Lee, Gadsden,AL;; I've had 2 neck surgery's, one are and one hand worked on, I will not go any where else. The last neck I was in recovery and sitting up in the bed, the look on his face was very funny, he said " why are you up, you should still be out of it". Took the brace off and went home the next day Ms. Carla is also great, she can explain things as well as he can. Just a great place and great staff, never had a problem. Would and have Recommended him to a lot of people.

Dr.Ruiz has seen me in the office 4 times out of 15.times just to explain procedures and he was gone again. He is always in a hurry. It's as if my questions and concerns are not important. His assistant however has seen me answered my calls and reassured me when I felt he cared less. Unfortunately for me no one else will touch me and they tell me to see the surgeon who did my "surgery". I have had complication after complication. I should have had a second opinion from another surgeon.

DR Ruiz came into the waiting room with a model of a human spinal cord, he began to tell me what was going wrong in my lower spinal cord. He told me how he would fix my problem and then he told me why he would do it that way. With in 2 mos after surgery I have no pain in my leg's nor my back as I did before surgery . I feel better now than I have in the past 6 year's. I would highly recommend DR Ruiz. There is not enough space here to tell how great my life has changed because of DR Ruiz
