Dr. Rutkovsky was very helpful at easing my concerns and instead of trying to run me under hundreds of tests or medications he told me to change up the time I take my medication and see if there's any changes. Sofar since following his advice I was able to finally sleep through one night. Hoping I'll keep getting better but will definitely go to him if my problem doesn't improve for a second game plan.

This was my second visit with Dr. Fred Rutkovsky, this time for a full physical. I returned to him because he was extremely helpful, thorough and direct, and still empathetic. He was extremely helpful last year when I was experiencing verytroubling symptoms. Dr. Fred Rutkovsky's manner is pleasant and understanding; I would recommend him without reservation

Very thorough, covered all of my concerns and more. I am someone who has never liked going to doctors as they never actually addressed my concerns. He was amazing, concise and I didn't feel rushed. I finally found a primary I can trust.

He has a great bedside manner and he definitely understood my plight. Where most doctors usually just brush me off and give the same old answer for my problems, he had a different insight that I appreciated and I will definitelymake him my primary care physician from now on. Thanks for the help Dr. Rutkovsky!

In this day and age is very hard to find a decent PCP with a good sense of humor. Nobody likes going to the Dr, but with Dr. Rutkovsky i rather enjoyed my visit. Everybody was friendly and well mannered andi didn't get the feeling like they didn't want to be there, like in most offices. Loved this place =).
