Dr. Petruff is wonderful. I had my first colonoscopy today and felt confident in her skills, experience, and good care, as well as in the entire team at St. Francis. Dr. Petruff is very charming and is a great listener -- as good as it gets.

I could not get apt until late 2/17. I saw another MD in the same practice who just continued the same 2/14 diagnosis. ...more

Poor communications. Always in a hurry to leave bedside. She has no interest in her patients questions. Or the patient. Any explanation you do get is vague and hurried.
