I really like this doctor he is really nice and always tells me everything I need to know. I just don’t like how he schedules to see me every month and I’m a high risk pregnancy patient. And I don’t like that he doesn’t preform ultrasounds on me and I can never get to take a picture to my boyfriend

Dr. Rurangirwa is one of the best doctors I’ve had the pleasure of consulting with. From just my first visit I can truly say he is very attentive and caring of his patients. I didn’t feel rushed throughout the entire visit he made me feel so welcomed and explained every detail. His nurse Isis is the sweetest person ever I felt quite nervous going to a different physician, but she made me feel so welcomed since the beginning of the visit. Great staff and really prompt in their appointments I went in to see the doctor 5 minutes after my appointment time which is amazing! I will definitely be staying with Dr. Rurangirwa!
