Patient Reviews (1)
in Savannah GA |
Dr. Ruf expressed a very poor bedside manner as did his staff. The office did not seem receptive to children despite having accepted children as patients. Dr. Rug is limited in his scope of expertise and did not explain the risks and alternatives to the offered procedure. There are other, newer techniques available for the condition that was presented and he expressed a total lack of knowledge. Apparently the only podiatrist in the area. Disappointing and concerning that he has a monopoly here.
