Today it is recognized as one of the top treatment centers in the U.S. with 20 board-certified dermatologists, including seven fellowship trained Mohs surgeons.

in Kansas City, MO |
Eventhough I didn't have a very good customer service, I had a great experience seeing Dr. Colin Ruff. He was knowledgable, attentive, gentle and a good listener. What I really liked about him is his caring attitude. He seems to actually care about his patients and not just there for money alone like a lot of doctors are. I would definitely recommend him to others ??

Very knowledgeable, kind, concerned and doesn't rush you through--takes his time when he's in the room to explain what's going and what to expect. Good listener. Very impressive!
in Lees Summit, MO |
I went to Dr. Ruff after another medical doctor was repeatedly not successful at treating me. Dr. Ruff took time to explain what was wrong, and what we needed to do for treatment. I initially called the office in Lee's Summit, Mo. That office referred me to Dr. Ruff in Leawood, Kansas, as he was reportedly handling their difficult cases. I did not get a warm fuzzy feeling from the office in Lee's Summit. I did feel very, very good about my interactions with the office in Leawood, Ks
in Paola, KS |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Ruff to anyone who is in need of his services. He is very professional and friendly. He took care of my problem quickly and professionally.
