I will not rate Dr Runyon anything less than 5+ Stars!! He is the best Dr In the world...There is no question that he the man/ expert and wrote the book in internal medicine. The most amazing characteristic is that Dr R treats everyone regardless of wealth and severity as if they are the all equally important. He treats each individual as if they were the only one in the facility. He genuinely cares for every single patient that he treats!! Gratitude Dr Bruce, you are truly one of a kind!!
