I was in his office yesterday for first time visit. VERY IMPRESSED with the set up , the employees that helped me get set up with information and etc. Dr. Ruiz was great. Kind and took time to explain to me everything he was going to do. The nurse was so professional and was kind and made me feel relaxed. I have been to Dr. That I have not been able to understand a word they said. Dr. Ruiz wasn't like that. His English was understood by this Alabama girl. Yea! I am so happy I found a great ENT
