Specialties

Dr. John C Ruggian has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He use to be a very good physician. No longer seems to care. Office staff hangs up on callers. I have seen this with my own eyes called and have been pit on hold for 15 minutes or more. Asked for copy of medical records never received. Poor medical care

Not going back

After years of seeing this doc, this is only one who has never set up a follow-up for a yearly exam or blood work, never hear from the office staff either, when other docs make a follow up appointment with you the same day. Gives you a brief visit, meds and send you on your way. Just doesn't seem interested in his patients enough for me.

Five Stars

I am so happy that I finally found a doctor who listens to me. Dr. Ruggian diagnosed me when it seemed nobody else could. An excellent find! The staff is friendly and makes you feel right at home. Very warm and always willing to give you a smile. I think that is important, especially when you are not feeling your best.
