I have been duly impressed with this service. Particularly when when I was in between patients and they forwarded a very important call to me from a patient of mine. I have had no complaints about the answering service and I have noticed that they are very good about matching the clients tone and need as the calls come in. I believe this was money well spent. You get what you pay for and when you purchased the ruby service you were getting extremely high-quality and super smart people that know what they’re doing.

The app itself has issues

I want to be clear that I’m reviewing the app only. One problem I’ve had is trouble getting Ruby to allow me to place outgoing calls- I’ll attempt to dial and nothing happens- the call doesn’t go through and the screen doesn’t even register the request. This happens less frequently when I call from the message from Ruby. I hope that makes sense. I also have had issues with the notifications. I was away for a few days and activated my Do Not Disturb. When I came back, I had 26 missed calls. I went through and read each notification separately to dismiss them, but whenever I get a new message, the number comes back plus the amount of new messages I have. When I review the new notifications, the number disappears again.
I will keep and eye on the issues mentioned and update my review when these are fixed. You got this, devs! I hope this information helps!

Great Service, Buggy App

Love Ruby Receptionists & the live answering service but the app is still very buggy. E.g., in the middle of a call, a high pitch tone will begin which forces us to hang up & re-initiate the call. This happens for both my phone and my assistant’s and has been ongoing for a few months. The app still does not support texting, which is a bit frustrating, and there’s no ability to save phone numbers to which calls are routed or forwarded, other than your own & Ruby. The app also crashes a lot, especially when I try to switch from the call out page to the activity page. Finally, the app will send me a notification of a missed call when there has not been one. Hopefully these kinks can be worked out; the live Ruby Receptionists are so wonderful & the buggy app kind of overshadows how great they are.
