Excellent - ****** Staff & Doc !!
in Niceville, Fl |
Dr. Ruttig performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes in January, 2017. He made me very comfortable with having the surgery due to his medical knowledge about all aspects of the eye and vision. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure and the follow up. My vision is amazing following the surgery thanks to the surgical skills of Doctor Ruttig. I highly recommend Dr. Putting.

Dr. Ruttig's staff worked me in their busy schedule for an urgent eye issue. Super doctor and very professional staff.
in Ft Walton Beach, FL |
Dr Ruttig performed a difficult cataract procedure,because my eye refused to properly dilate. He explained the difficulty of the operation without proper dilation. For almost 3 months every eye drop available for this condition was used and success was at best about 60% dilation. He had to use a temporary plastic ring in the procedure. His skill was such that I have 20/20 vision and no longer need glasses for distance vision. I highly recommend this skilled surgeon for any eye need you have.

Dr. Ruttig is the nicest, most caring doctor I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. He called the day after eyelid surgery to see how I was. Then, after the stitches were removed, I inadvertently rubbed eyes and split the incisions. Dr. Ruttig met me at the clinic on a Saturday and repaired them. I was so relieved not have to wait the weekend to get them fixed.

Dr. Ruttig performed cataract surgery for me in April 2015 and did a masterful job. He was through, gentle, friendly and exceedingly competent. At that time he was with another practice and was doing yeoman's work with many patients scheduled closely together. I saw him for an annual check up at his new practice and found him to be very very knowledgeable, relaxed and helpful. He is an excellent physician!!!!
