Dr. Rutman is the best doctor out there. Knowledgable and skilled in every sense of the word. He saved my life!
in New York, NY |
A fast-talker, know-it-all who missed a possible malignancy that a subsequent provider identified. Did a terrible job of setting expectations of treatment outcomes & blamed me, the patient, for being unrealistic. I've never had a physician talk to me the way this doctor did. He's not even a good technician because I have to have the cure-all procedure that he talked me into again.

Has 2 appointments Re: my incontinence situation. Mostly, Dr Rutman was OK. Personally felt that he's somewhat aloof. This kind of bedside manners leaves the patient on the cool side at least from my experience. He seemed nice. I was told I had OAB. After 2 months of med (Santura XR), no improvement. He mentioned bladder testing. I just didn't take up the offer. My GP Dr started me on Cypro and Flomax. My urinating habit has been much improved (frequency, etc.).

Other than for a UTI or Kidney infection i highly recommend him. He is professional & most of the staff there is nice. didn't want to see a male but the female Dr i saw there was beyond obnoxious & rude as well as the female NP. When referred to do procedure with a different female in the office i read her reviews but they were pretty bad so i chose Rutman. He did a cystoscopy with little discomfort & no bleeding & i don;t think anyone could have done a better job. His assistant was nice too.
