Patient Comments (1)
in Waban, MA |
Dr. Ruff was one of several doctors following my care at the Brigham & Womens Hospital pre and post surgery for a Cardiac Bypass Surgery. What struck me about his unprofessional demeanor was he he suggested to me that I find another hospital?? what is this arrogant doc saying?? If he had said this pre-operation Idefinitely wouldn't have been operated on there. He chuckled with the other Cardiac resident when rounding seeing me in the hospital. I would not receommend Dr. Ruff.
