Dr. Ruland has been my family orthopedic surgeon for the past 17 years. I have many issues with severe chronic inflammatory arthritis and have had both knees and one hip replaced to date. The practice is most accommodating to patients in scheduling, staff friendliness and professionalism. The surgical staff is outstanding from exams to surgery. Dr. Ruland is an excellent surgeon and I recommend him and his team highly without reservation.

Dr. Ruland listened carefully. He did not push for surgery until other options were tried. I am happy to continue to be under his care.

Dr. Ruland has now done both of my knees (12 years apart). I have received nothing but the most wonderful care in all my visits. Everything was well explained in advance and again, after the surgery. The surgery itself had no problems.

I look forward to my quarterly visits with Dr. Ruland. I've been his patient since 2006 when he performed knee surgery for me. He's very personable and attentive. I have improved significantly over the years. I would recommend him to everyone. His staff reflects his personality and his office environment is very welcoming.

First and very important he understands that my time is as important as his time, AAOS see's their patients on time. I like the fact that the xray facilities are right there so in minutes they can see with what they are dealing. Dr. Ruland is polite, professional, caring, and takes time to talk to you as a person and not just a patient. I have recommended Dr. Ruland to two neighbors and both have come saying "I know why you think so highly of him".

I was referred to Dr. L. Ruland by his brother Dr. C Ruland of whom I have been a patient for several years. Time had come for a TKR and research of Dr. L. and of the A.A. Hospital I felt very comfortable and confident that I would receive only the best of care. Every care provider I encountered from initial evaluation to my release from the hospital were most professional, sincere and polite. I've no apprehensions of future like surgery. Don

Have been a patient for 20+ years. Dr. Lou always explains procedures and options and lets you participate in your own health care. Office staff (especially at Bowie office) is fabulous - efficient and personable.

Dr. Lou has performed knee replacement on one of my knees and is scheduled for the second. His knowledge, patience and sense of humor is the reason he is #1 in my experience. He takes the time to explain and answer all questions (also relieve anxiety when required :-) ). Great Doc!!!

I was so pleased at the ease, efficiency of obtaining an appointment with DrRuland. He's knowledgable, explained everything and then waited for me to repeat what I learned. Providers can take lessons from Dr Rutland who knows how to balance knowledge with bedside manner. Would recommend him to my, friends and family.

Dr. Ruland is one of my favorite doctors. He is very pleasant and I never feel rushed. He is very thorough with asking questions and providing answers. After getting an injection in my shoulder I am greatly improved in just 2 days.

DR Runad is considerate of his patients. He takes time to listen to the concerns. He has worked with our family for over 20 years. He does not make surgery the first option.
