Nice guy. Nurse seemed like it was her first day out of school. The doctor was very pushy and was veryadamant about sending me to rehab or an emergency room. When taking my blood pressure they kept using the wrong size sleeve. They took an E.K.G. that had way better results. My blood pressure has been high my whole life but that seem to fall on def ears. I'm sure he is a good doctor just not the doctor for me.

First time patient and found Dr. Rutledge to be a great resource. He took time to talk through all aspects of my health. Never felt rushed. Super knowledgeable regarding health, diet and overall care. So far so good!

Dr was very knowledgeable and understanding of the situation. The problem is the address and phone # that was sent in my confirmation was wrong. Guess it's been wrong for quite some time. Ended up being 30 minutes late for appt. How could this happen?
