See this doctor if you wish to feel less than human.

Has the personality of a porcupine and while he may know how to read an x-ray he also knows how to do a good job at demeaning potential patients! He was rude, arrogant, called himself the "victim" because he was on my insurance plan when the last doctor I saw wasn't (that's why I had to find a new doctor). I will not go back to him. I am 68 years old and would rather walk around with a damaged hip then let him place his hands on me and I would never trust him in the operating room. He didn't care that I was in pain and basically came within one step of accusing me of being a drug addict even though I didn't ask him for any medication. My friend came with me to the appointment and she was madder than I was about Dr. Ruesch when we left. You risk any dignity you may have of being shredded when you see this individual.

Shoulder repair

Dr. Ruesch repaired my left shoulder several years ago. He performed an arthroscopic surgery and did the Bankart repair. I have three tiny scars and full mobility. He is a wonderful surgeon and I highly recommend him.
