I really appreciate the fact that he takes as much time as needed for every appointment. I am always treated with such kindness and respect.

“Dr. Michael Ruccio and his receptionist Debbie have always made every appointment a pleasure. Dr. Ruccio spends as much time as needed for me to walk out of the office satisfied with the way I am hearing. He is always offering suggestions as to what would help in the care and maintenance of my hearing aids. He is extremely patient and understanding when I try to relay what difficulties I am having with my hearing problems. Debbie always seems to find an appointment time at or near what I request. I would most definitely recommend this office very highly. And for those on Staten island, if there is no parking in front of their building there is a lovely parking lot right next to it. Parking is never a problem to see Dr. Ruccio.”
