I had my knee replacement surgery in February this year. I have been very pleased with my surgery as well as all services by his office. I have not had any complications with my surgery and I am very happy I choose to have it done. I would recommend Dr Ruark to anyone. Gayle Tatum

Great review time with Dr. Ruark about my 12-week review of my Knee replacement surgery. His exam of my Knee & post-opp. instructions were very beneficial. A very satisfactory experience.

Dr. Ruark addressed my concerns about the timing of replacing my left knee. (My right knee was replaced nine months ago.) I have full confidence in his recommendations. The surgical procedure and my ongoing recovery has progressed most successfully without complications.

I am a former major league catcher with the St. louis Cardinals, Montreal Expos and Kansas City Royals....thru out my career I had knee problems repaired by some of the best in the business. Dr. Randall Ruark replaced my knee recent and I can not explain the First class treatment that He and his staff did for me and my dad. The recovery time and surgery itself is outstanding.. Thanks to him and his staff that replaced mine and my fathers knee we are back to playing golf and enjoying life!!!!!

Dr. Ruark took over the practice of Dr. Savory when Savory retired. Dr. Savory had replaced my hip. When I ran into some concerns with the hip (it turned out to be tendonitis but was frightening as all of the pain was coming from the new hip), Dr. Ruark and his staff would not see me for 2 months and had no concern for following up with a past patient. Again, it was frightening. I was not important in a practice that is now focused on quantity rather than quality.
