This is the worst doctor I have ever seen. He did not diagnosis me correctly and put me on so many medications I went into a coma for 4 days. He is very hateful and does not listen. He had his mind made up without listening to anything I said. While in the hospital I met patients that refused to even see him.

Dr. Ruck has been a consistently awful doctor to deal with. On two separate occasions when a family member has been in the hospital he has REFUSED to communicate, even when legally required, with the family. He is dismissive of concerns about the patient and the safety of the patient and patient's family. He is not safe for his patients or their families and his disregard for others is pathetic. I hope his apathy does not lead to something tragic. How he is still practicing medicine is beyond me
