Dr Rutland seemed very informative he explained everything well and told me to contact him after my trip to schedule surgery. I called to schedule and the receptionist or assistant Mary was extremely rude. I was not feeling well and she questioned why it took me so long to call because she didn't understand why I was even calling right now. While I was talking she just said please hold. I am going to another dr because I'm afraid of the service here. Not good!
