What Dr. Ruyle's Patients Are Saying

“Dr. Ruyle and staff have seen me for several years, they follow-up in a timely manner and are truly the best. We have recommended several patients. Keep up the good work! Simply put, Steve Braun is the best! It is obvious that he loves his job here at TUCC and the physicians. He explains the procedure very well and has gentle technique.”

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TUCC to anyone needing its services and thank you again for the care I received yesterday and in future visits.”

“I would like to let you know how much I appreciate Dr. Ruyle and what he has done for me and my family. Thanks to him, he has extended my life and there aren’t enough words to express my appreciation. Three years ago Dr. Ruyle removed my cancerous prostate with the da Vinci and my quality of life has never been better thanks to his incredible skill and knowledge. I can’t thank him enough for the care and compassion he gave me and continues to give me. Along with Dr. Ruyle, his nurse Hope (a truly fitting name for her) helped my wife and I get through the scary experience of cancer and continues to this day to be a warm and caring person to us. Thank you Hope! Thank you Dr. Ruyle! And thank you TUCC!”
