Thank you Dr. Rust for taking care of my right hand issue of fingers locking up. She took care of me within 30 minutes, and within 2 weeks, my issue was cured. Great physician and will definitely refer her to others with hand problems.

Recommended an unnecessary surgery for a minor issue that didn't resolve it and left me with an awful scar:

Dr. Rust performed surgeries on both of my hands, just 45 days apart. The outcome has far exceeded my expectations! She is an outstanding surgeon who truly cares about the well being of her patients. She takes whatever time necessary to alleviate concerns, is fastidious about infection prevention. Her nurse is just as competent and caring. I would recommend Dr. Rust without reservation.

I came to Dr. Rust after a bad experience with the initial doctor who was working to treat my shoulder injury. She was upfront about her experience with the type surgery I needed and referred me to a doctor who specializes in the procedures needed. She was very patient and took time to evaluate my records. The office staff and medical techs and assistants all were very kind and thorough as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rust to family, friends, and strangers!

I have seen Dr. Rust twice with Trigger finger. She gave me two different times injections in my finger. She is a very compassionate Doctor, and very professional. I would recommend her to any one that needs a hand specialist.
