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.

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.

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.
Very friendly and made me feel at home.
Grateful to have Dr Rutland as my urologist. Area for general improvement is to make better use of Patient Portal.

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.
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

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.
i LIKED THE FACT THAT EVERYONE SEEMED GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUT MY ISSUE.
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.
The wait time was unusual and the only distraction form what was a normal visit with Dr. Rutland.
The only Dr I’m familiar with is Dr. Rutland and he’s fantastic! Explains patiently and helps me have a more positive outlook on health issues.
No comments other than I’m very pleased with Dr Rutland .
Everything was great except for the wait. I wish I could check in online and view current wait times. I always leave work and yesterday I waited over an hour and the visit before I waited over two hours.
I waited 3 hours in the office but that was due to a shortage of personnel that day which I totally understand.
(ULTIMATELY MY VISIT WAS AWESOME) Thank you to the staff and especially the Dr he was so knowledgeable on what was going on with my body i felt comfortable after 5 minutes of conversing, not to mention i slept better than i have slept in a year!!! my only complaint was the waiting area smelled horrific the smell of smoke made me dizzy, that part could not be helped... my visit was a perfect 10
Dr. Rutland was very helpful, thorough, organized and informative.
Excellent team who have all been very helpful. My suggestion is to better warn Kaiser patients that you have no access any referral data, or better yet get into an electronic exchange with them.
The needed documents and test reports should have been obtained in advance of my appointment, but, they had to be requested from my referring physician while i waited. I had asked that all documents be sent and I advised this facility that they should be received. This should have been followed up properly, so as not to waste my time and the physician's time.
Excellent care. Appreciate squeezing me in.

My appointment with Dr. Rutland was a fill-in appointment because my current urologist was away. I encountered a serious infection while on a cruise and was treated by ships doctor. Upon arriving home from the cruise I was able to see Dr. Rutland on short notice he diagnosed my condition and provided a solution to my condition. I am appreciative to GA Urology and Dr. Rutland for their concern.

There is not a better Doc around. He listens well, explains issues in plain English and then follows up. He has been my urologist for 6+ years and I couldn't be happier! He'll be my Doc till the day I croak!

I inherited Dr. Rutland when Dr. Little retired. I am glad that I chose to stay with this group. He is compassionate and caring. He takes the time to discuss his thought process with me so I understand why we are doing what we are doing. This is the sign of a good physician.
