Just saw Dr. Rutman for a routine, annual physical. He was friendly and thorough! He even did and ECG as part of my physical and uncovered an issue I was unaware of. I've never had an ECG and am glad Idid! His office staff is friendly and efficient. Hiccup with the ZocDoc booking first time around (auto-cancelled), but was rectified easily. Highly recommend!

I thought the doctor to be very professional and knowledgeable. He took his time in providing explanations and I didn't feel the least bit rushed during the visit. I went to him for an annual checkup and he was very thorough.

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Rutman, and I am pleased. His staff was very friendly, and the place itself was very neat. The waiting area has super comfy chairs, but don't get too comfortable, you won't be waitingtoo long! Dr. Rutman was very polite and made me feel comfortable when explaining my situation. Will be booking again!

The doctor took his time and made sure to ask a lot of questions so he can really identify what is going on. Do much different and better than my last one! The last doctor I had practically pushed me outthe door. When i walked out -he was on his phone. No more than 2 minutes in his office. The location wad a hassle to find because any map wrist or Google map will bring you to the wrong location so that's the annoying. The parking is free under 30 minutes but 4 dollars for the first hour. All in all I would highly recommend him:)

Terribly unprofessional office environment. Dr. Rutman kept me in his waiting room 45 minutes while his administrative assistants gossiped, and he didn't listen to my problems, making our visit extremely unproductive.
