Carmina and Gerard “JR” Ruzzo are sweethearts who have been married for 62 years, and they do almost everything together—including going to Oak Street Health.
A network of primary care centers for adults on Medicare, Oak Street Health recently opened three Rhode Island locations in collaboration with BCBSRI. Carmina and JR both feel the same way about their Oak Street Health experience—they couldn’t be happier.
"The doctors spend so much time with you and ask a lot of questions," said JR. "I feel a lot better since coming here."
Since Carmina and JR don't have a car, they were thrilled that Oak Street Health offers transportation for eligible patients. "Our drivers are marvelous," said Carmina. "All the people at Oak Street are wonderful. And the space is beautiful."
JR summed up their experience: "We can't imagine ever going anywhere else. I recommend Oak Street 100%. I'm so happy we found this place."
