As a member of our OHC physician team, Dr. Ruehlman has full access to the OHC Clinical Trial research program.
We encourage our patients to discuss all of their healthcare options — including Clinical Trial research programs — with their doctor.
The following are recent reviews provided by actual OHC patients:
"Dr. Ruehlman has been my oncologist through two cancers. Colon cancer in 1997 followed by surgery, then chemotherapy. Dr. Ruehlman cared for me for 5 years. I was blessed to have him. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2008. I asked for Dr. Ruehlman to see me through this one also. I now will see him once a year. If I face cancer, God forbid, again, I know Dr. Ruehlman would be my doctor. He is #1 in my book."
"Medicine made a huge impact - cancer gone. While I became allergic to two kinds of chemotherapy, Dr. Ruehlman switched me to just medicine - the perfect cure. Great results, the right doctor!"
"Dr. Ruehlman was extremely cautious and thorough in his diagnosis and was 'right on' with his prescribed procedures to get me cancer free. The chemo nurses and staff were always friendly, up-beat, and made me feel like I was with family during my treatments."
