Patient Comments (6)
Independence, LA |
She is horrible. I would call in with a problem, and her response was always "I don't know". She would call in a prescription for what she thinks it might be. You're not going to know what's going on if you don't ask the patient to come in. She would never have me to come into her office. I honestly don't think she cares. Listening and being nice alone does not make you a good Doctor. A good doctor is one who cares for the patient and wants to help. She didn't help me.

Dr Ruhe is wonderful. Now her office manager Larry is horrible,rude, and don't care about anybody. I have never experienced somebody so rude to talk to on the e phone till him. I remember my first time making a appointment he would not let me make a appointment without a credit card on file. Then after that he always question my insurance company I'm so sick of calling my ins company to ask questions for things he knows nothing about. He is horrible and doesn't speak clearly at all!!

Dr Ruhe is amazing! The only real problem is her office admin (I believe he is her husband). He is EXTREMELY rude!! Not sympathetic towards patients and possible problems they may be facing at all. Possibly the rudest man I've met.

The BEST GYN I have ever had. Easy to talk to, she listens and is calm. She made me feel at ease the very first visit. She calls you back herself with test results. Great Doctor !

First appt with a gyn in a while. She and her staff were very nice. Super friendly. Made me at ease. Fast. Easy to talk to. Highly recommended!!
Dr. Ruhe is a awesome doctor. She has a great bed manner. The only problem is her financial office worker. He is rude and doesn't work with you. He has no sympathy and is unapologetic how he treats patients.
