My wife and I met Dr Ruth Whitby in June 2017 for our annual medical check-up. We were very pleased with the attention she gave us, the empathy shown and the overall experience. My follow-up visit on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th October 2017, were equally pleasing.

The passion Dr. Whitby brings to her job is really representative of what an ideal doctor should look like. After my routine annual medical check, she scheduled another appointment to discuss results, and not just email me the results as has been the case in the past few years. She called the lab to ensure the results of my test were available when she met to discuss with me. She has challenged me to make some lifestyle changes and is committed to walk that journey with me. Simply brilliant! Please keep it up.

Dr Ruth Whitby has been looking after our family for the last few years and we had a splendid experience with her as she had been extremely friendly and has been available to us at all times including weekends and overseas holidays. Any time we called despite hours and dates she was always a reassuring voice at the other end. She had been able to refer us to specialists and investigations with skills and speed. Her personal persuasion had led me to the decision for my current surgery,which otherwise could have risky.. We wish her well.

Dr Whitby was thankfully very accommodating at very short notice. She portrays extreme professionalism throughout. Shes very thorough and has a "can do" attitude which I love and also keeps on top of things - looking over test results in great detail before drawing on conclusions and reaching out weeks after to check up on my health. Overall she has been a great medical consultant.

I am personally collected from the waiting room by Dr Ruth Whitby & greeted with a warm welcoming smile. My appointments are always on time and Dr Whitby listens to my concerns, investigates with appropriate searching questions then offers advice, medication where necessary and adds any lifestyle/dietary changes with which I can help myself. She is everything a Doctor should aspire to be in my opinion, reassuring, informative & enthusiastic about her work. I find her an exceptionally good, caring Doctor.

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.
