We chose Mayo Clinic because of the quality of care we received in the past for various health issues. Dr. Ruzich was very thorough and consulted with other Mayo specialists who worked as a team to determine what course to take. He was genuinely concerned about my health.

Somewhat arrogant Mayo cardiologist. If you presented with an axe lodged in your head, he'd treat your heart.
