Indio, CA |
Excellent doctor, listen and cares for its patients.
La Quinta, CA |
Very poor at following through with giving you results of tests and refilling RX require another visit so they can charge medicare!!!
San Clemente, CA |
The front desk staff are rude and unwelcoming while the dr herself is a heartless, uncaring robot that is obviously more interested in money than her patients whom she treats like burdens. I would highly recommend choosing a different healthcare provider.

My 5yr. old boy went in for a mole removal. Dr. Erica Ruiz put him at ease from the minute she walked in the room. She was awesome, she made it quick and nearly painless.

I personally recommend Dr. Erica. She is professional, efficient, caring, & kind. She addressed all my medical concerns & was able to perform some of my tests in her office. The staff is friendly & courteous. Thank you, Savanna

Been going to. Dr. Ruiz for 10 years. She and her husband are both great people. We don't al ways agree, but she's patient and talks to you. So she works. With what I want at first, then we do it her way. I think she's great and only once in all these years have I had an issue with staff
in Palm Desert, CA |
She is disrespectful to patients and doesn't listen. She is disrespectful to other professionals and puts them down. No matter what the patient says, she tells them they are wrong .
in La Quinta, CA |
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Erika Ruiz! She has been a caring, proactive family doctor to me for approximately 7 years. Her office manager, Irma, has been extremely responsive to any issues to both my husband and me.

I would be easier to communicate with the Wizard of Oz! The worst staff. Frightening that anyone's health is in this office's trust.
in Indio, CA |
Office staff is horrendous! It takes 5-6 calls to get anyone to call back. Getting a referral is next to impossible. Dr. Ruiz is wonderful and that's the only reason I keep coming back but I'm starting to reconsider this.
