This test was my first overseas checkup despite the fact that I am quite well traveled. i had lots of apprehension and some anxiety, not really knowing what to expect and not sure how I would be received or treated. After meeting Dr Whitby, all my fears were allayed as she immediately removed my anxiety and made me feel at ease. This was sustained until my last contact with her on Friday 14th. I look forward to seeing her again if the opportunity presents itself.

Ruth Whitby has been our doctor for more than 10 years and we have always found Ruth to be more than a doctor without crossing the professional line. She is vary caring about our overall wellbeing and not just the problem we are taking to her at that time. We are always able to see her when we need to see her and do not have to wait for an appointment. She is proactive rather than reactive and we have received compliments from specialists (not always referred by Ruth) on the way she takes care and shows a genuine interest in her patients, which is something that don't normally see. We would be lost without Ruth as our doctor.

I have been seeing Dr. Ruth Whitby for over 2 years now. She is an outstanding doctor with extraordinary knowledge in and around her field of work. She has helped and guided me through every single problem/illness/worry I have encountered. No worry or thought has been neglected in the time that I have known her and I really feel she has taken time to understand me as a person and not just a patient. She has gone and still goes above and beyond her remit to ensure that I am in good health at all times and never forget to check up on me. Best doctor in London!

I came to Dr Whitby when I was at a very low ebb and at risk to myself. Her care, her understanding, the sense of safety she provided, explanation of my situation and the medical intervention she proposed, gave me the means to recover. She has great perception, sensitivity and humanity, and in my experience, her dedication goes above and beyond.

I have been a patient of Dr Whitby for many years. Dr Whitby is not only a highly qualified and very sympathetic doctor, she is also a very patient and attentive listener. Both my husband and I feel well understood by her and in safe hands. Whenever the need arose to see a specialist she has always referred us to the best people and was able to arrange to be seen very quickly. I can recommend Dr Whitby as a very caring and conscientious family doctor.

A kind, thorough and gentle professional who always goes out of her way to make sure her patients are comfortable. My daughter used to dread going to the doctor, especially for blood tests; however, she is always at ease when she knows she is going to see Dr Ruth and feels calm and relaxed. She is extremely kindhearted and always has her patients best interests at heart. Highly recommended!

She takes the time to listen to you as a patient, and discusses a range of treatment options in context- the opposite of "here, take this, come back if it doesn't work" - building a trusting relationship with patients .She is up to date on developments in drug and other therapies so you know you are getting the best advice.

We are at a loss for words to express how extremely impressed we were with your entire staff, the hospital system and care that my husband was given. From the moment we contacted you, through our visit- we were simply amazed that you would take the time to really dig into his health. The follow up as well is just amazing. Thank you so very much.
