Patient Comments (6)
in Portland, OR |
Out of three Orthopedic Surgeons that attended to my knee problems Dr. Ruesch was absolutely the best of the three. Torn meniscus on both right and left knee. If in the future I have a knee replacement Dr. Ruesch will be doing the surgery.
in Happy Valley, OR |
Dr. Ruesch has been my surgeon for two ACL replacement surgeries, as well as the surgeon for my husband's Meniscus surgery and a shoulder surgery following a motorcycle accident. He is knowledgeable, precise, explains everything in detail, gives you all the options available, and is willing to take the time needed to sit and talk to you. The only time my husband had to wait for him, it was because of a situation at the hosipital that required him to work late and he was very apologetic.
Happy Valley, OR |
Wait time was long(over an hour), felt like concerns were dismissed. It's possible he's right, but felt the care was lacking.
