Dr Rungee explains things in a way that the average person can easily understand what’s going on with their body. As a surgeon there’s none better. Both his ability in surgery and his bedside manner are well above board. You won’t find a better orthopedic surgeon anywhere.

Had a very positive appointment with Dr. Rungee. Very informative and most of all he didn't think I needed surgery which I was very happy for.

Dr Rungee has been my orthodontist for several years. I’m having pain in my hip area and he is being very thorough to make certain he is treating my problem correctly. He is a fantastic doctor and I would recommend him highly!

Was able to get a next day appointment. Was able to get X-ray and see Dr Rungee quickly. He diagnosed my finger issue and has me on a plan to heal it. He took the time to examine throughly, answer my questions and explain the internal injury.
