The history of OSF HealthCare and the commitment to the Mission is what attracted Dr. John Ruff to join the organization.
The Peoria native appreciates the size of the community, the activities and the people who live there.
As a podiatrist, Dr. Ruff likes the diversity of patients he sees – all age groups. “I care for simple problems to the very complex. I still have time for family and interests outside the office.”
“Every patient is different with their own special problems and needs,” he said. “Many times, I feel I’m more of a teacher explaining their problem and treatment plan so they have a thorough understanding of what I’m trying to accomplish.”
When he’s not working, Dr. Ruff enjoys running, golfing, reading and spending time with family. He is involved with the Boys and Girls Clubs, his church and state professional association. He and his wife, Mary, have been married since 1981. They have two sons – Jared is in nursing school and Jake is in practice with his father.
