Very professional and helpful. He gave me the best physical exam I've ever had. Straightforward with information. It helps that he's even older than myself. I don't like going to young doctors. They've been taught what to think instead of how to think. Older guys have more experience and patience.

Dr. Rushing is the best Doctor EVER!! He has been my Doctor for 20 years; he is amazing and understands medical issues to a depth that I have not found with other Doctors. He is thorough and patient. He explains the condition AND often the medicine he is prescribing - how it works and when it will be most effective (as to time of day to take it). He truly is a walking medical encyclopedia. Dr. Rushing is kind and encouraging and makes his patients feel welcome and cared for.
