Worst experience ever. Came here for annual check up and was referred to do blood work. Never heard back from this office nor get my test result back. 2 months later I followed up with them and doctor claimed she wasreviewing my report, then never heard from her again. Horrible.

Dr. Ruvini was very easy to talk to and was my appointment was overall pleasant. However, there were a few areas I think could improve. Firstly, the consultation was interrupted by a phone call from the receptionist that didn’t seem veryurgent. Secondly, the office is not able to accommodate lab work so patients are referred to a different location, which is an inconvenience and took me by surprise as I wasn’t given advance notice. Thirdly, the annual physical could have been more thorough - when I mentioned some concerns about my health Dr. Ruvini just recommended very general things such as OTC cream and instagram accounts.

Listens to your concerns. Puts herself in the shoes of the patient. Shares a direct email address you can reach her with questions. Great bedside manner and personality. Would see her again. Reception staff was friendly as well.

The office wasn't open by the time I got there, but it became open quite quickly right after. It took the front desk 5 minutes to start the paperwork and then by 10 past I was in and seeing the doctor. It's slightly not ok.
