    Dr Rugo is an expert in Triple Negative Breast Cancer and she has always been attentive and helpful. I see her every 3 weeks and although sometimes I see the NP for 30 min and Rugo for only 5-10, there are also times when I see both of them for longer. She has spent well over 30 minutes with me when needed and I never feel rushed. I try to keep in mind that while I'm waiting on my appointment, someone else may be spending an hour with her, hearing really terrible news. She's an excellent doctor!

    Rugo is a disaster. She is disorganized and loses track of important pieces of information. Her judgement is poor and her recommendations are terrible. She is constantly canceling and rescheduling appointments. If she keeps her appointments, patients wait hours. Her staff is constantly turning over - none stay with her very long.
