Dr. Runquist and his staff are always friendly to both my wife and I, who've seen him for a few years now. He has always been reassuring and thoroughly explains my symptoms to me in a way that even I can understand. Overall he's a great doctor and I recommend his practice if you live in the area.

If I could give Dr. Runquist 10 (ten) stars I would. He treated my mother recently at Roper on Calhoun St. His P.A. came in to see my mother a couple times Dr. Runquist followed up immediately afterward. The care that he gave her was outstanding. He was not arrogant or condescending and took the time to make sure our family understood his treatment plan. Although he obviously has lots of patients to care for he made us feel like my mom was his only patient. Thank God for doctors like him.

I am grateful for the care and time Dr Runquist has put in to taking care of myself and my family.

Dr. Runquist is an outstanding cardiologist. He is very busy but utilizes his time well to do the important things in patient care. As a cardiologist myself, I recognize the quality of care that Dr. Runquist provides. I highly recommend him. He does outstanding work in the heart catheterization laboratory.

No communication skills. Schedules all sorts of tests and drugs with no explaining. Very arrogant and patronizing..
in Charleston, SC |
After several visits to Dr. Runquist's office I barely recognize him. I have seen his PA more than I have seen him. During scheduling I am told I will see Dr. Runquist. Upon my arrival am told I would see PA. However, he is seen moving about the facility conversing with staff or on the phone and does not acknowledge my presence. My last visit the PA gave me a new sample medication to help with my complaint. No patient doctor relationship. No genuine concern.
