I had the balloon sinus surgery and it did not work. Get a SECOND opinion.

Dr. Ruiz was able to help me with a chronic bloody nose. After the first visit the bleeding was much less but still bleed. After the second visit I have had no nose bleeds for several weeks.

Rude, condescending, has zero bedside manner. Will never go back!!

I have dealt with a lot of Physicians in my career and due to numerous health issues, but this doctor takes the cake. He is so arrogant. He gives you limited instructions, and then tells you you did it wrong. If you ask him a question, he thinks you are trying to challenge him! I always felt that he just wanted my money, and would say whatever he could to get you out of the office. He is very inconsistent in how he treats patients and his staff, depends on if he is having a good day.

Everything about this Doctor and the office, staff was completely unacceptable, misleading, and unprofessional! I would not recommend anyone to this office! They denied my insurance after accepting it during the office visit! My appointment was rescheduled a week later, do to an office staff mistake. My friend, warned me about, this office and Doctor. I tried them, because, they had the 1st appointment available, and I really needed to get it, due to a severe ear infection! Now I know why!!????

I first saw Dr. Ruiz 3 years ago. I returned again on 3-3-16. Upon arrival I was informed that I owed him 77.00. This was the first I had heard of it. In the 3 years in between visits, I had not heard from his office regarding any bill. I still live in the same place as I did 3 years ago. He refused to see me because I allegedly owed him money. I felt humiliated and hurt. I was in pain. I would not recommend him to a dog let alone a human. Money is more important to him
