What People Say About Dr. Robert Ruelaz, MD
Reply
Attempted to confirm an appointment. The person on the other end of the phone was completely rude and instead of ending the conversation with "goodbye, or see you later or have a nice day" they just hung up. When I called back to address this, I was told that my appointment had been cancelled and I would need to find a new cardiologist. Never got in the front door, but maybe that's a good thing!!!

An excellent Doctor who is very skilled and knowledgeable in his field. He has performed two different cardiac procedures on me on two different occasions and I was extremely satisfied with the entire process and outcome. Truly a lifesaver!
