This would have been my second time getting a colonoscopy with Dr. Ruderman, however, the new policy is if your BMI is too high, you have to go to some other place to have it done. No problem, I've been fat shamed before. . The problem is there are no scheduling options. You have to just take whatever ONE day a month that Dr. Ruderman decides to go to the other place. Never mind work or convenience for a paying patient.

Ruderman seems very rushed and agitated like he hates his job.I have gone to him for several years now and he has changed.His scheduler for a colonoscopy is a nightmare they only know his schedule for one month in advance so you cannot plan easily around your work and life schedules.They call you last minute so you have minimal options I think they are spread too thin now and the quality of work has declined in the last ten years a lot.You feel like a number not a person.

callling for an appointment took multiple calls, due to very long wait times. Dr Ruderman provided a diagnosis in 10 min, with no testing ordered, prescribed Rx and said see me in 3 months. Turns out, there was a test he could have ordered, which I had to ask for, after I spoke to a patient of another dr in the practice. test came back +/ new Rx ordered, no follow up or info of test result details provided, now I've been dropped as a patient. NOT impressed with care! go elsewhere PLEASE!

Great Dr.,horrible practice. Just had to "fire "Dr. R, i've been going to him for years for colonoscopy and endoscopes. As a doctor he's great,but in the practice you're a number and they mess up Billings. today was the final straw. 3 o'clock appointment at 4:25 still had not seen the doctor, and the appointment would basically be five minutes,yeah let's schedule you for your yearly scopes. Every year I go. I spent four months straightening out the last billing. Today was the final straw.

Had colonoscopy on 1/23/17 and I will not be returning. The procedure itself went fine, the afternoon on the 24th, I starting having left shoulder, arm and back pain where I could not sleep even though I took Ibuprofen. I was positioned on my left side and before I was allowed to get comfortable the nurse anesthetist was "slamming" the sedative in. Something happened while I was asleep, left arm was tugged or repositioning was too rough. Staff was in a rush from beginning to end.

Doc himself a real pro. Competent, polite, takes the time, and really garnered my trust. One of my faves ever! Staff also pleasant and competent as can be. If there are downsides, the scheduling is too tight, they run behind – sometimes noticeably – and leaving the patient a bit impatient! After going through a whole prep procedure for colonoscopy, you don't want to cancel, walk out and start over again, but the waits can be fairly distressing. Maybe grab day's first appointment?

Waited over a month for a new patient appointment. Was running late at work so I called to see if Dr had any later appointments. Was told no so I rushed out of work. Arrived at 4:15 at 5:30 I was still in the waiting room. Finally put in a room only to be told 2 patients ahead of me. After another 15 minutes I asked for my money back and left. My time is just as valuable. They could have told me he was behind schedule when I called. Absolutely unacceptable. Very rude.

Definitely recommend the Dr. His Scheduler not so much. It has been a week since my appointment and I was told Scheduler would call me the next day. After a week I have still not heard from the scheduler. I told the person when I was there I would not get a call the next day. she said oh I am making a special note. All other times I have needed an apt I have had to call. This time for my procedure I am holding off to see just how long it will take her.
