Dr. Ruggles has been with Wisconsin Colon & Rectal Clinic since 2002.  He likes surgery because it requires knowledge, thinking and using one’s hands.  Dr. Ruggles enjoys taking a systematic, deliberate approach to patient care.  He tries to constantly remind himself to see things from his patients’ perspectives, in order to most appropriately help them feel better. During his time away from work, he likes to spend time with his family.  He enjoys biking with his children and jogging.  He is active as a Cub Scout leader.  He is most grateful to his wife for supporting him in his career.
