What People Say About Dr. James Ruggles, MD

Dr Ruggles' approach to helping our son was more effective than anything we found during his formative years--and we saw many doctors. Dr Ruggles was thoughtful and measured in his approach; and didn't offer simple, ineffective solutions that other doctors did. He's skilled and wise and caring.

I am a parent of 2 adopted children with major mental illness. Dr. Ruggles has been their psychiatrist for a total of 12 years. He has the perfect art of medicine and compassion and has helped me keep going when I thought it was all to much. He refers out when he needs to and also affirms my girls in the most amazing ways. He has truly been one of the main reasons I have survived and at times even thrived through this journey of special needs parenting.
