It’s Your Life… Live it in Health!
“There are so many wonderful things to convey about her… I will start with her professionalism and personable qualities combined…. Most of us do not like to go to the “doctor” but, this is just a wonderful experience…!
I also work in health care. I was referred to Dr. Ruby through Workers Compensation, yes, a “work comp” Doctor! and it was one of the best days of my life! :) I had fallen off a chair at work and fractured my tailbone and injured my wrist, head, back and neck. Needless to say, with all the injuries I was a mess. I say “was” because I am great now. Doc Ruby is one of the most thorough Chiropractors I know. She is compassionate and knowledgeable and always there to help. She loves her work, it shows in her attitude…
I have no reservations about recommending Dr. Ruby to anyone, with the utmost of confidence…. Her office is always full of grateful patients and it’s kind of like visiting home when you are there…Try it! You will be eternally grateful as I am.”
