Patient Comments (1)
in Litchfield |
I just met Dr. Ruggerio today when my dermatologist recommended him to remove a subatios cyst near my eye. As luck would have it, they just had a cancellation and could see me in a few minutes. The office staff and nurses were very friendly and thorough with their history and pre exam. Then I met Dr. Ruggerio who impressed me even more with his explanation and professionalism. He took care of the cyst easily and with minimal discomfort. He has very delicate and well coordinated hands! perfect.
