About Me

Hello! My name is Jose Ruiz. I’ve worked as an internist for Kaiser Permanente since 2007.


I grew up in Cerritos where I attended Cerritos High School. After graduation, I attended UCLA for medical school and then moved on to USC for my residency. I have two loving parents, and four brothers and sisters. Family is important to me, so I do my best to treat members as if they were my own relatives.

About my practice

I’m employed as a hospitalist at Kaiser Permanente in Downey. As a hospitalist, I perform rounds on hospitalized members and help coordinate consultations with other specialists in order to get those members well enough to go home.

How I thrive

I stay balanced by spending time with family and my dog, practicing my faith, and working on cars. I try to keep healthy by running, lifting weights, and avoiding fast food. If I ever have the privilege of taking care of you, please consider me a friend, and someone who is here to serve you.
