A. Ruben Caride, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

It's time to get healthier!

Medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient - a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have more time to develop close and personal relationships with my patients and carefully review records and perform comprehensive exams. As your private doctor, we can work together as a team and formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your health goals. There are no short cuts to good health and no simple formulas or “one-size-fits-all” approaches when it comes to practicing good medicine. My concierge-like medical practice gives me the time and tools to help you reach your wellness goals, and together, we can work to make a happy, healthy future your reality.

With nearly 25 years practicing in the community, I have relationships with many specialists to help you with your unique needs. I may be your primary care internal medicine physician, but I also have interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and preventive medicine. My internal medicine practice currently serves all of greater Miami including Key Biscayne, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Brickell/Downtown Miami and Coconut Grove. I am an attending physician at Baptist Health of Miami (South Florida), and was named one of the Best Doctors in America® 2005-2014. I also speak Spanish.
