About this Episode

Nurse Ruth has served patients at LJC for almost twenty years, mostly as Dr. Lori Saltz’s nurse and right hand. Ruth’s earliest introduction to LJC was through her father who served the practice as an accountant in the early years. After nursing school, she worked for several years as an emergency room and urgent care nurse before landing a position at LJC at age 27. She loved LJC so much, the rest is history!

After working alongside now-retired plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Roark, she had an opportunity to join Dr. Lori Saltz’s team. It only took a moment for Ruth and Dr. Lori Saltz to figure out they loved to care for patients together, and nearly two decades later they are still a tremendous team who read each other’s minds and finish each other’s sentences.

Hear Ruth’s candor and openness as she talks about her own cosmetic surgery experiences and describes her day-to-day work life with Dr. Lori Saltz in the unique way that only she can.
