Meet your Doctor

Dr. Ruth Olumba (formerly Arumala), DO, MPH, FACOG, NCMP

As a young undergraduate student at the University of Maryland, I was fascinated by both the human mind and body. I earned a dual degree in Cellular & Molecular Biology/ Genetics & Psychology. I completed both Bachelors of Sciences with honors which set me up for my next chapter of education. I then attended Mercer University School of Medicine where I earned a Master of Public Health (MPH). Although my academic focus was Public Policy, I was fascinated by chronic diseases & how they affected the population. In addition, I was alarmed by the lack of health literacy among a large portion of Americans and the resulting health disparities across racial & ethnic lines. This birthed my desire to adopt methods to distill complex medical issues into understandable, relatable, digestible nuggets.

As I completed my MPH, I simultaneously completed a Health Administration Certificate focused Emergency Preparedness at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. After completing both programs at the top of my class, I matriculated into Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine on an academic scholarship. Here I built a solid academic foundation that prepared me to be a caring physician that considers the whole patient including the body, soul & spirit.

During my 2nd year of medical school, one of the most pivotal events of my life occurred. My
brother, Samuel O. Arumala, passed away while admitted for care in a hospital. This devastating event shaped my empathy for patients in a way that is indescribable. As I recovered from this tragedy, I spent a year in Gaborone, Botswana doing dermatology & telemedicine research.

After completing medical school & OB GYN residency, I completed reproductive surgery training in Oklahoma. This training focused on the care of women with fibroids.

With the skills I acquired, I opened my 1st practice in Mansfield, Tx. Over the two years in solo private practice, I served on the executive committee at Texas Health Mansfield and taught as an assistant professor at Fort Worth Medical School. I earned the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology board certification, the North American Menopause Society certification, & Robotic Surgery certification

I was commended for my work by receiving 13 awards including 2020 & 2022 White Dress Project Blossom award for Fibroid education & advocacy, 2020 National Minority Quality Forum’s 40 Under 40 Leaders in Minority Health, 2020, 2021 & 2022 Fort Worth Magazine “Top Docs” Tarrant County, Ob-Gyn, 2020, 2021 & 2022, Texas Super Doctors Rising Stars, and 2020 & 2021 Women in Medicine’s “Top ObGyn” Fort Worth.

After two years in private practice, I closed my practice and headed to Bellevue, Washington. I was one of a few gynecologists in the country to be selected to  complete a rigorous American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery dual accredited facial & general cosmetic surgery fellowship.

During this hands-on intense training, I learned the science and art of restoring the body to aesthetically pleasing forms. This has been one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of my practice because I believe that health and wellbeing is from outside in and inside out.
