Dr. Rutz and his PAs have been a part of my medical care for around 20 years. His care has been exemplary and the care from his PAs has been very good. I highly recommend East Lincoln Family.

I am 65 yrs. old, had 2 kids (now 26 & 30) and myself, my wife and kids received as good of care as I have ever had in my life. And that goes esp. to Dr. Rutz for his skills and demeanor, but also all of his P.A.'s, nurses and support staff. I cannot imagine a family medical practice that is better overall than ELF (East Lincoln Family Health) and I would encourage others to meet with them if they are looking for a regular health care provider. With the utmost sincerity &respect, Mark Packard
