Dr. Restituto S Ruiz Jr has the following 2 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- General Practice
A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Restituto S Ruiz Jr - Posted on January 31st, 2017
I went to the emergency room at UAMS were heven was the attending ER physician, 6 weeks after surgery on a Sunday, I was afraid I had damaged something,because I was having deep abdominal pains. He did not even see me, sent the nurse to tell me there was nothing they could do but give me pain meds. I DID NOT WANT PAIN MEDS -I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG, not a good doctor in my opinion just a pain medication distributor !
An arrogant jerk

Went in with severe back and chest pain and difficulty breathing. Diagnosed before I finished telling what all was going "panic attack". Was rude and arrogant. When questioning his diagnosis got in my face and said "Are YOU a doctor". I left and went somewhere else and they said I had bronchitis. His "anxiety" and "panic attack" diagnosis seems to be his diagnosis for anything. He now practices in a small town in Arkansas after bouncing around everywhere else.
