Review of Dr. Ruff

-Northwest Suburbs |

Dr. Ruff’s bedside manner left much to be desired. He was rather dismissive of my condition and my eye has gotten worse since I’ve seen him. He put me on a medication that my internist thought was not a good choice given its many side effects and the questionable impact it would effect. I’m seeing another doctor today hopefully to get condition I came in for properly treated. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody. His technical assistant, however, was wonderful.

Review of Dr. Ruff

Stay away from this Doctor. I was in the process of moving to a small town without any ophthalmologists and made an appointment with Dr. Ruff before moving to see if I needed cataract surgery. Dr. Ruff was like a car salesman telling me that I should have cataract surgery now. He promised my vision would be greatly improved and that I would be able to see the tennis ball much better; not with Dr. Ruff incompetence. His lack of skill made my vision significantly worse than before the surgery.

I have been Dr Ruff's patient for over 20 years. My husband and 3 sons are too. We have all had excellent care and understanding from him and his staff. We are thankful to be in his capable hands.

Review of Dr. Ruff

- in North Chicago, IL |

I felt he gave me a fair amt of time and explained everything. I hesitate to return because of his office staff. They were incredibly rude and unprofessional from the start. The staff made the ov that more stressful. I was quoted one price over the phone and it doubled at ov. I was in shock since it is all out of pocket (and I'm on a fixed income). When I saw the dr I was still stunned and forgot to ask questions. Mistakes happen; how it's handled shows their lack of competency/professionalism.

I scheduled an appointment after a car accident. I was concerned about my eye health after a blow from the airbags left me with two black eyes. Dr Ruff was very kind and professional as was his staff and even with the construction at the hospital his office was easily accessible.

If you could give zero stars that would be more appropriate. My daughter was sent to see Dr Ruff by an urgent care center. She is in the middle of an autoimmune reaction with her eye. She saw another doctor who was not in his office. Her pain was a 10 and moving to other parts of her eye. Dr was extremely rude. Dismissed her without any assistance with her pain or further examination of possible additional reasons for her pain. Find someone else

Review of Dr. Ruff

- in Lake Forest, IL |

Dr. Ruff explained to me that most of his patients had 'real' medical issues. From this I inferred he felt I was wasting his time. He complained his office staff had 'squeezed me in' for no reason. I received a referral from my internist, called to make an appointment. I am not responsible for his admin staff, nor knowledgable of their inner workings. After examining my eyes, he said that my issue was common with 'my rosacea'. I don't have rosacea. His tone, and actions were condescending.
