Marco Ruiz, MD chose his career in Family Medicine so he could focus on helping his patients with their overall health to lead longer, healthier lives using evidence-based medicine. He wants to build meaningful, genuine relationships with his patients and inspire them to take ownership of their own health as he teaches them how to make a big difference with the right tools.
Dr. Ruiz feels it is most important to educate his patients on the “why” when he prescribes treatment and care. He believes in complete transparency when it comes to healthcare decision making and always has his patients’ best interests at heart while treating them like his own family.
Dr. Ruiz grew up in a Southern, mid-sized town in Texas called Laredo and comfortably speaks Spanish. Outside of the office, he enjoys classical music, attending live concerts, playing the Marimba, hiking, traveling, and reading up on the latest technology advances. In college, he studied music alongside medicine and continues to keep music part of his daily life. Wherever possible, Dr. Ruiz likes to add humor into his life with good jokes and clever puns.
