I am a psychiatric nurse and Dr. Ruza has accepted some of the most difficult to treat geriatric patients. I have read some of the negative reviews and in the 20 plus years I have referred to him my patients have been happy with his care. He treats patients both in the hospital and in senior buildings

I have read all the reviews posted. I can tell you that our experience has been incredibly positive with Dr. Ruza and his staff. I have worked in the medical field for over 20 years and find him honest, direct and willing to listen and answer our questions. He originally took care of a family member that my husband and I are responsible for.. Due to insurance changes, we had to go to someone else. She stopped making progress after the new doctor changed her meds. After 4 years of trying to get her the best help, we returned to Dr. Ruza. We had lost hope for our family member. She started seeing Dr. Ruza in January of this year and has made unbelievable progress. He adjusted her medications and she is actually able to smile and laugh again. We are thrilled over the progress she has made, it wouldn't have happened without him. We are relieved because we are also getting our lives back due to her progress. I understand that experiences are different, but we are grateful for him.

I would not recommend him. Routinely prescribes strong anti-psychotic medications for nursing home patients, despite warnings that they are not to be used on the elderly with dementia, and can be fatal..
