My mother in law went to him many years ago.. The last surgery (was suppose to replace a shunt) he decided to pull the old one out that was attached.. Later that day he told us he pulled the shunt and brain tissue (gray matter) was still attached. His nurse looked at me wide eyed like she couldn't believe he just told me that. My mother in law never pulled out of ICU and died within 10 days. He writes over his records so no can press charges.. Please do not go to him, he is only out for money..
The first time I met Dr. Ruiz was in the hospital. I had suffered with low back pain for years and finally had to be admitted due to weakness in my legs. He was so nice and very smart. It took him less than 5 minutes to diagnose my problem of "degenerative disc disease". He offered conservative measures before surgery and the following day I was scheduled for an epidural block. Upon follow up, the decision was made to proceed with surgery and no doubt I made the right choice in both having the surgery and with the surgeon.
