My 6 month visit, but also other issues. Dr. Rush diagnosed and is treating my problem. I actually enjoy going to his office. Had a minor problem with a staff member a while back, but that was resolved. I have recommended him to several friends and neighbors that are now seeing him.

Dr Rush is the best! Always on time, never wait long in the waiting room, even when i am early. Nursing staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. Dr Rush will patiently answer all my questions, discuss options, and then recommend whats best for me. Not only dedicated to solving medical problems, but is proactive in heading off future issues. And never an issue on prescriptions called in advance to the pharmacy. thanks Doc!

I am very satisfied with the care I receive from Dr. Rush. When he asks questions he listen to what I have to say. When diagnostic/lab procedures are ordered the results are quickly sent to me and any required follow-up or quickly scheduled.

I just located to Pensacola and selected Dr Rush as my Primary Care physician. He took the time to fully understand my medical history and to perform my Wellness Exam. I could not be happier with my choice.

I was very pleased with my appointment as a new patient with Dr. Rush. The waiting room is large enough that I didn’t worry about closeness to another’s illness. The wait time was minimal, the staff professional, and Dr. Rush thorough and friendly!

I am more than satisfied with Dr Rush! He and his staff were very personable and helpful and efficient. I’m amazed at how quickly I was called back. I had lab work after my visit and was still done in less than an hour and a half which was beyond awesome considering the fact I was a new patient. I have already recommended him to family and friends. I left with the feeling that he is a doctor that truly cares about his patients! I give him 10 stars!
