I was really disappointed in my visit with Dr Ruby. Although she was very diligent with her questions and communication,I felt quite judged by her in regard to my birth control and other medication I take, among a few other issues. Even though I was the first appointment of the day and I was very late to work. The rest of the staff was great. During the exam, Dr Ruby didn’t explain what was happening or what her next move was so I was very uncomfortable during the exam. I was very tense as a result of not know what was happening, which resulting in a more painful exam. Although I do think she had good intentions, I won’t be returning as I felt like I was being judged for my personal medication decisions, extensive appointment time, and general feeling of discomfort during the appointment.

If you are looking for a doctor who takes the time to sit down and discuss your health history and lifestyle factors I would recommend Dr. Ruby. Personalized attention and follow-ups is the focus - you will not get a patient portal login or electronic filing access here. She carefully explained her care strategy and I am glad I chose this practice.

Mostly my issue was with wait times. I was waiting before the appointment, then once I was in the office, then again before the exam. What I anticipated being a 45-60 min appointment ended up being about 2 hours. It ended up causing problems with my work day. My next issue was that though Dr. Ruby was pleasant, thorough, and seemed knowledgeable, she was the first gynecologist in 25 years who did not tell me what she was going to be doing before she did it. At this point, I see this as standard procedure so I was very much taken off-guard when she began examining me without a "ok, now I'm going to...you will feel this..." As a patient, I ended up feeling a little dehumanized by it afterward.

Dr. Ruby is the OB/GYN I've always been looking for! She is thorough, and very knowledgable. I felt listened to, and it was clear that she really wanted to understand what was going on so that she had a picture of my health history and concerns. This may not be a big deal, but I really appreciated the fact that I met her in her office first before having an exam. I had a morning appointment and had no wait time.

My appointment with Dr. Ruby was the best I have ever experienced with any doctor in my adult life, no exaggeration. It just so happened that her manner was completely compatible with my personality, so I understand that she might not be for everyone. I found her to be friendly, optimistic, conversational, nonjudgemental, and most importantly very knowledgable. She conducted the intake herself, rather than delegating to an assistant, and spent time just talking with me, taking notes. I preferred the casual pace of the appointment, but it also went over by about 30 minutes, so I couldn't have done it on my lunch break, for example. The address listed for her office is the front door of the building, but the entrance you need to go through is on the west side, a little confusing. The staff doing the labs and paperwork seemed less engaged than the doctor, but no real complaint, they were just busy, bored, or both. It seems like it would be difficult to keep pace with Dr. Ruby, but I certainly appreciated her enthusiasm.

I cannot begin to describe how excellent Dr. Ruby and her staff are. They are friendly, efficient, and knowledgable. It's so important to have a doctor who takes the time to listen to your concerns and Dr. Ruby does just that. Prior to even having an exam she discusses your medical history and any of your concerns. She then completes a thorough examination. It's obvious that she cares about your overall health and well being. I would highly reccomended her to anyone.

I was searching for a new ob/gyn because my former md retired. Dr. Ruby is refreshingly conversant in a professional manner. She explains as she goes and sums up at the end of the visit. She avoids medical jargon and is clear and concise without being hurried or abrupt. Her medical opinions were consistent with prior md opinions and she has a preference for minimizing rather maximizing treatment in noncritical cases. In other words, she does not over medicate.
