I first met Dr. Ruff back in 2009. I was 7 ½ months pregnant and had been referred to him by my OBGYN. I was having some issues with my asthma, and needed someone who would help me for the long run not just this one instance. Dr. Ruff, took me under his wing and made sure that I had everything I needed and that my baby was going to be okay as well. I will never forget how calming he was during this very stressful time in my life. Since then, Dr. Ruff has been treating me as my primary care doctor and I feel like for the first time in my life, someone is really helping me, take care of me. When Dr. Ruff was leaving to join MDVIP I was worried because of the financial piece, but he reassured me that all would be okay. Not only does he have more time for his patients, he really takes such incredible care of each person in his practice. Dr. Ruff does not rush you and he makes you feel like you matter and are important. My son, now almost 5 years old has joined me on a few visits to the doctors office and I have to say, Dr. Ruff is so kind and answers all of the curious questions my son asks. This means so much to me. I have had asthma for most of my life, and for the first time, I feel like I am under control. SO THANK YOU Dr. Ruff for all that you do each day to make sure we your patients are taken care of.

We have both learned about more healthful life styles through Dr. Ruff's teaching us about nutrition, exercise, diabetes, and a restful night's sleep - all good benefits for the purpose of aging gracefully. We also appreciate his hospital visits - very important for continuity of care and the healing process. thank you Dr. Ruff,

I feel very lucky to have Dr. Roy Ruff for a doctor. Fortunately, I don't have too many health problems but when I do, it's easy to get through to him. He's genuinely concerned about anything I'm dealing with, gives me time to talk it out and he makes sure regular tests are run to keep me functioning and on the right track. I'm looking forward to attending some of the classes he offers. I'm very appreciative of his good care and wish him a Very Happy National Doctors' Day! Thank you, Dr. Ruff!

Exceptional medical care and concern while being treated for an aggressive cat bite infection. Dr. Ruff cautioned that the normal protocol for treatment might not be effective and that if improvement was not evident I should contact him whenever that became apparent. Accordingly I contacted him on his cell phone late on a Saturday morning. Within two hours he had coordinated my admission to the hospital and scheduled a consult with an infectious disease specialist. I arrived at the hospital and all admissions related matters had already been addressed. Dr.Ruff coordinated my care with both the infectious disease specialist and the orthopedic surgeon who ultimately was called upon to drain the abscess. Thank you Dr. Ruff.
