    Dr.Ruestow is a great doctor. He leaves no stone unturned. He takes his time with every patient. He looks for the right medical answers to any problem. He is kind and carrying. I wish more doctor took the time to understand their patients needs.

    I went to Dr. Ruestow with excruciating pain secondary to a massive infection under my beard. Because the infection became so widespread, there were shots of nerve pain along with the general pain associated with the infection. His response began with a rigorous act of tugging on my beard to view the infection even after I stated to be careful. At the conclusion of the visit he prescribed me an NSAID! Worst prescription as it did nothing to ease my pain nor did it relieve inflammation!!

    Dr. Ruestow is a caring, friendly, knowledgable doctor. Have been seeing him for years and feel confident with his skills. His parathyroid diagnosis led to discovering/removal of thyroid cancer.

    I do not like this physician. His bedside manner is terrible.
