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 !
