I have been under the care of many so called specialist for hand, arm & shoulder care Dr. Ruggeri was the ONLY one who went out of his way to throughly exam any of my issues regarding his specialties! His instilled integrity, professionalism, & unparalleled surgical skills have given me relief from years of needless pain no other even cared too do much if anything about.. All of his staff are respectful, considerate, and professional towards all. Dr. Ruggeri truly is the BEST in his profession!

Nice guy, seems knowl dgeable. Has a bad habit of overbooking Times. Today I waited 45 minutes, and then after asking, I was told probably another 45 minutes. I drove thru a rain storm, total 1.5 hrs because of storm, normally a one hr drive. Was told by his stafff this is "normal". This is unacceptable. Will try one more time with "first" appt after lunch, in 2 more weeks. I do not have a good few,no abt this.

Dr. Ruggeri repaired my rotator cuff. I was very worried because I heard so many people say they never stopped hurting but I can tell you I am so much better. I should have done it sooner. Dr. Ruggeri is very thorough and explained everything so I knew what he was going to do. I would do it again.

I have had several medical issues with myself and family. Dr. Ruggeri has taken very good care of us. He spends time explaining the problems and getting it resolved. He cares about his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Ruggeri or his PA Gary North to anyone.

I had finger surgery and Dr. Ruggeri seemed quite knowledge about the entire procedure. I actually dealt more with his PA than him who seemed to be equally excellent . The office staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

Worst doctor ever!!!!! I waited over an hour past my appointment to see this so called doctor. I am in extreme pain and he tells me to sleep with a pillow attached to my arm and prescribes pain pills??? I dont want pain pills. I want to get to the root of my problems and fix them if possible. Not cover them up with pain pills!!!!!!!!! Not to mention his staff fooling around and making fun of patients. Very unprofessional!!!!!!!!
