I really liked Dr. Rufner. He was very well prepared for my initial consultation. He had received medical records from my other doctors and it was obvious he had reviewed them prior to my appointment. The problem is with follow up. The support/office staff has been very difficult to deal with. It took a full week to get his office to send prescriptions to my pharmacy. At this writing, I have been waiting 5 days for a refill.

Dr. Rufner was thorough in his office visit, but subsequent follow-up messages and referrals took considerable time. His staff is quite negligent and lack basic customer service skills. For example, I emailed Dr. Rufner to notify him that I was faxing FMLA documents to his office for my employer. Nothing was returned after 3 weeks. I called & no one knew the status. I faxed the documents again & promised completion the next day. I was called the next day & told he would complete them.

If you ask him questions Dr. Rufner will take the time to explain treatment options with you. Much more generous with his time than most doctors.

I had an endoscopy and was prescribed medication. The medication was not working and it took me two weeks to get answers through his assistant, even after I asked if I could get a quick personal phone call with him. The assistant was not knowledgeable and when I asked her if I could get a call back from the doctor, she said no. Very disappointing.
