      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
