      I had a Carpal tunnel diagnosis from a doc at OSU who had me get a wrist brace because he thought the situation did not warrant surgery. I have a high tolerance to pain and the brace did nothing to alleviate it. I could not sleep the pain was so bad. A friend recommended Dr. Ruff to me and I went. I told him the situation and FINALLY someone heard my voice! Dr. Ruff did carpel tunnel surgery and I have not had any problems since then! The office staff and surgical staff are wonderful too!
      in Columbus, OH |
      Dr. Ruff committed malpractice, and did a surgery on my hand that did not need to be done. After the surgery, he said to me:" I'm sorry, I was wrong about your hand." My wound from the surgery remained open for a month. I had to go to a wound specialist to correct Dr. Ruff's mistake. He is the worst hand surgeon I have ever known or met.
      in Springfield, OH |
      He is the kindest and most considerate physician I have ever known or worked with. He takes time to answer every question and his skills are excellent.

      Why Does Experience Matter?
