Specialties

Dr. Frederick W Ruymann has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Competent & Friendly

All my colonoscopy procedures have been done by Dr Ruymann. All have gone without incident. I never felt rushed and always felt listened to when discussing my concerns with Dr Ruymann.

Terrible in re notifications and follow-upNo instructions about prep for procedure until the day of procedure. Notification of results incomplete, sometimes takes a month, sometimes no follow-up at all.The doctor is himself a good one, but doesn't take care of business.

Gastroperisis diagnosis

Dr Ruymann is excellent. I put alot of faith into bedside manner and his is phenomenal. I had been going to a doctor who basically sent me to test after test without taking the time to discuss the reasons why. In one discussion and test, Dr Ruymann diagnosed my situation and began treatment. I would highly reccomend him.

Medical Consultant

I was referred to Dr Ruymann from my PCP and did not have any bit of a good experience with him.He performed a procedure (colonscopy) to remove three polups. He diagnosed me with Diverticulosis (which I only discovered in a packet after I went home after the procedure). He did not mention anything to me or my wife. I even asked a nurse after the procedure if this was my diagnosis and she said "No".After all of that, it has been 3 months since the procedure and I have had blood in my stool since. I have contacted the office at least 5 times since and they have not followed up with me. Just don't know what else to say, but please do not use this doctor if you care about yourself!
