Dr. Ruddy diagnosed issue as bursitis after initial X-Rays - treatment, steroid injection. Not effective - was sent for MRI - indicated Avascular Necrosis (Steroid inj. WAS NOT the right approach - steroid use can cause this condition). He excused his initial treatment - suggested bone decompression procedure to temporarily treat condition - a treatment meant to put off total hip replacement. I came to find out, as I searched for a surgeon to do THR, that this treatment has been mostly abandoned

I visited Dr. Ruddy at least three times. Every time, his X-Ray technician took numerous X-Ray films for me without any necessary explanation. I thought Dr. Ruddy would explain his diagnosis or problem with my physical problem. No, he was busy recording and taking notes explaining nothing. For three times, he had not made any comments about any possible problems that I might have. He was always in a hurry without trying to communicate with me. I am totally disappointed with Dr. Ruddy.
