Specialties

Dr. Natasha M Ruth has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Pediatric Rheumatology
  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult.

Awesome Doctor

Dr. Ruth has been our sons rheumatologist for several years now and she has been amazing! She cares for our son not only about his condition but also his hobbies and everyday activities. We travel over an hour and a half to see her and we do this quarterly. We would recommend Dr. Ruth to anyone who is seeking a pediatric rheumatologist with such a loving bedside manner. She is thorough in her exams. Her personality is wonderful and bubbly and cheerful! If ever we had any questions she never hesitated to explain further & even helped us as far as what things to look for as our son grew. She hands down the best pediatric rheumatologist around!

My daughter was diagnosed with JIA in 2011. She has been seeing the capable and caring Dr. Ruth the entire time. DR. Ruth gives much more than just medical attention to my daughter; she really cares about her life as a teenage girl and her daily struggles while battling JIA. I would recommend her to anyone as she is more than just a doctor; she loves her patience and is a remarkable person.
