07/06/14 5 5 4 3 Over rated & over priced. Clearly NOT worth the extra expense. Be your own advocate... Interview this man before you treat your loved one (please). He's VERY pompous... That will be your first clue. We should have gone to Sloan. Sloan the best reputation for many good reasons... Do your homework and good luck! This man is far from the best! Good Luck & God Bless!

25/06/13 5 5 5 5 Was treated with 6months of chemo after colon resection in Jan 2012. Dr. Ruggiero is the doctor you dream you would like to take care of you but in reality never find . I was one of the very lucky ones. He is the whole package. Kind caring takes the time to listen and so brilliant about his work you know you are in the best hands possible. My surgeons nurse advised me that is choosing your oncologist you need to be very comfortable because you will be in such a close relationship for 6 months it will be like a marriage. Thank you for that advice and was I lucky enough to find Dr.Ruggiero I am cancer free and ever so greatful a gift from God is the best way I can describe him.....
