Patient Comments (3)
in Evansville, IN |
Phenomenal doctor. He did the same procedure in ten minutes in-office that my previous surgeon was supposed to do six months ago during my surgery for the exact same issue (the first doctor never fixed the issue even though I had a same day surgery for the same issue). He was so compassionate and comforting. I don't think I'd have ever agreed to an in-office procedure of that nature if Dr. Arruffat had been so compassionate and reassuring. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Arruffat
