Kind words from our patients

Very nice person, good professional, takes the time to listen to problem, to make a full assessment. Good experience!

A blessing to finally meet Dr Ruz in his private clinic in Rosemere! Hands of god!

I saw Dr. Ruz for an issue with varicose veins and I have to say, I am more then happy with the results of having “new legs”. Dr. Ruz was very helpful and polite, he also took the time to explain everything to me. It made me feel very confident and secure to be treated by him. A friend was also seen by him and was also very satisfied with her “new legs”. I would highly recommend Dr. Ruz!
