You will find tons of discussion on this topic with a quick search.

Generally speaking: A bunch of people have successfully patched a RFT tire when the puncture was well away from the sidewalls and they didn't drive on the tire while flat. The last bit is important since it damages the sidewall. Major tire chains and dealers will not patch RFT tires due to liability since they have no way to really know if the sidewall is damaged. You may have more success at small/independent tire shops.
