John Ruggiano did not help me

I had one appointment with him for medication consultation. He did not listen to my concerns and when I talk to him about this he was very dismissive. I would not recommend seeing him if you could help it.

Time to Retire?

I have been a patient of Dr. Ruggiano for the past year. He is an older gentleman, but still knows his meds really well. I feel there are times he does not listen well, and prescribed me Lithium, when I am clearly not bi-polar. I am still dealing with the side effects of the meds months later. At the last visit when I had blood work done, he never gave me the results. The office staff is a mixed bag, there are some nice receptionists, and a few who can be downright rude. Compared to most of the other providers in the office, he is usually on time.
