Recently medical care has become very fragmented and impersonal. The medical system has become complicated and difficult to understand. Dr. Rutman and his staff are committed to thoroughly evaluating your medical problems by listening to your concerns, treating you as an individual and responding to your questions. 

We strive to do this in a friendly, compassionate and caring environment. We focus on the total patient, not just an organ system. We want to educate our patients about their health needs and work with them as a partner to achieve their health goals.
