Patient Comments (5)
in Little neck, ny |
Dr. Rucker is very knowledgeable and attentive to his patients. Great doctor!
Boynton Beach, FL |
My Father, Herbert Carmel, died in a Florida Hospital, after 16 months of sufferring due to the unprofessional conduct of Dr. Steven Rucker. Dr. Rucker refused to exercise his fiduciary responsibility to my father, about the life threatening conduct of my father;s chosen medical proxy holder. This unethical proxy, Herbert Carmel. Randall Carmel, refused to provide my father with continued dialysis, and refused to provide my father with in-home nursing and rehabilitative care.

Inattentive and terrible staff.

Dr. Rucker is very kind and knowledgeable. One of the smartest doctors I ever went to.
in New York, NY |
I would recommend Dr. Rucker because he was conclusive and assertive about his medical findings and I liked it especially and it saved me money opting out of other medicines.
