The time I spend waiting is alot longer then the amount of time he spends with me. I have noticed he always seems to be in a hurry and has even answered his cell phone in front of me. I have come with questions in my post op appointments and find I get more out of the nurse. As my surgery seems to have been a success, I would appreciate more feedback and to feel important when it's my time.

Dr. Ruggiero Sr is a very competent and professional physician who I’ve seen for more than 10 years. He communicates well all the important information and provides personal care. He is not as communicative as some on my other physicians but when you draw him out you realize how knowledgeable he is and is using cutting edge medical intervention!

Dr Ruggiero Sr took me as a new patient after 3 prior surgeries to my knee. He took the time to review my MRI in full and with me, and then performed my fourth surgery. This time addressing the issues surrounding my constant pain. I trust Dr R Sr and this office as they honestly listen and then work with you.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Ruggiero for 17 yrs,. He always takes his time, explains everything in detail and if surgery is absolutely necessary performs the procedure with expertise and caring. I would and have recommended him to everyone I know.

Dr Ruggiero Sr did a full knee replacement on right knee in September 2015. He is a great coach as to working with his parents on how to regain the full use and movement of ones knee. Dr knew when to take me off those pain killers. I thank him for that. A remarkable Doctor who loves what he does helping people to get back to living life. I need my right knee done in the future and he will be doing it.

Knowledgeable and very able to communicate both a problem and options to deal with it. I did not feel rushed and felt the problem was taken care of at my one month follow up.

How did the doctor lose an operative report? Office staff is rude uncaring and not professional. As a result went to another orthopedic surgeon for major surgery and was very pleased.

Dr. Robert Ruggiero Sr. has been treating me since 1977 when I sustained multiple fractures in an auto accident. He had also treated me for a condition that preexisted the MVA and has been great in my opinion.
