Dr. Ruth Anderson practices at two locations in Wilmington at 2716 Ashton Drive and 8115 Market Street, Suite 108. Dr. Anderson also practices in our Jacksonville office at 2000 Brabham Avenue, Suite 100. She is a graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. She completed her residency at Geisinger Medical Center (Danville, PA) and Parkland Memorial Hospital (Dallas, TX), followed by her fellowship in pain management at the University of Chicago. Dr. Anderson is board certified in Pain Management and Anesthesiology.
Dr. Anderson earned a master’s degree in exercise physiology and has over 30 years’ experience in fitness and nutrition. This allows her to bring a unique coupling of health and wellness to traditional medicine, which is the most effective way to treat chronic pain conditions.
Prior to her medical education, Dr. Anderson studied dance at NYU School of the Arts in New York City. Her modern dance career was cut short because of a back injury, which enables her to empathize with her patients concerning the debilitating effects of acute and chronic pain. This experience inspired her to pursue an education first in exercise physiology, then eventually in clinical medicine with an emphasis on fitness and nutrition.
