Dr. Ruotolo and her staff are all professional and very friendly. My newborn has been under her care for the past 4 weeks for treatment of re-shaping the cartilage in both ears with a device called EarWells. My son is seenweekly and sometimes bi-weekly if he pulls the devices off and needs to get new ones put on. I have always been seen within 15 minutes or less from my appointment time, (most often less.) I am more than pleased with how sweet and loving she and her staff are to my son. I would highly recommend Dr. Ruotolo to anyone needing any type of treatment, especially those with children and/or infants.
