Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ruben "The human body has an infinite capacity to heal most wounds in three to five weeks. When a wound doesn't heal in that time frame, there are one or more underlying conditions inhibiting the healing process such as bad circulation, infection, edema, poor nutrition or the wound is suffering from repetitive trauma. We use hospital-level technologies in our outpatient setting to treat these underlying conditions and restore patients to a healthier life than they have ever known."

Dr. Ruben and his work are both the definition of excellence, expertise, care and compassion! He and his team,-specifically Kitty are beyond reproach!!! Dr. Ruben goes above and beyond all expectations to heal his patients and to educate and support families. I believe that there are no other physicians and facility that compare! Respectfully, Celeste

Thank You Dr. Ruben for helping me get my infection resolved. Dr. Ruben truly cares about each and every one of his patients. I am truly grateful to have my infection resolved. He was so helpful in a bad situation and helped see me three times a week. I know from experience it would take three months to see other infectious disesase doctors in the area, he helped me stay out of the hospital.

Dr Ruben helped me through the dire straits of my wound care.

I Nicknamed him the wizard. He was the only one that wanted to help me. After seeing 4 Doctors that did not know how to help me. I found Dr. Wizard on you tube and e-mailed him. Not only did he e-mail me back but he also tried to help. Not only did we find out some answer that I did have before but He was also able to send me to a bone Doctor. Dr. Wizard was very nice and kind as he helped me throught some anxiety I was having and helped us to understand what he thought was wrong.
