Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Fantastic doctor
I have been seeing Dr. Ruda for years and I cannot say enough good things about my experience as her patient. She has a great bedside manner and always takes her time gathering all of the details to provide an informed perspective. I also greatly appreciate her respect and use of western and eastern treatments. Dr. Ruda has been by my side and helped me address several health challenges over the years - I have complete trust in her.

Dr. Ruda is kind, patient, and an excellent listener. She clearly cares about her patients and their well-being. Dr. Ruda takes the time to try to understand her patients holistically, and does a wonderful job explaining any recommendations for treatment. She has such a calming presence, and I’ve never felt rushed in her office. I have been fortunate to have had other good doctors over the years, but Dr. Ruda is far and away my favorite.

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.

Dr. Ruda is incredible, so calming, informative and really takes her time to explain what’s going on in your body. Now that she has switched to Advocate Health, there are ample appointments available again with her, so waiting time for an appointment is very little. (A friend I recommended just scheduled her first ever appt with her for next week, for example). You will not regret having her as your primary doctor— my husband and I both go to her. Life changing for sure.

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.
