General Practice (GP)
Ruth is a exceptional GP with all the requisite skills required; she is caring, organised, responsible, and an excellent communicator! She refers to the best experts when she feels necessary and I believe her patients have the best standards of care possible.
I have been looking after patients referred to be by Dr Whitby at the Wellington Hospital for over five years. She is an outstanding general practitioner with high level knowledge of general and specialist urology. She clearly cares greatly for her patients and provides an exceptional service for them.
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.
Dr Whitby is an excellent Clinician and Colleague. I highly recommend her to anyone
