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!!!
Jessup, MD |
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.

in Millersville, MD |
I was able to get a late-day appt with Dr. Ruland on short notice for an on-going right knee problem. I hadn't met him before but found him to be instantly friendly and likeable. He apologized for the wait time, which actually I had expected. Dr. Ruland took a fair amount of time with me, listening to my symptoms & examining thoroughly my range of motions in both knees. He described several courses of action, patiently answered my questions, & came up with an action plan. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ruland is knowledgeable, patient, always willing to listen. He is the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever been to. There is nothing that I can say that could really state how good he is!

Dr. Ruland is great. He has fixed my knee. I can walk without pain. He is always polite, concerned about his patients feelings and understands.
in Severna Park, MD |
Dr. Ruland is very friendly and personable--I feel that I am a person, not a "knee" or a "shoulder". This is important because he makes me feel at ease and I am able explain my issues better. Over the past few years I have seen him for both knee and shoulder issues. He listens, is thorough and explains everything in a way I can understand. He is gentle when giving cortisone shots. I trust him completely and have recommended him to others.
