Recently went to Dr. Rueff, he was recommended by a friend who went to him. He has helped me regain my mobility and had his staff follow up and he followed up on my recovery! Nice man.

Enjoy running and my knee started swelling and couldn't run because of the pain. Dr. Rueff tried several options before recommending surgery. I appreciated the conservative approach he took since surgery was not want I wanted. I did have to have surgery; however, I was dedicated to my PT. Because of Dr. Rueff's skills and support I am now pain free and training for the mini marathon in May!! Highly recommend.

Had no bed side manners whatsoever. I was in a car wreck and had been experiencing pain for months in my shoulder. He took xrays and said, you're fine, nothing is wrong with you, as I was in tears from the pain. Sent me PT for 6 weeks so I did. Went for 16 PT visits and still the pain was excruciating.Decided that it was time for a second opinion. After one visit to see my NEW and AMAZING specialist, he said I had a tear in my rotator cuff, scheduled an MRI. I am now having surgery 1 year later!
