Dr. Mario Ruiz has been a Godsend to our family since my wife Crystal had acute kidney failure in 2006. He walked, carried, provided encouragement and top notch care for her and gave me, Her husband a gratifying sense of peace of mind as we went through the dialysis process. A kidney came available for Crystal in 2009 and the transplant was a success and again having Dr. Ruiz by our side gave us so much peace of mind. He is THE Man! THANK YOU DR. M.!!!!!
