Dr Rutta is not only an excellent, trustworthy physician but he displays care, openness and time to explain and follow-up. I have a family with a strong colon cancer history, and he is understanding and willing to work with me to alleviate both fear and possible future problems. Anesthesia used leaves. no after-effect! My husband and I have seen Dr. Rutta for this routine procedure since time of recommendation and we and can only recommend him highly, as well as his caring staff..

Rude and condescending. I was told Colitis does not cause the pain I am feeling. I am not sure where a doctor or anyone gets off telling me or anyone else how they feel. I would highly recommend looking for a GI doctor elsewhere. He was also very rushed and would not listen to what we have to say. FYI I saw this doctor in the hosptial.

Poor bedside manner. He didn't seem to take my previously diagnosed chronic illness or my current gastroenterological symptoms seriously, just throwing random medication at my symptoms without doing further testing to actually diagnose the underlying problem.
