Reviews & RatingsReviews & Rating for Dr. Ruttenberg, MD
Avoid this doctor at all cost. Dr. Alan Ruttenberg over-medicated me for 12 years. He failed to warn me that the medication he was giving me could cause diabetes, and other debilitating diseases like Tardive Dyskinesia. I complained to him about my hair falling out and other painful side effects and he dismissed my symptoms as due to something else. I went to see other doctors for second opinions. One endocrinologist even called him to say that he should get me off the medication, and he was still resistant. One day, I saw a segment on the news that doctors were over-prescribing this medication and were being paid by AstraZeneca under the table to push this drug. I told Dr. Ruttenberg about what I saw on the news and he admitted to me, "you know what, you don't need this medication anymore." The withdrawing was terrible (the worst headaches of my life) and to this day I have permanent health problems due to this.
