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.

Dr Ruiz very easy to talk to. He listened to my questions and answered them in a manner that I could understand. He spend a lot of time with me. I didn't feel rushed. He told me my plan of care before I left the office.
