Patient Experience with Dr. Ruud
This man told me ten years ago that I was not going to be able to survive more than 1-2 chemo treatments. Basically I would die. My Breast cancer was a triple negative, stage 2a, nuclear grade 3 .... I found another oncologist closer to home with a more positive attitude and here I am 10 years cancer free. His name Ruud fits him .... even the social worker could not believe what he said to me .... he even went to talk to Ruud and came back confirming what I had been told. Here I am Dr. Ruud face it you are NOT God! With God's help I have forgiven you. Everyone who reads this needs to know that NO MAN should ever take your hope.
