Ruby W Tam, DO
Dr. Tam is a board-certified family-medicine doctor, and a certified Perrin Technique Practitioner. She graduated from Des Moines University Osteopathic School of Medicine in 2009, and completed a family-medicine residency at University of Minnesota, Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital in 2012.
From 2012 to 2022, Dr. Tam practiced full-spectrum family medicine at Northwest Family Clinics. She came across the first chronic fatigue patient in 2015. Since then, Dr. Tam has been reading and learning about the disease. Dr. Lucinda Bateman has graciously provided support and answered questions that arose over the years. Dr. Tam retired from her salary position in 2023, and started MECFS Clinic MN to volunteer her time to treat people with ME/CFS. Beginning in May 2023, she has the honor to serve on the Scientific and Medical Advisory Board of #MEAction to help promote advocacy and clinician education of ME/CFS and Long COVID.
"Patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome have been dismissed, under-represented, mistreated and ignored by the current medical system. They deserve equal access to good and affordable medical care like anyone else"
