A very professional and caring doctor that has helped me a lot over several years that I have known her. Dr. Whitby also has a good network of professionals that she can ​get access to in a short period. Also, I have to say a big thank you for not letting me overreact to smaller issues that I have encountered.

Ruth is a remarkable GP. Broadly trained but with an astute eye for holistic medical care, Ruth is also really good at managing the psychological penumbra. Patients I have referred are very happy with the care they have received from her.
