I had high expectations for Dr. Ruda and ended up having one of the more traumatizing experiences I've had with a doctor. From the get-go, I felt that I was rushed through the appointments. At our first appointment, I was told that because the initial intake process took a long time, she was behind schedule and had kept others waiting. This was said to me with a glare as if it was my fault; I was not deliberately "slow" and I had technically "arrived" (remotely) on time without knowing how long the intake process would take. Later on in another visit she cut me off with "I'm just going to fast forward you here..." I wasn't rambling, I was just talking. I asked about getting tested for a common mental health disorder; she responded rudely, "Why do you want to be tested if we're already treating the symptoms?" I did not feel heard or seen by Dr. Ruda and instead got VERY strong vibes that she just did not like me. I will not forget how ashamed and belittled she made me feel.

Former Patient – Feb 09, 2021
Dr. Ruda is a wonderful doctor who really takes her time to explain every detail when you visit her, and she has a very calming presence. However, it is almost impossible to get an appointment with her even if you are an established patient. I have had three instances this year where I've tried to schedule an appointment for a couple of different health concerns, and each time was told she was unavailable for the week and to see urgent care. Unfortunately, even with my insurance urgent care costs are expensive. I'm sad to say that I've had to leave Dr. Ruda and search for another doctor for my primary care, but it is ridiculous that she has very little availability.

Dr. Ruda is a very thorough Dr. She always made sure I understood what procedures were done and why they were done. She explained things until I fully understood. She also was very thorough with my daughters who dreaded going to the Dr. She made them feel comfortable and at ease and spoke to them like they had common sense. I would definitely recommend her to everyone.
