Ruthie Harper MD has established personalized medicine as the gold standard for caring for her patients. Personalized medicine is providing the right treatment for the right person in the right way at the right time (also known as precision medicine). Specifically, personalized medicine tailors medical treatment to the individual characteristics, needs, and preferences of a patient during all stages of care, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Dr. Harper has been treating individuals in this way since opening her practice in 1999.
With the release of the human genome project in 2003, she is now able to use specific information obtained from each person’s unique genetic blueprint, to custom design health, wellness, hormonal, disease treatment and disease prevention programs to address what is unique to each of us. No two people will experience exactly the same health issues or require exactly the same treatment because of their unique genetic makeup and Dr. Harper understands this, allowing her to get exceptional results with her patients.
