Patient Comments (1)
My 6 year old granddaughter was very close to losing her finger when they called Dr Ruffin and he came down at midnight and performed the surgery and re-attached her little finger and her prognosis is very good. This was after several comments about having to amputate. I cannot express my gratitude to Dr Ruffin and all you assisted him. We are all so grateful for wonderful caring surgeons like Dr Ruffin
