Outstanding physician. The best I have ever experienced as a primary care provider. Superior 'bed-side manner', taking as much time as needed to listen, treat and recommend alternatives. He's all about the patient.

He is a very compassionate, thorough Doctor. He takes time to explain all tests readings and asks about issues and "listens" and understands your concerns.

Dr. Rutkoski is an amazing doctor. He listens to you. He takes the time you need to get answers to any questions you may have, no matter how dumb they may seem to you. He takes you seriously but also has a great sense of humor and will laugh with you... Not AT you. I have a lot of health problems and Dr. Rutkoski has taken an hour or more of his time to talk to me about my problems. He will get me the best help he can find if it's something that he can't or doesn't feel comfortable doing. I woul

Hello you lucky Traverse City people! You are getting one of Michigan's finest doctors. Can't say enough good things about the care given our family by this man. He is thorough, patient, and kind. Very knowledgeable. Feel confident that you will be getting the best care possible. Our family relocated and lost his services but feel the need to say Thanks again for the best care while we lived in Holland.
