After being referred by a psychiatrist to rule out reasons for proper medication management, this doctor told me she had no clue why I was sent to her, there’s nothing she can do for me. That was within the first 3sentences which included how are you and why are you here today? I would not recommend her. As for the office, I waited 45 minutes to be taken back - and I was the first appointment.

Dr. Rugino made my husband and me feel that she is a very caring and knowledgeable doctor. She was very attentive and listened when I told her about my husband's symptoms. She gave my husband a thorough examination and then explainedher diagnosis. She patiently answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns.

In and out! Went there for migraines and not only did she give me the prescription I was hoping for but she provided me with a list of vitamins that might help (which no doc I've ever been to does). Very informative and friendly.

Dr Papa Rugino was very kind. She listened to my symptoms and set a plan for what we will do. I'm in the process of having tests done. I found her to be thorough.. She asked if I had any questions. Excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend her.
