If bedside manner and having a kind, compassionate doctor who listens is important to you I wouldn't go see Dr Ruggiero. Right off the bat I felt like I was being quizzed on my symptoms and everything I said was met with a cocky attitude of 'well that's not sinus related' , 'well that can be caused by other things' ... it's as if he didn't believe me, and that I was stupid for coming to see him. He was demeaning and upsetting and I overheard him fussing about another doctor from the hallway.

He is excellent with our child and was the first ear doctor to really make a difference and help our child's ears. I only wish I would have found him much sooner! So very thankful for him. He is soooo loving and gentle and really cares. I thank God for him. His office staff is also terrific and so easy to talk to as well. I wish more doctor's offices were happy, warm and inviting like his. Our child has been doing so good that he hasn't had to see him in at least a year and we miss him, lol!!!!!

I have been going to Dr. Ruggiero for over 10 years. I find him to be a very knowledgeable physician. He gives you a thorough examination and always listens and answers your questions. His course of treatment has always been very effective for me and solved my problems. I had a hearing problem in one ear and trusted him to operate and he restored my hearing in that ear. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a excellent ENT physician.

I have been going to Dr. Ruggiero for many years. I have always found him to be an excellent listener and spot on with his diagnosis and treatment. He explains the reason for the issue you have and and ensures you leave the office with no unanswered questions or concerns. He has also shown himself to be a very personable and caring doctor. I have recommended him to several family members and others.
