Dr Rutland and staff are awesome. Very little wait time, the staff made sure we were taken care of, and most importantly Dr Rutland was focused on listening to my situation. He spent the time, asked great questions and was empathetic to my issue. He did not order test that did not really need to be performed yet still getting the information he needed to make an informed decision. He explained everything in detail to ensure we all were on the same page, and we are thankful for having been referred to him and GA Urology! We did not have an Urologist before, but now we know Dr. Rutland is ours moving forward!
Harry has been my Urologist for several years and has always been there to help me as I get older. As he says "It's about the candles on the cake
Thank you, Dr. Rutland, for taking your time to get to know your patients and to understand their health concerns.
Dr. Rutland, was very knowledgeable, knew the answers to all my questions and quickly put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone
Dr. Rutland diagnosed my bladder cancer in 2011. His excellent and timely treatment has resulted in my being cancer free since then. He continues to monitor my bladder health through cystoscopic exams every 6 months. I consider him to be an extraordinary physician, both in his medical competence and his personal approach to patient care. I recommend him without reservation.
This was my initial visit with Dr. Rutland and I am very happy that my primary doctor referred me to him. Dr. Rutland is very personable and seems to really care about his patient. He listened to my health concerns and recommended a treatment plan for me that makes sense. I highly recommend him.
The staff at this location are the nicest folks you will meet and their customer service is superb! They are the most efficient and cordial office I’ve been to in awhile. Dr Rutland is one of the nicest, most caring doctors you will meet. He’s also a great listener and surgeon! He keeps you informed and updated about your condition which is very comforting. After 32 years in the communications and customer service field I will say these folks know Customer Service and it’s a joy to see that in a business again!
Referred by my primary care physician to Dr. Rutland - I've seen him three times and I continue to be impressed by how much time he spends with me and really listens.
Dr Rutland was instrumental in curing my prostrate cancer. It has been 4 + years and the PSA is still unmeasurable. The seeds, radiation and hormone therapy is working.
Dr. Rutland, and his P.A., Clint Manley, are the best. I've been a patient of Dr. Rutland's for several years and have seen him for several issues (often on short notice). I've always been able to see him and have received great care. He always takes the time to describe what needs to be done and makes certain it gets taken care of in a timely fashion.
Dr. Rutland takes his time in listening to your concerns and questions and explains answers clearly and concisely. I never feel that I’m rushed by Dr. Rutland or his staff. I truly believe that Dr. Rutland has your health as priority #1!!!
Dr. Rutland gave us great news as well as giving me quick attention and a speedy diagnosis. He is very personable and down to earth. He wanted to take an extra step before doing a cystoscopy on me as I am at high risk after having surgery, radiation and seeds. When we arrived for the quick procedure for him to look with a scope to see what he was getting into, we anticipated a return for the real deal cystoscopy to look at the whole bladder up to tube.. Dr. Rutland was able not only to look at the full bladder without us having a return visit with more complicated dilation, but he also delivered the happy news that he saw no cancer in my bladder. Such a relief and wonderful service to myself and my worried wife. Thank you so much Dr. Rutland!
Dr. Rutland and his staff are very kind and thorough giving the options for treatment without pressure for a rushed decision.
I would recommend Dr. Rutland to anyone looking for an excellent Urologist in the Atlanta area. He is a true professional. He spends as much time with you as you need. He is a good listener, and his recommendations are spot on. You can't go wrong. I guarantee you will be very pleasred.
So glad to have found Dr Rutland. Love his caring, positive approach.
I feel blessed to have found Dr. Rutland. My former Urologist did not take his time and appeared not to care one ounce about my health or well being. Dr. Rutland is caring, considerate and appears to have a genuine concern for his patients, which I greatly appreciate considering the treatment I received from my former doctor within the same practice (who by the way is no longer at that practice). I can't say enough good things about this man. His professionalism and bedside manner are far and above what is necessary and I find that very comforting.
Dr. Rutland is genuine, professional, personable, and spends the time necessary to review your situation and engage fully with the patient. The staff is likewise helpful and efficient. This is medicine at its best.
I have been a patient of Dr. Rutland for several years. What I appreciate most is that he is a great listener and is flexible to adopt his diagnosis and recommendations to my changing circumstances.
Dr. Rutland and his staff are excellent!!! He takes the time to understand his patients and truly communicates. I was very pleased with my follow up visit. He made me feel comfortable and at ease!!!
I am very impressed with Dr. Rutland and his staff. They are friendly, caring and professional. Dr. Rutland has great bedside manners,, takes the time to listen and is clear in the answers to your questions. During my most recent situation,which was extremely painful, the scheduler understood and managed to schedule me in for the new working day. This type of immediate action is unheard of nowadays. If you need the help of a Urologist I highly recommend Dr Rutland and his staff, they are great.
Dr. Rutland and the staff is really special. he is thorough, kind and compassionate. Whats more amazing, I called to follow-up on some test results and the nurse actually called me back. great practice
Very friendly office staff and clinicians. Wait time was practically non-existent. Dr Rutland takes the time to listen and explain answers to all my questions. Very personable. Highly recommended.
Dr. Rutland is a fantastic doctor. His bedside manner is very caring and he takes all the time you need to get your questions answered.i would highly recommend Dr. Rutland for all your urology needs.
I have been a patient of Dr. Rutland for more than 7 years. He is a very professional, thorough and caring Urologist who always spends as much time with me as necessary to answer all my questions and concerns. I am very pleased with his treatment and recommendations.
Dr. Rutland is the reason I go here. He is the BEST!
Dr. Rutland and staff were excellent. Had quite a bit of difficulty trying to get estimated cost for the overall cost (facility, athes, etc.)
Smooth - Fast appointment
Dr. Rutland was very friendly, courteous, and professional. I will recommend him to my family and friends.
Dr. Rutland is fantastic and was great to work with. He has a fantastic bedside manner and thoroughly answered all questions I had. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs to see a urologist.
I think having to wait 45 minutes past my appointed time is unreasonable. When I asked if there had been an emergency that caused the doctor to be so behind, I was told he had "run over to the hospital for lunch." I find that inconsiderate and uncaring about his patients schedules.
Dr Harry Rutland is one of the best physicians I've ever experienced. He takes time to listen and really shows care & concern. And he does this consistently as I have been seeing him for many years.
Very pleased with my medical care thanks to Dr. Harry Rutland.

Left message for a callback due to long hold times. No one ever called me back.
A very positive experience. Appreciate the time Dr. Rutland spent with us explaining what we might be facing.
Dr was extremely professional and answered our questions. Could not ask for any better. The staff has some problems with receiving doc orders or info on portal many people were very upset with the office not having the medical records including me. I called my doctor and had them sent again while I was standing there
I believe the wait time for this visit was atypical. Normally the wait time is reasonable.
Dr. Rutland is caring, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable about my condition.
I have great confidence in Dr. Rutland. I feel fortunate that he is providing my urology care.

Dr Rutland is the best!
;Everyone was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. It was an outstanding visit. Dr Rutland was great.
Easy to interact with Georgia Urology. Very satisfied with Dr. Rutland. The only downside is the Georgia Urology does no make my medical record available to me online.
My spouse and I love Harry Rutland can not say enough nice things about him. Your reception at the north side extension is the worst. Have the Russian born women leave a voice mail for you. Let me know if you understand anything. When we entered your office, she verbally attack us the minute we walked in. This is my second encounter with her. I do not expect courtesy anymore, but I do expect civility. She was so abrasive, that my husband left the room to avoid a confrontation. He was a policeman, trial lawyer and judge for 40 years and told me she was the nastiest person he has encountered in years. I know he does not what me to visit her location again. Put bluntly if she is there, We are not. If you are beholding to this employee, put her some where she has no public contact. Again we think the world of Dr RUtland
In all my visits Dr. Rutland has NEVER made you feel that you were being rushed so he can see the next patient, has always made sure you were as informed as he could make you, that you understood what had been discussed, and never acted as if any question wasn't important. Most times an appointment won't start on time; but often you may be able to hear enough in the next room to understand that all his patients get the same consideration you receive. If only more doctors cared enough about their patients, people wouldn't feel like they were just another number. THANKS Dr. Rutland.
Dr Rutland and staff always treat me with dignity and respect and answer all my questions.
Medical care is great. Administration still needs work
very satisfied with the services provided by Georgia Urology.
Very much appreciate Dr. Rutland’s manner with my dad. He is compassionate, concerned, easy to talk with, and explains things in layperson terms.
Dr. Rutland takes his time in explaining his methods, which I certainly appreciate.

Dr. Rutland is personable and friendly. He absolutely takes time to listen to my concerns and clearly explains answers to these concerns.
I really like Dr. Rutland. He always answers all of my questions. He is very personal--a true professional.
x ray tech, not very happy
Dr. Rutland diagnosed an elevated PSA for me, Turns out the cause was an infection which he prescribed antibiotics for that cleared things up. Dr. Rutland explained everything clearly and took the necessary time so I could ask questions. I highly recommend Dr. Rutland for any Urology need. It's also a great convenience being able to have lab tests performed in his office instead of needing to go to a lab requiring a separate trip. His staff is also top notch. Great location being very close to Wellstar-North Fulton hospital. The wait time seemed minimal when I arrived at the office.
Very satisfied
Dr. Rutland is the best.
My wait time was almost 2 hours. I waited over 3 weeks for my appointment. But love Dr. Rutland and the staff.
Really appreciated Dr. Rutland explaining my condition to me in terms that I could understand. Very nice and friendly.

I have recommended your service to others.
Dr. Harry Rutland is excellent.
They don't come any better than Dr. Rutland!!
Dr. Rutland is an exceptional Dr. He explains the issues very well and he shows he really cares about you and your medical issues.
I LOVE Dr. Rutland! He is so personable, so thorough, so caring, and so competent. The wait time to see him is rather long - but I know that is because he had surgery that morning that took longer than he was scheduled for. I would wait for him, however!
Dr. Rutland always seems focused on my health when he sees me. He is thorough in his treatment and advise. He shows genuine concern for me as a patient. During my many visits to GA Urology this year, all of the staff have been very courteous and helpful.
Dr Rutland is a fine doctor.
apt was for dr Rutland. Another dr took his place but don't recall name. Survey applies to dr I met with.
Dr Rutland was not in today and some one else took his place. The wait after you get into the exam room and the Doc coming in is much to long! ------
I was extremely satisfied with my appointment with Dr. Rutland. He had obviously checked my history and was aware of my previous visits. He was very helpful.
Dr Rutland is very good. First visit 3 1/2 years ago saw him for first time and he treated my problem promptly. Since then have moved to Go but have not even looked for another Dr
Dr. Rutland is extremely courteous and listens to my questions and gives detailed understandable answers.
Dr. Rutland is exceptional, thorough, and welcomes patient active participation in the process. He is superior and deliberate. He's what specialists should strive to be.
Their initial exam 11 years ago for a kidney stone uncovered my cancer and probably saved my life. Dr. Rutland's surgery skills allowed me to return to work two weeks after my kidney was removed. They have treated me every since and I could not have asked for better care.
Improvement should be done on the wait time. I had another old patient complain publicly to me
Nice people
Recently recommended Dr. Rutland to an acquaintance of my wife. I told my wife to tell her friend that Dr. Rutland is about as good as you can get.
Great visit
Dr. Rutland is GREAT. Always explains things. Willing to take the time the patient needs. Just a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him highly.
Everyone's great--thanks!
I like Doctor Rutland very much he listens , and is very good dr.
Dr. Rutland is a fantastic doctor!
I was coming in for a PSA test. I ended up spending 90 minutes waiting in the reception area, and exam office before being seen. Everyone was polite and professional, just I felt I could have been there 20 minutes and left. I felt like I lost an hour of my day.
