Patient Comments (3)
in Dallas, TX |
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.
