How likely are you to recommend Dr. Ruffolo?

(Select your rating)
I was transferred to Dr. Ruffolo from another Orthopedic Surgeon out of town. It was the best thing that could have happened. I had been waiting a year to get my left knee replaced, and was concerned about having to start over with him. No; he went over my chart and we began. His major concern was controlling my pain because I take pain meds. daily due to 5 back surgeries. He painted the worst possible senerio for my pain. I told him I would have to suffer thru it, the knee was crippling me. I could hardly walk on it using a cane. It would give out and I’d be getting up off the floor. This had to be corrected regardless of the pain. So he agreed to do it, and Ashlee got it scheduled. Well COVD-19 got it postponed 1 week before it was on the schedule. Finally on 6/3/20 it was done. I walking the next day. PT came to my home on 6/5/20. At my 2 week checkup he could not believe the range of motion I had back, and was on my regular pain meds. Less than 90 days I’m back to normal.
