Bright, personable, and effective. Dr. Ruiz listens, asks the important questions, and takes the action needed to help resolve any medical issue you are facing. If referral to a specialist makes sense, he knows the best ones for your situation. He has been my family Dr. for a number of years and I trust him completely.

Overland Park, KS |
In a time when healthcare providers try getting patients in and out as quickly as possible, Dr. Ruiz applies a more traditional approach to medical care. He takes the time to understand the patient's needs and truly cares about and for his patients. Follow up from his team is prompt and thorough and he and his team instill confidence in their ability to provide the highest level of care.

Our entire family of five have been patients for many years now. We are completely satisfied. Dr. Ruiz found cancer in me early enough to take care of it, and I am now cancer free. I am so grateful for his wisdom and care.
