Thank You Dr. Ruben. I know that without his care I would have been in the hospital for a few days. He saw me more often than most infectious disease doctors while my infection was being resolved. With his help I was able to be seen the first day my infection came up, and cared for and resolved quickly!
I Nicknamed him the wizard. He was the only one that wanted to help me. After seeing 4 Doctors that did not know how to help me. I found Dr. Wizard on you tube and e-mailed him. Not only did he e-mail me back but he also tried to help. Not only did we find out some answer that I did have before but He was also able to send me to a bone Doctor. Dr. Wizard was very nice and kind as he helped me throught some anxiety I was having and helped us to understand what he thought was wrong.
