Dr Rukavina has been my cardiologist for 17 years, and I have always found him to be very caring, trustworthy, honest about my health, and consistent with his patient care. He takes time to talk to me and my family, anytime any one of us has ever had a question. He has always treated me with the decency and respect that many doctors just don't care to do any more. His coworkers, Dr Thommasoni and new Dr Duggal, have also been great if they were on call when I needed them, along with the staff.
