I have seen Dr. Ruskin for years and he has always been very knowledgable and helpful. He took the time to answer my questions and made sure I was comfortable with my plan of care.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Ruskin is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. He has always explained things to me in a way that I could understand and my calls have always been returned very timely.
in Mesa, AZ |
Very Professional!

I felt rushed thru my appointment, to the point I couldn't ask questions and when I asked to see the doctor I couldn't. He gave me many injections of the years but the last one was the final one. Horrible bedside manner, didn't check on me afterwards in the recovery room.
in Mesa, AZ |
This is my first time asking for help with my back. He ordered x rays, said he would call me with the results. Two weeks later no call. I had to leave a message for him to call me. Not a good first impression. I will be going to a different doctor that keeps his word.
