MEDICAL EXPERT & CONSULTANT
Hi! My name is Tiffany Sizemore-Ruiz. I am a cardiologist and I absolutely love what I do (no, really!). Although I take my career very seriously, I believe that healthcare still deserves some humor and humility. More than anything, I believe that if you treat patients the way you would your family, you can’t go wrong.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychobiology from Florida Atlantic University at 19 years old. I then went on to become the youngest graduate from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I am quadruple board certified in cardiology, internal medicine, nuclear cardiology and echocardiography. My true passion lies in helping people to achieve their health goals in a preventative nature. I enjoy educating the public about health, nutrition and disease prevention. I have been quoted in published books on nutrition and weight loss, as well as quoted on HuffingtonPost.com, Shape.com, Yahoo News and spoken publicly about women’s health for various events. I have become a regular on national news outlets as a medical expert on various topics. I am honored to be able to serve as a “voice” on national media as I can reach millions of people at once. Prevention of disease is extraordinarily important to me.
In addition to my private practice and work with media outlets, I serve as a medical consultant for law firms for medical malpractice cases and product liability cases. I am able to offer a unique outlook for these cases, saving law firms time and money when the time comes to “sift through” tedious amounts of medical records. Consider me a liaison between the client and the attorney. I currently work with David Di Pietro and Associates in Fort Lauderale as an on-site medical advisor.
I try to give back to my community as much as I can. I was involved with the local American Heart association from 2012- 2017 and am the Past President of the Board of Directors for the American Heart and American Stroke Association of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. I was honored with being selected as one of Gold Coast’s magazines Top 40 People Under 40 for 2013 and was named a “Top Doc in Concierge Medicine” for the past several years. Quite possibly my favorite achievement was being named a “Distinguished Clinician” by the Board of Commissioners of Broward Health because this award recognized clinical excellence and dedication to patient care, two things that are the utmost importance to me. In 2016, I was named as one of Broward County’s Top 100 Outstanding Women.
I live my life by three rules:
1. You’re never too important to be nice to people.
2. If you can’t be kind, be quiet.
3. Do no harm, but take no crap. 🙂

I started seeing Dr. T as my primary care doctor about a year ago after moving to S. FL from Dallas. She is an outstanding physician and her straightforward nature, time-spent with me each visit, and the fact that she treats me like a friend will keep me as a patient as long as I live here. I always feel like I have a smart plan for my health when I leave her office and always have a follow-up to keep my plan in-check. Mara & Karina are also outstanding support staff and the office is immaculate and inviting. Dr. T is top-notch and a fantastic forward-thinking doctor.
Starting with my first phone call when an actual person answered…and since, I’ve spoken to a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff, namely Karina and Mara. They are actually happy to see you! In the past, I’ve always taken reading material to occupy my waiting time. Not here! They honor appointments, imagine that. Dr. Tiffany is easy to talk to, not rushed and explains things in layman’s terms. 5 stars are not enough!
Doctor Sizemore-Ruiz is one of the most incredible doctors I’ve had the pleasure of ever meeting. She is not only absolutely incredible at her job but she is a true people person. She makes you feel like a human instead of just some patient. I would definitely recommend her and her office anytime. I’m so happy that I’ve had the pleasure of being able to find her!
Finally! A doctor that actually listens and cares. To start, Dr. Sizemore and her staff have created a welcoming stress-free environment. You do not feel like you are visiting a stuffy doctors office where everyone is rude and rushing you. You are greeted by friendly faces and treated with kindness and compassion. Dr. Sizemore is such a pleasure. I have never felt so comfortable with any doctor before. She is knowledgeable, caring, patient, and committed to spending time with you. I believe her to be top notch in her profession and would recommend her to everyone. Huge thank you to Dr.Sizemore and her whole staff!
Dr. Tiffany is one of the best Doctors in the area. Being one myself, I know what good service is when I see it. She is extremely knowledgeable, and very thorough. If more doctors followed her philosophy we would all be better off. Amazing looking office as well and a very friendly staff. I HIGHLY recommend this office if you are looking for great quality care!
Dr. Sizemore presents a logical, but practical approach to her practice. Her advice is solid and she presents all of the information necessary to understand what is necessary to better health. Dr Sizemore is very knowledgeable and her confidence is awesome.
Lucky for me Dr. Tiffany was assigned to be the primary doctor overseeing my case when I arrived at the emergency room with no heartbeat at all. Today is my birthday, a birthday I would not be having the opportunity to celebrate if not for her. After spending an entire month in the hospital under her care I can say without the slightest bit of hesitation that her intelligent and concise mind, her can do no non-sense attitude, and her utter vigilance makes for an absolutely amazing doctor and human being. I would never trust my heart and health in any other hands given the choice.
Dr. T provides exceptional, personalized care. I have never felt rushed in her office. My questions are always answered and I leave feeling as if my health is her number one priority. I am confident that with her as my cardiologist, my heart is in the best hands.
The best! Nothing better than Dr. T, a smart, confident doctor who knows her stuff and always makes the time for her patients.
I’m very lucky to have my doctor so close by that I trust implicitly.
