I have been a patient of Dr. Ruby since Nov 2006. I am diabetic and my case management has always been excellent to outstanding but about a year ago my A1C started to go up and I was having some difficulty controlling my glucose level - felt that I was developing some amount of insulin resistance, so last December Dr. Ruby prescribed a new medication for me, Jardiance (Empagliftozin), but warning me that my carrier [...] might fight it because of cost - exactly what happened - theyi insisted I try Methformin first, in spite of Dr. Ruby fighting on my behalf. My April visit to Dr. Ruby was my first visit since last December and sure enough my A1C had gone up instead of down, so Dr. Ruby re-prescribed the Jardiance but this time he contacted the carrier and made sure they filled the prescription - literally I started to see a noticeable improvement with my glucose levels within 2 days.

Dr. Ruby is the BEST. He's my doctor for just about everything and he gives excellent references for other doctors to address my health problems. I only have two doctors, Dr. Ruby and an Orthopedic Doctor. I have two of the best doctors out there and their staff is outstanding!

Dr Ruby has the best receptionist in the LCM organization. She is knowledgeable, efficient and has excellent customer service skills (and a sense of humor). Dr Ruby is excellent. His extensive knowledge still enables me to take charge of my health. I wish I had this team handling all of my health requirements.

I was referred to Dr. Ruby for a specific condition by Dr. [...]. I am waiting to hear from Dr. Ruby about his recommendation. He appears to be very thoughtful to my current treatment and the high costs of a possible advanced medication. The costs for the medication is out of pocket and extremely costly. Dr. Ruby would like to study my medical history, the initial date of diagnosis, duration of taking the current medication before advising and recommending a treatment. I appreciate him studying and thinking about me rather than quickly prescribing.
