Lindenhurst, NY |
Dr. Ruotolo performed surgery on my son when he was 10 months old. He was born with a cleft palate and numerous other issues. She caring, kind and one of the best surgeons I have ever seen. Five years later she performed surgery on me. She was one of the doctors who did my abdominoplasty. I could not be happier with the results. I love Dr. Ruotolo and highly recommend her to everyone.

I am a mom with a child who was born with multiple differences. These differences would have effected many aspects of his life. I was lucky to find a dr who is exceptionally well at explaining my child's conditions and set a safe treatment plan. I would always leave the office knowledgeable and confident. When the day would come for my child's surgery, I was giving my child to someone with loving hands. Dr Rotollo is a perfectionist at best! Her staff are always professional and helpful!

Love, love, love Dr Ruotolo. She is an excellent doctor and a terrific person. I highly recommend her.
