Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Rutland was the first OB/GYN I have seen (and I have been through three at this point) that actually LISTENED to what I had to say and my ideas for my treatment and birth control options moving forward. She's fully supportive of my choices of trying to leave hormones out of my health equation and very informative of all of my choices. She's just like talking to a friendly, insanely smart friend! I'm so happy I have finally found what feels like is my OB/GYN.
Dr. Rutland is super easy to talk to very friendly and very informative and thorough. Love her, glad I found her, she's excellent!
It was fine...
Awesome as usual.
Visit was okay, getting blood drawn - not so much and the follow up billing using three places to run one sample and two of those being outside my insurance network with my prior knowledge or approval was pretty disappointing as a first time patient. Including calling the office for more than 3 days to get an actual response from a person to agree I was charged by one of those laboratories incorrectly, however never followed and now I have a collection agency contacting me. All of this from a simple, routine pap. Given direction to call and find out why i was charged, was the worst part. Never again.
Everyone was super friendly and approachable. The atmosphere was really relaxing and calming.
I had such a great experience with Dr. Rutland and her entire staff. Dr. Rutland was very attentive and listened to all of my concerns. I felt comfortable with her from the moment she walked into the room. Her entire staff was friendly and very helpful. You can tell they really do care about the patients.
This was the most pleasant visit to the Ob Gyn that I've ever had. The office staff and Dr. Rutland were very friendly and personable, which made a huge difference from my past experiences.
For a first timer I felt very comfortable through all stages of the appointment. Dr Rutland gave me plenty of information, answered all of my questions and was very courteous throughout the appointment.
I love her. It sucked to wait that long to see her, but she was doing the work load of two doctors that day and is always worth the wait.
Not only does Dr. Rutland have an incredible "bedside" manner, but so does the entire team at Dr. Rutland's practice. It was a very positive experience from start to finish.
Bueno pensé que iba ser como en otros. Doctores. Que. No tienen esa ama vialidad Esa con fianza. Que uno siente. Cuando te tratan. Bien. Eso fue lo que sentí. Hoy en micita. Con fianza. Muy ama bles. Todos. Grasias.
Everyone in the office from the front staff to the nurse to the doctor to the lab tech were very kind and professional. It is the best doctor's office I have been to in the US. The nurse took time to talk with me in a very courteous and caring manner. The doctor took time to answer my questions and discuss options in a very professional and caring manner.
It was absolutely amazing! I have never felt so welcome and comfortable in what could be the most uncomfortable kind of doctors office. Everyone was super professional, warm, and friendly. I absolutely loved and appreciated the patient experience and actually won't be dreading my next appointment as I have done in the past with previous gynocologists.
Dr. Rutland is great. She is kind ana compassionate and she explains everything very well. She also never rushes you. l
Folks I need you to update my record in ZocDoc. I did not miss an appointment. You had mistakenly listed me as a new patient. I have been a patient of this practice in one form or another since 1986. Thank you.
My experiance was excellent! I praise God with all my heart because finally, i have found an OBGYN. Dr.Costanza has a very wonderful personality and is very knowledgeable about her work.She listened to my issues and gave me alot of attention and time, i felt like i was the only client she had and for once i left an OBGYN office feeling encouraged. She has a great team too;from the lady at the reception to her sweet nurses Norah and Anita who were very friendly and professional at their work. The office(from reception to the nurses & Doctors room and the bathroom )were very clean and neat. I would like to thank her clients who posted very honest positive reviews about their experiances with Dr Costanza because it is from those reviews that i made a decision to try her out. I would definitely highly recommend Dr Costanza to anyone who is looking for a professional OBGYN
Dr. Rutland does such an amazing job of making you feel at ease. I can't recommend her enough!
Great Doc! Highly Recommended
My first visit and my experience was superb. Very professional not only the doctor but the staff as well. They all make you feel at home. The office is very beautiful and cozy. The doctor is extremely friendly and certainly knows her business. I will give her and the staff 5 stars!!
She was great! Busy but understandably
From walking in the door to walking out I was treated with courtesy and professionalism. Everyone who attended to me did so with kindness and working to make me feel at ease. Dr. Rutland was kind and courteous and actually very fun to talk with. She also treated me with respect with regard to my knowledge, opinions and knowing my own body and personal needs. She stated that she hopes to create a spa like atmosphere to help clients feel more comfortable and at ease in the office itself. She certainly has done this as upon walking in, the calm spa-like colors and setting did set a calm tone and lowered my anxiety of meeting a new doctor after having had a horrible experience with a previous health care provider. I also appreciate the message chat system and the reminders that allow me to be in contact with her office with questions and concerns. She is truly an outstanding professional and I am very grateful to have found such an excellent health care provider after much research.
She was very kind, informative, and professional. I would definitely recommend her to my friends aND family.
Very nice and compassionate, spent time with me, didn't feel rushed at all, answered all my questions and reviewed everything.
She is very Nice and professional. I will definetly recommend her.
She is the best doctor i have ever had Dr.Rutland has tooken good care of me with the 2 pregnancys i had and i have her to thank because of her my both girls came out healthy and with no complications.
Excellent. Very informative and personable :)
Dr. Rutland was wonderful. I appreciate that she took the time to discuss my medical history and my concerns before I was in the gown. She was very understanding about finding solutions that fit my insurance. The office staff and nurses were very pleasant.
De. Rutland was truly a pleasure to work with. She answered all of my questions and turned a time normally fraught with trepidation to a visit similar to meeting a friend for a chat. I appreciated her patience and thoroughness when going over health related information, as well as how quickly we were able to work through my issues to my satisfaction. A gem!
She is delightful, well educated and very open to suggestions. You couldn't ask for anything more.
Dr Rutland was excellent!!! Highly recommend!
I like very much the doctor. She was very nice and professional and her nursery practice was very patient.
She confused my prescription with anther patient's. I would not recommend her.
There was some confusion with the staff about my appointment time, but Dr. Rutland saw me right away and was extremely nice, informative, and receptive to my needs.
She was very pleasant and professional, made me feel confit table, and her staff worked quickly. My appointment took about 1 hour, from walking in the door to walking out.
out of all of the OBGYN doctors I've been to in Virginia this has been the best one she explained things that other doctors never brought up. she just a great doctor she reminds me of home (South) southern hospitality don't treat you any differently she just make you feel comfortable all doctors should get input on how she treats her patients no matter what insurance color size and shape the person is treat everyone fairly as she did...her whole team gets A+ from me :-) God bless
Good. She is so kind and active.
She is friendly, amazing and I felt so comfortable and at ease with her
Love it!! Her staff were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable, front desk was very friendly and kind with me I was called in right away and the nurses were very nice and helpful as well. The doctor was very nice, cheerful,and kind as well
It was my first time to an OBGYN, so I really had no idea of what to expect. She explained to me everything that was going to me done and explained to me everything before it was to be done. I highly recommend her to anyone. Also, her staff was very enjoyable and had a great sense of humor.
I will go too no one else, very caring and thorough doctor.
She's very friendly and honest with patients about their options and what she can do for them.
The Doctor had an unexpected delivery which delayed me being seen on this date; but she is worth waiting for!
Where did she find her office staff from? Random picks from on the side of road or something. They never even bothered to initiate contact with me for my lab results and now I have been trying to get copies of my medical records for the past month and everytime I call a different lie is told to me. "The doctor needs to review your chart." "She is will sign off on it to be released tomorrow." Blah...blah...blah...lie...lie...lie. It is now about a month later and I call and still she hasnt signed off on anything to be reviewed for release. I was told the records would be sent to my doctors office but nothing. I have to take time out of my damn day to go all the way over there during rush hour to get this. They get a 5 star rating for being idiots, incompetent, and extremely unreliable for such a simple request.
It was great, besides the wait time. She was very personable, and the nurses were friendly too.
Dr. Rutland is amazing. She took time to make me feel listened to. I never felt rushed and silly asking any question. The nurse, receptionist and the lab rep were very nice and accommodating.
The wait was way too long when all I needed was a quick checkup and renewed prescription for birth control. Poor communication over phone. Nurses never returned my calls
She was (and always is) delightful! Only OB/GYN I've ever gone to that makes me feel comfortable!
She was extremely easy to feel comfortable around. She gave me a lot of information - which is what I was looking and hoping for. I'm so glad I found my new doctor!
Great except wait time
There was a long wait time, but the office was switching over from paper to electronic files so it was understandable. All of the staff were very helpful and welcoming and I found Dr. Rutland to be very professional. She was very friendly and understanding and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I had a great visit with Dr. Rutland! The only reason there was a wait was because she had an emergency which is totally understandable, it was reassuring to me that if I needed my doctor that the would be there for me. The staff was very friendly and personable.
Very pleased! Dr. Rutland took the time to prepare us for what to expect during our pregnancy with her and was always open and willing to answer questions. Extremely friendly and down to earth. Office hours are very accommodating for those with FT business hour jobs which is a huge plus!
Wonderful doctor .
Very sweet and helpful! Highly recommend her.
Very friendly and comfortable environment.
She was great! Answered all of my questions thoroughly and made me feel very comfortable!
This doctor was amazing, thoughtful and helpful. I thoroughly recommend!
I really appreciate Dr. Rutland's straightforward communication style. She answers my questions thoroughly, and takes her time talking me through diagnoses/options/just plain curiosity questions - something very much appreciated when we're talking about something as important as my health! I've recommended her to several friends of mine and will continue to do so.
The staff seemed a little disorganized, but Dr. Costanza was wonderful and friendly.
Very highly recommended, I appreciate Dr. Rutland's to-the-point demeanor. The wait was a little long but I'm willing to wait, she takes her time with her patients, and I like that she takes my concerns seriously and answers my questions thoroughly.
Takes time to answer any doubts and questions. Made me feel super comfortable!
Dr. Costanza is really nice and really gets too be with her patient and constantly ask if they have any questions.
First time visit, she spent a lot of time answering my questions and getting to know my history. Super gentle, super sweet.
The MD is amazing person!!! Had good time w her!!!
Dr. Rutland was great, very kind, caring, and professional. My issue was the waiting area/receptionist. They don't have a dedicated receptionist for some reason. I waited 35 minutes in the waiting area before a staff member acknowledged me. It was a little over an hour by the time I actually got in with Dr. Rutland. Once I was in it was a quick process. The girl who drew my blood was fabulous, we chatted while she worked so I didn't even notice. If they got a receptionist, this place would be great.
yea...no....and her front desk had no respect, called me 3 times (3 individual girls) to tell me i had herpies which wasnt and still is not true btw! and when dealing with the doctor about this situation she said, "sorry my staff is new"---wtf? im pretty sure front desk shouldn't be giving any kind of information....however this was back in 2013 and i never went back. I actually requested all of my information and left.

Wonderful. I came in to confirm my first pregnancy, and I could not have been more impressed. My husband and I were immediately put at ease, provided amazing individualized attention, and genuinely felt that the staff and the doctor shared in our joy. Can't wait to go back!
