Dr. Ruckenstein is an expert in cochlear implants - he even wrote a book on the subject. That's why I chose him and I was not disappointed! He is a great surgeon and has an amazing team working with him. He is the best and I am doing great! Thank you Dr. Ruckenstein
I have had ear problems all my life. I have been to multiple surgeons. The last 2 surgeons I saw told me to see Dr. Ruckenstein. They were right. He fixed my right ear so I no longer get infections. He always greeted me with a smile. If you have an ear problem he is the one to see
I am stunned after a visit with Dr. Ruckenstein that lasted no more than a minute, including the time it took him to blow his nose. Having had trouble with ears feeling blocked for many years, I was looking forward to seeing a specialist. For him to simply look in the ears and say there was no wax and walk out, at a cost to me of about $1 per second, and income to him no doubt of considerably more, is unconscionable. I will not waste further time on him. For all I know, he may be a fine surgeon, in which case he should probably stick to walking into the room once the patient is under general anÃ¦sthetic.
I have been bi-laterally cochlear implanted by this Dr. Bedside manner is terrible. Both times different concerns after surgery & he NEVER contacted me himself, he let the on call staff assist me & I KNEW MORE THAN THEY DID. He is impersonal and treated me as though I was below him & he did not have time for me. I will NOT return for reimplantation to this doctor. 2xs was plenty to be treated in such an unprofessional manner.
did a "Hack job" on my left ear
Dr. Ruckenstein was professional and caring during my appointment. My surgery and follow up were without problems. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Dr. Ruckenstein implanted my left ear with an AB Cochlear implant. From surgery to follow up I only have the highest option of Dr. Ruckenstein.
One of the best ear doctors around... I recently had ear surgery performed by doctor ruckenstein and I have absolutely no complaints.. If your looking for a good doc who knows his field you can't go wrong with him... I've never waited more then 10 mins to get seen by him either which is a plus.. Overall I'd give him a 5 star rating
No communication with me, the patient, at all. No questions or opportunity to mention any of the symptoms, details, anything about an ailment that is not yet diagnosed. You would think at least one of the inputs desired would be the patient's experiences.
It is very unpleasant to talk with this doctor. After waiting for over 50 minutes, he rushed me out! The diagnosis was ridiculous. Not sure how can a doctor like him be elected as a top doctor???
I have been going to several ent doctors for over 30 yrs and had several surgeons for my ear problems.I have always have good experiences with dr. Ruckenstein and his staff is caring.As my surgeon he has been efficient and the fastest recovery time.He will continue to be my ent for my future apointments.
When the doctor sees you an hour late with no apology for his tardiness, it was a sign. The three minute visit wasn't worth the wait. Without a real diagnosis or explanation, some blanket statements were made which in no way explained the symptoms. A second opinion is definitely in order.
had Stapendectomy May 2010... its now January 2011.. and still having problems... I was normal the day I went in for operation... now I have nystagmus... diagnosed by two North Jersey Doctors... Long story short...He did the surgery.. and he don't care what happens after!
I waited in the examination room for 40 minutes before Dr. Ruckenstein appeared. He went through the motions, asked no follow-up questions, gave patronizing answers, and confirmed a diagnosis. My first and last visit with Dr. Rushenstein.
recommend against. Care is lacking. Concern for you as patient is nonexistent. Nonresponsive.
a great surgeon. have been to many ear doctors. he is without question the best.
