Not only is he excellent in his rapport with a new patient, I am happy that he teaches as well.

Review of Dr. Ruth

- in Galesburg, IL |

Back in November 1st 2001 I broke my pelvis in half below my spinal cord, I also broke my lower left leg in six places below the knee, my sacrum, my left hip socket. He was able to use hardware and put me back together. I am able to walk without a cane or any assistance. He saved my life. He is a great Doctor.

Review of Dr. Wild

- in Greensboro, NC |

Dr. Wild spent time sitting with us, reviewing the films, CT's, and information, teaching, and ensuring my family member understood her diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. He explained his physical exam, what symptoms meant, and what to look for going forward.

I would be missing the lower half of my right leg had it not been for Dr. Ruth. He's a lifesaver.
