Simply the best Doctor I have ever had, and I have had tons. Dr. Ruiz is the most knowledgeable, caring, and proficient specialist I have ever encountered. That coupled with his superb bedside manner and great sense of humor (when appropriate) make him a joy to work with. I honestly feel that I am receiving the best possible care and plan on continuing with his outstanding care for as long as I can, Perhaps the best doctor ever.

I have been seeing Dr Ruiz approximately 8 or 9 years and think he is the greatest. He listens to what I have to say, always shows me my numbers on the computer and is an all around good guy. Would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone with kidney problems.
