I am a RN with a life long history of Severe Asthma. Dr. Ruttgeizer is the very best physician I have ever met. She is BRILLIANT & has a wonderful bedside manner. She has changed my life. I truly believe she saved my life during 2 separate hospitalizations. Her secretary, Rosa ,is also fantastic.

Dr. Ruttgeizer has been treating me for a lung condition resulting from a metastisis from a previous cancer diagnosis. Dr. Ruttgeizer has always been available to answer questions and very easy to talk to always listening to any questions or concerns. Wonderful doctor and great staff.

After 15 years there is a total decline in ability . A doctor I trusted has turned into an incompetent rude doctor that has neglected a blood clot in my 19 year olds lung that now requires open heart surgery. My 19 year old granddaughter is facing a major surgery that could have been totally avoided . After 15 years I have transferred my records .

Never got to meet the doctor. Rosa called on morning of appointment to tell me that radiological tech didn't come to work so we can't do all the tests but come in an hour later and we'll see you. If you have time to waist and not receive the complete and proper testing you require, then this is the office for you; not for me.

I found out I had 2 Nodules on my lungs, I was extremely nervous. Dr. Denise Ruttgeizer came highly recommended to me. I found the staff (especially Rosa) all very professional and very kind and caring to me. Dr. Ruttgeizer took her time explaining everything, and made me feel very at ease. She suggested I go for a Pet Scan immediately and I am taking her advice and am going this Monday. Her mannerism was so calming to me, I walked out of her office feeling positive instead of negative.

After seeing Dr Ruttgeizer for the first time today I can understand why she has over 40 excellent reviews. The atmosphere in the front office is friendly and efficient, I waited only 10 min to see her. Her assistant is friendly and welcoming, put me at ease right away. The doctor is very kind, thorough and took the time to show me my xrays, catscans & explain every detail. Luckily I had a happy ending visit but this DR is a definite keeper!!!
