What Our Patients Are Saying: Hematology and Oncology
I have been Dr. Ruan’s patient for 5 years, since I was diagnosed with lymphoma. I was first impressed at her ability to explain complex, scientific information so that I could easily understand my condition and diagnosis. She’s easy to speak with and I feel confident that I’m receiving the best care possible. I’m in remission and definitely give her the credit.Margaret A. MooreSource:Healthgrades

"There are no words to explain how I feel about the treatment I received from Dr Ruan and NY Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Hospital. From my very first appointment she gave me and my family confidence and hope. She explained and answered every question I had in terms I could easily understand. I traveled the 60 miles for her care as the treatment I required was not available where I lived and I am thankful I did. Within days of my first visit she had me diagnosed and in treatment. I strongly believe her diagnosis and treatment choice is the reason I am here writing this today."
