I have been his patient for many years. He is very knowledgeable. Always easy to get in to see. Spends the necessary time I need to make sure I understand whatever is happening with my current condition and explains any procedures thoroughly. Always a kind word and much encouragement. Simple to get referrals to specialists if he has concerns about anything outside his field of expertise. Exactly what any patient would want from a PCP. Thanks Dr. Ruffing.

Scheduled me in quickly when my primary physician suddenly left practice. I loved his manner, his attention to what I was saying, and his explanation of what should happen next.

In my opinion one of the worst doctors I have been to in my life.

He is a polite person is a good point. Was trying to explain my situation after getting out of hospital, after a very few minutes, he told me he had to "move along". Had been in Hospital for pinched nerve. Lived with this half my life, even though CT scan & MRI showed nothing. Would not write a prescription for nerve pain, nor give me a referral to a neuro surgeon. Did write subscription for Gabapentin to help relax nerve.
