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.
