This was my first visit with Dr. Bonsack. I liked him and I think it was good. He seemed a bit rushed...not unpleasantly. Just didn't seem to go in to quite the same amount of detail as my previous GP, Dr. [...], who has retired. Not a complaint, you understand, just an observation.

I like Dr. Bonsack. He's friendly and professional. However my visits always seem fairly rushed. Not sure if it's just his demeanor or a reflection of the number of patients he sees a day. I get the feeling he assesses me as being in fairly good health based on my appearance and my basic medical history and does not feel the need to spend much time on anything. I am not overly concerned about it now as I do feel I'm in good enough health but must admit it gives me pause as I think about my aging and being confronted with inevitable health concerns. I don't think I need to be pampered but would like to feel like my medical care is getting more deliberate and considered as I age.

I've seen Dr. Bonsack for several years because he and I have a straight forward line of communication. I'm a reasonably knowledgable layman regarding health issues and I expect to my Doctor(s) to "cut to the chase", i e, be succinct. Bruce Bonsack continues to provide health care in the manner I seek. I have great respect for his knowledge and advice.

Dr. Bonsack is one of the best doctor's I have ever seen. I recommended him to my late father-in law and he changed doctors. Dr. Bonsack was his primary care physician until he passed away. He was also very happy with Dr. Bonsack.

Dr. does not make eye contact when speaking. It makes him hard to trust. He referred me to a podiatrist not in my health insurance network, when I pointed this out, was told to find one on my own.

Overall a good experience - realize I'm a new patient - and that I need to become familiar with a new system. Also a good was the referral assistance received for appointments with other Specialist Doctors in the Swedish and Minor & James systems. Overall the MyChart aspect works well [...]

I have found this care provider increasingly difficult to speak to [...]. I am starting to look for a new care provider who I feel more comfortable speaking about my health and sexuality.
