Ratings for Dr. D. Ruddock
This is my second (and probably final) baby having Dr. Ruddock as my OB, and can say I am still pleased with her as my Dr... Yes she is very busy (but what OB is not?) She does her best to accomodate all her patients I'm sure. From my experience, she always makes sure to check myself and baby thoroughly, asking how we are and if I have any questions- which I've had quite a bit and she answers each very well. I do not feel disatisfied when I leave for an appointment. There have definitely been improvements (staff wise. I know many have commented on the "rude" receptionist). For my first pregnancy (year 2015) I did notice the receptionist to be quite harsh and rather intimidating. But, as of 2017 there are two very nice receptionists. Punctuality wise, the wait is usually about 30 mins- 1hr depending how the day is going I guess. noticed that mornings are a lot quicker than afternoons. But in general these things require waiting considering all the patients that need to be seen, things to do, etc. Anyways, keep up the good work Dr. Ruddock and staff, and thank you!
I have not problems with her. She very good and come in greeting explain to you about your results. Most you here just love attention. You want e everyone to give you attention like some babysitting for you. She habe so many women's she looking after. If come with a bad a attitude you other to leave their jobs and come babysit you. The dr is good. Getover it and grow up. Women's been giving birth since Eva day.our day is all crazy women's who need so more attention like you are the only one who having child. Yes for her old was veey assistant rud. She no longer there.
I waited quite a while for my appointment with Dr Ruddock initially, but expected no different for an OB/GYN. I came prepared for a wait. I required day surgery and on the day of the surgery, I found her to be warm and she even rembered something I had said during the initial appointment. I felt she was reassuring and very competent.
Her receptionist/assistant is absolutely the worst! When I complained to Dr. Ruddock about her appalling treatment of patients in the waiting room, she shrugged it off and said it was because she was from Eastern Europe and the women from there are like that. Excuse me?! That's stereotyping of the worst kind. As for her treatment, she's always triple booked, so expect to wait at least an hour past your time in the waiting room. You spend maybe 5 minutes with her when you do get in. She and her staff were so inattentive I said to heck with it and refused to see her at all during my last trimester. I recommend finding a different OB. She's late, distracted, makes excuses, and doesn't put her patients interests first.
She was on call for my OB (Dr Palatnick) when i needed an emergency CS and looking at her she appeared tough and not the smiley face type but she was excellent, she made me feel safe during the surgery even with the high risks. She listens and pays attention even with the urgency. I am staying with my OB but she would be my next choice and I would recommend her.
