About Ruane Medical

Ruane Medical is dedicated to the research and cure of Hepatitis C. As we want to provide our patients with the most advanced technologies in health-care we invested in a FibroScan device as soon as it was approved by the FDA in April 5th 2013.


Ruane Medical is a small practice and a dedicated research center. You will find a family like atmosphere here, more relaxed than the usual hospital setting. Six members of our staff are trained and well versed in the FibroScan examination.


The practice and research is lead by Peter J. Ruane MD and Peter Wolfe MD.


Peter J Ruane MDDr. Peter Ruane earned his medical degree from University College Dublin and completed an internal medicine residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.


He completed a research and clinical fellowship in Infectious Diseases at the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration and is Board Certified in Infectious Disease.


During his 25 years of diagnosing and battling complex infections related to HIV and then mastering antiviral therapy as it became available, he developed a strong clinical trial research site helping evolve entirely new therapiesfor the major RNA virus diseases, first HIV and now Hepatitis C.


As treatments for Hepatitis C have rapidly evolved over the past 2 years, Dr Ruane has played a leadership role in Los Angeles bringing promising new agents in trials to patients in need across a large spectrum of patients including rich and poor, homeless, Egyptian immigrants and patients co-infected with HIV. Even with the approval of new drug therapies, he expects that still better treatment options will come rapidly through ongoing trials and most importantly, that all patients with Hepatitis C can be cured.


Recognized for his expertise in research in addition to clinical care, he has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings, and most recently presented results from an HCV trial in Genotype 4 patients at The Liver Meeting in 2013 in Washington DC.



Peter Wolfe MDDr. Peter Wolfe was born in Pittsburgh. He graduated from Harvard College cum laude in 1975 and the University of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine in 1979.  In that year he moved to Los Angeles for internship and residency at the VAMC West Los Angeles. 


He was selected as a Kennamer Fellow at UCLA for advanced post-residency training.  He is board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases. 


He has been an active investigator in the field of HIV since the beginning of the epidemic, having participated in many pivotal drug development studies.  He has been in private practice since 1986.  He continues to have teaching responsibilities as an Associate Clinical Professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
