Reckless Ruckman

Rude, accusative, no regard for proper care of a patient, falsifying your answers to his questions, mean, judging, never have dealt with such a horrible ER doctor before. He even made up things to put in his report and i have made complaints against him. Have met others who alo have made complaints regarding him. Highly recommend you demand Dr. Grillo if you end up with Ruckman.

Avoid Doctor Ruckman - utterly unprofessional

Overall, I was offended by Doctor Ruckman and left AMA to seek treatment elsewhere. I won't go into specifics about the condition or (lack of treatment) but the triage nurse was so concerned, she came back to check on me twice in 55 minutes before he came to the room. He failed to introduce himself - wasn't wearing a name tag, then failed to introduce himself even though I pointed out that he failed to do so. I would recommend avoiding his shift in the ER at all costs. Choose another hospital - one that wouldn't employ him.
