in Rising Sun, MD |
Have been dealing with Dr Ruffini (or he us) for close to 20 years. Had it not been for him, I wouldn't have the 3 beautiful sons I currently have, Dr Ruffini diagnosed and had treated their dad for cancer that was very close to being spread throughtout his body. I count my blessings as does the members of our family to have a doctor who cares so much about his patients and their families,
