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.

I have been a patient of Dr Rutland for years. He is the gold standard for patient care. An expert in his field with a warm bedside manner. He takes the time to know his patients and give them the best of medical care.

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.

I scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Rutland about 1.5 weeks ago. Dr. Rutland was exceptional throughout the process of my diagnosis, surgery, treatment, and care. He was well versed in detailing the course of action and was with me every step along the way through surgery. I'd highly recommend Dr. Rutland to anyone.

Blood was drawn Tuesday for PSA. Dr Rutland said I would hear the results by the end of the week. After not hearing anything by Monday I called at 10 AM and left a message w/ his nurse to call me w/ results. She returned my call to tell me I needed a biopsy and I would hear from the scheduler for an appt. Not having heard anything by 1:00, I called back and left another message. STILL not having heard anything by 2:20 I called and spoke to the scheduler who made an appointment for me. To the best of my knowledge, cancer is a progressive disease and the longer one waits for treatment, the more likely it results in death. In short, your staff could act in a more timely manner.

I found everything about this visit to be very pleasant. The only thing I had to wait for was to get results from another facility which was no fault of this office. Dr. Rutland spent all the time I needed and answered all of my questions thoroughly.

The most memorable part of my experience was the ability to have an extensive conversation with Dr. Rutland. He was very professional and personable while answering all of my questions.

I went to Dr. Rutland after seeing another urologist about an elevated PSA. He had prescribed an MRI and biopsy procedure which raised my level of concern. Then i saw Dr. Rutland and he listened carefully to my story, reviewed my previous charts, and took plenty of time to answer my questions. He came up with a much simpler approach to resolving my condition and explained his logic. I was quite relieved and pleased with his care and plan for my treatment.

Fantastic doctor... great job Ability to explain the problem and make the patient be very calm about the situation. This is very helpful to preparing for surgery and recovery. Wonderful doctor.

I'm a sucker for exceptional service, expertise & professionalism - Dr. Rutland far exceeded my expectations. Not only that, the staff at North Fulton Urology are very friendly and super efficient. I've never waited more than 10 minutes. Dr. Rutland was thorough in his explanation of what was going on (kidney stone) and he was down-to-earth and easy-going. He answered my questions and truly put me at ease. The initial doctor I saw about this was the complete opposite so he really made me appreciate Dr. Rutland (and staff) all the more. I've had several opportunities to refer friends and nothing makes me happier than sending my friends to a place where I know they will be treated exceptionally well.

Dr. Rutland is awesome.... He put me at ease, explained everything in layman's terms that I could understand and answered my questions. He also took his time with me and I never felt rushed. On a couple of occasions, I had questions after my appointment and Dr. Rutland's office responded quickly. I trust him implicitly and feel valued and well cared for as his patient. Good doctors are pretty common, GREAT ones are much harder to find... Dr. Rutland is a diamond in the rough. I hope I don't have any more issues with kidney stones but if I do, I know where to go.

There are not many doctors like Dr. Rutland. He is extremely smart and he cares about his patients. My daughter and I both see him for kidney stones. The caring treatment we receive from Dr. Rutland makes us feel like a member of his family. Between the 2 of us, we have visited many urologists over the years. We are very thankful to have found Dr. Rutland and have him in our lives.
