Dr.Harry Rutland is an awesome doctor, and I feel very fortunate to know him. I first met Dr. Rutland doubled over with a kidney stone and he immediately took amazing care of me. I've been a patient now for well over 15 years and Dr. Rutland as well as everyone in his office has always been friendly and professional...

I have been going to Dr. Rutland for quite a few years now. He has treated my various ailments professionally, successfully and with the upmost respect throughout. He explains his diagnoses, tests and expectations and always listens to my concerns and answers my questions fully. In addition, the office and medical support staff are fully supportive of the doctor and his patients. I firmly believe when you walk into their office, you are in capable hands.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
