Review for Dr. Ruzek

The doctor was fantastic and the front desk girls - very sweet. But two other things left a huge impression on me. First, the cleanliness and organization of their office was impeccable. That's a rare sight in doctor offices. Also, I noticed them cleaning and sanitizing everything. I will be back.
