I have been a patient of Dr. Rush since 2009 and I think he is a very good doctor. I have nothing but compliments for him. His staff is another story. I have been trying to get my insulin refilled for two days. My pharmacy requested the prescription on Thursday and still Friday had not received it. I called and was told by Simone no had requested a prescription and her attitude was too bad for you I don't care. Thinking a change should be coming.

My entire family and I are long-time patients of Dr. Rush. He is thorough, always taking the time to address our concerns. Dr. Rush and his entire staff are professional and personable. They make you feel like family, not just patients!

Dr Christopher H. Rush is one of the best Family Doctors I have ever meet! ( & i am almost 70 years old/ so been around a long time + i am an old retired RN). He is the very best at "paper work" of any Dr i have ever known. "All" that extra paper work Dr s hate to do, and many will charge for or not do it at all... well Dr C Rush just does it (Insurance claims, medical benefits, leave time temporary or permanent , referrals, recommendations, disabilities claims etc...). He is our Family Dr!

This doctor changed the dosage on my blood pressure medication without telling me if I had not noticed it could have killed me I would never go to this doctor again

Well, my Mother has been a long standing patient with Dr. Rush and until now has had wonderful service. Not sure what has happened, but 2 prescriptions for stomach issues when it clearly isn't the issue seems rather lackadaisical on his and his staffs part. When she called for a prescription of an antibiotic, it took almost 3 days and the response was for Chloraseptic, a throat spray. I have recommended she seek new care as you apparently have to cough up a lung to get an immediate response.

I have been a patient with Dr. Rush for 10 yrs! He has been consist in his care and has helped me through some really rough times. These days I get referrals to other doctors and do not see him as often, but when I go in for a follow up it is always pleasant visit.
