" If one is looking for Big pharma Western medicine approach its great! I love the office the staff they got it down when it comes to service. Dr Ed is knowledgeable in his field, but when one is looking for natural medicine and not pharma this is not the way to go. Endocrinologist would tell you with thyroid it is a hormone and the body procss’s It differently for everyone, most specialist would do a high dose and back a person down so that they do not suffer. If you have never felt like you are swimming in mud then you have never dealt with a hypothyroid. I am different then most and I know my body, I know through trial and error what works and what does not. I thought Dr Ed being fit he must really understand the nutrition side of things etc. I really like him and I love his office but he is not for me. I have remained very healthy because I do my own research and try to be responsible for my own health , we are engaging on a life style change and dieting because we have lived a bit indulgent. I wish everyone well. "

I've been coming to your office for over 10 years, even when I lived out of the country I would come back each summer for my annual check-ups, etc. Now that I am back permanently it's a great feeling to have a physicians office that I can always rely on. I've even referred several of my friends to the Ruiz Family Practice knowing that they will get the same great treatment that I get with each visit. "

" I am new to the practice and this was my first appointment. I met with the nurse first weeks prior to my physical appointment with the doctor. She took my vitals, went through my medical history and sent me to get labs drawn so that all the results would be available for the doctor the day of my appointment. I really liked this because it means I'll get right down to business with the doctor on the day of my appointment. The nurse I met with was great!

" There was a short wait in the waiting room, but overall, it was much less than I have sometimes experienced in the past. Dr. Ed was understanding about my concerns and very good about explaining his diagnosis and recommendations clearly. My only negative comment is that he has a tendency to speak very fast, and I sometimes have trouble following what he is saying for that reason. "

" Didn't see the Doctor today. Was a first time visit and only saw the Nurse. "

 February 9, 2018

" Everything very good. I hadn't seen the Dr. in a couple of years so everything like last time. The only suggestions I have are more clarity on my insurance coverage. At first CVC said they couldn't cover my prescription because it was declined by my insurance co. Then I called the Dr. office to see what's up and they said they'.d call me back. They did call me but I'm not sure if I'll be reimbursed for out of pocket prescription costs or not. Second, the telephone person needs to speak more clearly and louder. "
