This was the first time we saw Dr. Rutkowski and had a wonderful experience. He was down to earth and very personable. It was clear that our 5 yo daughter was very comfortable around him, even though she didn't have a long-standing relationship with him. He was thorough and provided the care we needed. If given the chance, we would definitely see him again.
Dr. Rutkowski is an excellent pediatrician and knows how to relate to children of any age. He builds a rapport and connection, so it is easy to open up and talk about anything going on in your life. I personally have been with Dr. Rutkowski since I was a baby. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field of medicine, but equally important he is a great man and looks to build a relationship with all of his patients.
Dr Rokowski is always pleasant and extremely professional overall a very good doctor we prefer him!

This was by far the best provider my daughter has ever had. I wish we could get him every time for all three children. He was very knowledgeable and had a great bedside manor.

I love Dr. Rutkowski. He's an excellent physician and I wish I had married a man just like him. :)

Dr. Ruthkowski at Children's Community Care in Moon PA is an excellent physician. He feels like he is part of our family, because he is always familiar with my son's case and the reason for the current appointment.He is extremely knowledgeable in regards to my son's ADHD and Aspergers conditions. He speaks directly to my son and always makes him feel loved and valued.I am able to ask him anything without any fear of feeling inferior. The practice in Moon is 2nd to NONE. Every staff member is professional and caring at all times. No matter how busy they are, I am always treated as if my son is their only patient.My 28 year old daughter also grew up with the practice from 5th grade.

My 11 year-old son has been seeing Dr. Robert Rutkowski since he was about 7 months old and we have been very pleased with the level of medical care. We'd certainly recommend our friends and family also take their children to see Dr. Rutkowski.
Dr. R was FANTASTIC. My son was very upset about being there (he associates it with getting shots) and he calmed him down immediately. He was so kind, and got my son talking about Christmas so that he could do the exam. I was so grateful for his patience and kindness. THANK YOU! And, Merry Christmas. Now we will get to enjoy the holiday happy and healthy thanks to the treatment we got yesterday.
hes the best...my family and I just love him
Dr. Rutkowski is always amazing with my son. He fully understands his needs, which makes it so much easier for my son to communicate with him. It makes a huge impact that he is able to see my son on such short notice because with a child on the spectrum, it is important that he keeps the routine of seeing the same doctor.
Dr. Rutkowski is the best there is! Your getting response and suggestion based on personal experience and truly listens to you, not as if just hearing another text book case.
Dr. Rutkowski is an excellent pediatrician! I would not take my son anywhere else!
We love Dr. Rutkowski! He makes the kids laugh and feel comfortable.
Our family has been coming to this specific provider since our children were born. We have always received excellent care and attention as if we were their only patient. Currently our children are 17 and 21 and see both Dr. Rutkowski and Dr. Schoemer. They have always felt very comfortable discussing any physical, medical, or emotional issues they have gone through with these doctors. We think very highly of them both.
I am very grateful to have Dr. R on my child's side and caring for him.
Dr. Rutkowski is a wonderful doctor. My boys are 3 & 5 and always remember & enjoy their visits with him.
I just love him. He is very thorough with the examination of my child. He asked a lot of questions and was generally concerned about how well he has progressed. He also made me feel better as a parent that I have been doing everything I can possible to help him with his behavior problems.
Dr. Rudkowski is the best Doctor we have ever found. He was very helpful to getting my daughter much needed spot. w/ specialist.

Some of the questions above are not applicable to the visit we just had as it was a well-check-up. Dr. Rutkowski has provided excellent service every time we have seen him.
