    nice enough guy. but his nurse is rude, condescending, and appears to be without any compassion.

    I went for a physical and it went well during the visit. I was sent the blood test results with no explanation of what the results were. Got a call from his nurse saying the cholesterol test needed to be done again. At the visit, Dr. Rutland said he would schedule a colonoscopy immediately. It's been six weeks and 2 calls to the nurse later with no colonoscopy scheduled yet. Seems like their main focus is to prescribe cholesterol medicine. Not a very friendly nurse.
