Dr Ruffo was an excellent doctor who made me feel like a friend rather than a patient. We need more doctors like him in the world. His office staff was very kind as well. Would definitely recommend Dr Ruffo.
All the girls/ladies in the office were very nice and friendly. Dr. Ruffo was very knowledgeable and very nice, this was my first visit and the Dr made my feel very comfortable. Very friendly atmosphere which is important to me when visiting a doctors office...thank you all
Awesome doctor. Very funny and sweet. Very professional and truly a talented podiatrist. Would recommend this office to anyone with foot and ankle problems!!
As a former nurse and current Compliance/HIPAA Officer I was impressed with Dr. Ruffo's knowledge and approach. He is extremely qualified and has an amazing friendly, warm personality and approach. Dr. Ruffo showed me my x-rays and explained clearly what the problem is and how to fix it. We discussed my issue, will need surgery, but did not press. Told my husband and I to discuss and decide when surgery will be done. The office staff is quite efficient and extremely nice. This was an excellent health care experience.
Dr. Ruffo is always a pleasure to see. He's got a great personality and definitely knows his stuff. I've seen a number of podiatrists in my life, but he is by far the best. Highly recommended!
Good visit. Heading in right direction.
Dr. Ruffo is a terrific practitioner and an upbeat, friendly person. He listens to my concerns and always makes my foot feel better. I have followed him from his first office which was near to my home to his present location, which is not. He's worth the trip! The wait time is not usual, and its only because he takes time with each patient.

I took my 93 year old Dad. The Dr and his staff were so attentive and kind. I chose Dr Ruffo because of his reviews on ZocDoc. He does indeed live up to his rave reviews. Thank you Dr Ruffo and staff
He is very knowledgeable and very likable. I have seen him before 5 years ago and saw an associate of his when I was told he moved and did not feel the same warmth that I felt with Dr. Ruffo. I would definitely recommend family and friends to go see him.
