Specialties

Dr. Sonia M Ruiz has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Employees need to run!

I was referred to this office by my health insurance company. I was happy because the office is very close to where I live. I was greeted by the nicest girl she was amazing, really helped and made me feel welcomed I wish I remembered her name she has red hair. All of the girls at that office were extremely polite even offered my son some juice while we waited! When we got to the room I heard the doctor screaming at an employee and talking down to her, even as the employee tried explaining she had what she was looking for in her hands!! There was another family in front of that poor girl while she was being yelled at. Surprisingly she kept her cool and still managed to smile as we were leaving. The doctor was very abrupt when I asked her a question and talked to me as if I was an idiot. She was rude to the other girl that was giving me the prescriptions. I feel so sorry for them. I'm never going back.

Looks out for our children

Dr. Ruiz has been the pediatrician for our 3 kids all their lives and they love her. She's very experienced and really goes all out to take care of her patients. I credit her for saving my sons life and am eternally grateful. She is very prompt with answering after hours emergency calls. She WILL fight on your children's behalf with other professionals or the insurance company to ensure they get the treatment they need, and she will tell you like it is. She's tough when she needs to be, but she is also a deeply spiritual person.
