We are consulting with Dr. Ruge for over 15 months now for our Son's condition. Dr. Ruge is a very nice person, very patient and has ton of experience. We love the care he provides for our son and is very methodical in his approach( which is good when it comes to infants and when you have to use a knife). We highly recommend Dr. Ruge and his office. - Raghu
