Dr. Ruotolo is an excellent doctor! I had surgery on my left knee with Dr.Ruotolo after having had various other opinions and being unsatisfied. Dr. Ruotolo thoroughly explained everything to me and was extremely personable. I feel great after having surgery and am very pleased with the post operation visits I have had with Dr. Ruotolo. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Ruotolo repaired my torn ACL and Meniscus in November 2013. He encouraged me to walk without crutches 4 days after surgery. I was scared, but trusted him and it was worthwhile. I went to PT 3 times a week and did exercises by myself the days off. I have never had any issues and went back to playing soccer after 7 months from surgery. Dr. Ruotolo did an excellent job. My scars are barely visible and I get compliments on the well done job! For this type of surgery I would definitely go back!!

Excellent Dr, repaired my torn rotator cuff and the therapist was amazed how soon I had full range of movement. Very nice, answers calls, & good bedside manner. The staff including his PA Maria are awesome.

I first met Dr. Ruotolo in emergency when I dislocated my shoulder, he later did surgery, things took time, he recommended a great physical therapist. I now recently came back to him for my knee, which he also did surgery and it feels great, Surprisingly, I was at work the very next day. Feeling great. His staff is kind and caring, and he explained everything that I required information on.
