Review of Dr. McRae

-

The doctor is very nice and helped me with my problem. The billing however is questionable at best. Seems they just want to maximize billing/payments. Was told to come in for followup of test results and the visit comprised only of telling me everything was ok and asking how I felt after taking the medication prescribed. It lasted 3 minutes but I was charged for a full office visit. This is something that could have been done by telephone. Also billed for procedure not done!

Review of Dr. Bellino

-

This is not a doctor complaint but an office complaint. I had made an appointment for my son at the E Greenwich office because he works 2 min away. After confirming the appt with the correct office with time and address, my son went in for his scheduled appt. and they told him that he was scheduled for the prov office. He had to take time out of work and now sit at an office miles away and obviously is going to be late for the appt and god only knows when he will get to be seen. Unprofessional

Review of Dr. Ruhl

Dr Ruhl was wonderful- respectful, professional and kind. He performed surgery on my two year old baby and he did an excellent job. We are very grateful.

Review of Dr. Ruhl

-

Had my first visit with him and it just felt awkward. One of those things where you can't put your finger on it. It was almost as if he was a more awkward, less entertaining member of the Addams family. Not a put you at ease type.

Review of Dr. McRae

-East Greenwich, RI |

Went in for a simple ear cleaning, but left with a bloody and plugged ear. Dr. McRae seemed to be in so much of a hurry, the tool broke in my ear, he tried to clean it up, blood came out of my ear, and my ear was not cleaned. I was rushed out of the exam room even though I felt nauseous and off balance. Will not return to this practice.

Review of Dr. Ruhl

-Chelmsford, MA |

Absolutely terrible experience with him, seemed like I was wasting his time. Did not even ask why I was seeing him. Talked about one symptom that I had and started to walk out without even mentioning anything about the sinus issues I also wrote down as my main complaint. Absolutely useless and a total waste of time. Told me suggestions as he was walking out of the room. Waited for at least a half an hour for him to not even be with me for 5 minutes. Would not recommend even to an enemy.

Review of Dr. Ruhl

- in North Kingstown, RI |

My son had his adenoids out with Dr Ruhl. He was courteous and knowledgeable in the office. The day of surgery went really well. It's only been a couple of weeks post surgery. If my son continues with his pre-surgery symptoms going forward, I will amend this positive review. But so far so good.

Review of Dr. Ruhl

-Exeter, RI |

My entire family sees dr. Ruhl and has been for 15+ years and we wouldn't go to any other ent doctor. I had my tonsils out 10 years ago and my son just had his out and they were both a good experience. I would recommend Dr. Ruhl to anyone. I have been to the providence office but I prefer to go to east Greenwich.

Review of Dr. Ruhl

-Providence, RI |

Not helpful. Expensive, worthless tests were ordered. Rude staff. All about money. I saw him at his Providence office.

Review of Dr. Duff

-Providence, RI |

He couldn't do anything to help me, yet he ordered expensive tests. He then said I needed to make another appointment with his office with another doctor; thereby, charging for another office visit. I think I got the run around, and they were mostly interested in making the most money they could as quickly as possible. The office staff was rude, and made jokes about how long I could expect to be there. Unprofessional.
