Dr. Audrius Ruksenas, MD
Dr. Ruksenas was born in Vilnius, Lithuania and been an Ohio resident since 1996. He graduated from Medical School of Vilnius University (the Second Oldest University in Easter Europe; can you guess the oldest?) and trained in Internal Medicine residency at Jewish Hospital 1996-1999, currently in practice focused on post-acute rehabilitation and elderly patient care. Dr. Ruksenas started working with NHCR in 2018. From the first day he was very impressed with NHCR’s staff – energetic, positive, curious, professional people. To keep the mind and body in good balance, he tries to adhere to formal recommendations of daily physical activity (even if not exactly the amount of hours and days)– via variety of non-contact sports, suitable for over 50 crowd, – bicycling, volleyball, badminton, hiking. If any time is left, he enjoys “rewatchables” – current classic movies that one can watch multiple times and find something new each time.
“Clinical research allows a glimpse into medical innovations and the future of medicine. My interactions with NHCR staff and our patients turned out to be what I call “The Bright side of medicine” – the opposite of frequently monotonous and bureaucratic current day physicians’ routine. I enjoy being able contribute my share of medical knowledge and clinical experience to the already excellent team at NHCR.”
