Dr Ruark is a very caring, kind, and understanding Dr. She explains everything , in terms you can understand. She will listen to you and all your needs. She cares so much for her patients, she called me on her day off just to check on me and asked if I understood everything about my surgery. The staff is so helpful and very informative. I was such a emotional wreck on my first appointment. After meeting with Dr. Ruark, Theresa and Tammy I knew I was in good hands.

Dear Dr. Ruark, I couldn't let the day go by without reaching out to thank you and your staff for the kindnesses and professionalism that you have demonstrated for me over the few months. I wanted to be sure to let you know how much it means to me to receive such terrific care. Everyone I've talked to in the Beaumont System has told me (unsolicited, I might add) that you are the best, or that you would be their surgeon of choice in my situation. Enjoy your day, JH
