i loved Dr. Rutledge. I had a difficult case and he was wonderful in figuring out how to do the surgery with "out of the box" thinking. The surgery and my recovery went well . He and his staff were attentive and very helpful and caring.

I had an office visit, surgery, and subsequent follow up visits with Dr. Rutledge. I found him very competent and professional in every aspect of his practice. I would recommend Dr. Rutledge to anyone needing a General Surgeon. Dr. Rutledge's office staff was also first class, especially Lisa, his Practice Manager.

I had my gallbladder removed by Dr. Rutledge a month ago. Everything went well and Dr Rutledge and his staff were amazing from start to finish.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I needed a port. He had to try two places to get it placed. The incisions were about 5 long where my old port had approximately a 1 inch incision. He used staples on one incision and super glue on other. Why staples? He knew I had cancer and was taking chemo so should have known I would have CT scans. He did not put in a power port which is the most common port (what most doctors use) so now I can't use my port when I have CT scans. Very unhappy.
