So far so good! Each time I've been to the office they've managed to see me within minutes. I can't stand having an appointment somewhere only to arrive and wait as if I was a walk-in. At this office an appointmentmeans you have a time to be seen and they honor that, and that's amazing! Dr. Ruiz takes his time when he sees me, is thorough in his assessment of the test results and develops a strategy for navigating concerns. The office environment is very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the overall experience is the way it should be. I highly recommend this office.

This was the first time I went to a doctor's appointment, having already completed the extensive paperwork, and the office seemed ready to see me. I completed the paperwork the day before the appointment and emailed it in. The office staffhad my file and were ready for me to see the doctor. I finally felt as though the doing the paperwork ahead of time and actually showing up on time for my appointment wasn't a complete a waste of time! The good doctor was able to see me quickly. We went over my health history and he ordered some wellness tests. I was out the door in less than a half-an-hour. I think in my nearly 42 years that's a first. The outcome of the tests he ordered will determine if and how often I will need to see him, however I'm confident I'm in good hands and that future diagnosis and treatments will be handled competently.

Dr. Camilo is an amazing doctor. He never rushes you out the door and he is willing to answer one or 100 questions. He honestly cares about his patients and their well being. I would recommend him 100%. I wouldn't drive35 miles for a primary doctor unless he was worth it. Extra bonus he is extremely easy on the eyes.

I do not normally leave ratings. But my experience at Dr. Ruiz's office was wonderful. I have a spinal cord injury, so I have seen my fair share of doctors... Which, unfortunately is often a disappointing experience. Dr. Ruiz and hislovely nurse staff are truly people who care about their patient. He, as well as his nurses were extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and able to answer all of my questions. I'm so glad to have finally found a doctor's office that cares and a DO I Trust.

Today was the first time in a while that I had the chance to get a checkup and to talk a little about my health. The staff is absolutely fantastic, I arrived a bit earlier than my appointment in case Ineeded to do extra paperwork. I was greeted right away, checked in, and seen very quickly. I have Crohn's so I needed a gastroenterologist recommended and they had one who was highly rated. Overall a great experience. Looking forward to keeping healthy with this wonderful group.

This was my first appointment with the Doctor. He came in, sat down and just asked questions about myself and my medical needs. He took as much time as I needed. I then had blood drawn which is so much nicerthan having to go and sit and wait at Lab Corp. Everyone at this office is extremely nice.
