when we schedule appointments we try to schedule them with dr. rutkowski or dr hall. both are wonderful drs.
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.
Dr. Rutkowski is a wonderful doctor. My boys are 3 & 5 and always remember & enjoy their visits with him.
I am very grateful to have Dr. R on my child's side and caring for 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.
Dr. Rutkowski is fabulous
Dr. Rutkowski has always been an excellent provider for my child. Now at the age of 13, my son sees the doctor alone and I talk briefly with him. My son is very comfortable with him and feels that his health is in good hands.
Dr and staff excellent in all ways
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.
dr. ritkowski was exceptional!!! we would love to see him again.
my son asked my wife is Dr. R just our Doctor or other peoples too? That's how personal the attention we received.
Dr. Rutkowski is the best pediatrician out there. He is so relatable and uses his own experiences with his children to help you navigate any problems! We love him!
very thorough and not rushed.
Dr. Rutkowski is the best. We prefer him to care for our son.
We love Dr. Rutkowski! We usually go to the Wexford office, but traveled to the Moon office specifically to see him. He has been seeing my children for their well care needs since they were born. He is very genuine and caring. My children are very comfortable with him and are able to express themselves to him easily.
We absolutely love Dr Rukowsky....he sees all of my younger children, remembers and knows their health problems.
Went out of their way to help solve the medical issue.

it is always a great experience when we visit for check ups or sick appointments. I can not say enough kind words to describe Dr. Rutkowski.
Dr. Rutkowski is the best! We have been seeing him for about 16 years and are always pleased with the care he provides.
The nurse and doctor were both very friendly and took the time to listen to my son even when he was telling them something unrelated to his health. I didnt feel like I was being rushed out of the door and I didnt feel like I was bothering the staff bring my son in for "minor" symptoms....cough, low grade fever, runny nose.
Dr. Rutkowski is absolutely wonderful! He is great to talk to and listens with respect. He is never condescending or hurried with us. The entire staff is excellent. The nurses are very caring and the front desk staff are always very nice and helpful.
Dr. Rutkowski is always good with my son who is on the autism spectrum and has high anxiety when going to the doctors office.
I appreciated the way Dr. Bob interacted with my child. He kept things light and expressed genuine interest in the things the child said. Dr. Bob will definitely be on the list of docs we ask to see in the future.
This doctor is excellent and interacts well with me and with my child. He really listens and is easy to talk to.
Dr. Rutowski was kind enough to care for my child's emotional well-being as well as her physical well-being.
The doctor is wonderful with my son and engages with him (not just me) during the appointment.
Dr. Rutkowski was awesome.Our son is going through a very difficult time with an assault at school.He showed compassion and care for our son.Gave excellant advice .
physician was absolutely amazing.
we recently moved to the area, and this sick appointment was the first time at the office. From reception at entering through seeing nurse, doctor, and at end getting receipt checking out everyone was wonderful. We are very pleased with the care given to our child.
I am very happy with Dr. Rutkowski and CCP Moon staff. I continue to have my children see Dr. Rutkowski because of the all encompassing care.
Dr. R is wonderful. He is genuine and caring. I cannot say enough good things about him!
The doctor was wonderful in regards to the needs of my son. He is at the age where he desires more independence and privacy with his doctor visits. I am confident that he is taken care of even when I am not in the room.
we have nothing but positive things to say about the staff and dr rutkowski
Dr. Rutkowski is the best! so fortunate to have him!
excellent care provided! Dr. Rutkowski is awesome!!!
always good experiences with this Dr
Dr. Rutkowski has always been an amazing and compassionate doctor. When our daughter had her health scare there was no other doctor I would have chosen for her. He is caring and thoughtful and really puts us at ease.
very good experience meeting this dr for the first time. very thorough. took his time with us and I liked that he explained things to the student who was shadowing him.
We always enjoy visiting Dr. Rutkowski. He makes us feel comfortable to raise any concerns without fear of judgement and explains things in an easy to understand way. We always request him for our appointments!
It was a great sick visit! We got an appt the same day, were in and out quickly, and everyone was great with my son. They talked and laughed with him and let him talk A LOT. He actually enjoyed it!
It was very much appreciated this doctor even remembered and asked about my daughter by name who he has seen when she was younger. Very great "bed side manner" too. Definitely my favorite from the group.
We really liked Dr. Rutkowski. I really like that he took the time to make sure my son was comfortable with him.
Dr. Rutkowski and Shomer are the main reason I continue to have all 3 of my children receive care at children's community care.
The doctor and nurse Jennifer Corman were both excellent.
The doctor was very good with my son and engaged with him to get him to communicate with him.
It was a really good experience. This was my child's first visit with this provider since we just moved to the area, and we are very pleased with the care.
After our appointment, there was an additional test result for my son, that we did not discuss. I was very concerned, and wrote my questions through the "my upmc" portal. Dr. Rutkowski answered my questions via email within 20 minutes. I was very pleased.
very happy with this practice
Dr. Rutkowski is the best. We could not be more impressed and pleased to have him as our pediatrician. He evaluated our son in the hospital, and then in the office twice now. We already feel like we have a strong relationship with him, and that he genuinely cares.
Dr. Rutkowski is an excellent doctor and I would recommend him to family and friends!
We love Dr Rutkowski! So much so that I drove to the Moon office because there were no appointments at the Wexford office. My kids and I both feel comfortable and confident when we see him. He addresses all of the important issues (stranger danger, body privacy, etc) but in a non-scary way.
Dr. Bob cares a great deal about the kids, and it shows. I glad he is one of my children's doctors.
Dr. Rutkowski is a top notch pediatrician, one of the best! we are always pleased with him during well and sick visits. He establishes a great rapport with my children, addresses any and all of my questions and concerns, and provides thorough examinations and diagnosis. We couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Rutkowski. when at all possible, he is one of our top choices of pediatricians to treat our three young children.
Excellent care provided as always.
I liked the way the provider tried to make my child more comfortable, even though she was not making it very easy on him.
Dr. Rutkowski is great! He's knowledgeable and also very good on an interpersonal level. However, I did not hear back from him about my child's x ray.
we just switched to this practice and I couldn't be happier. The Doctors actually took time with both of my kids unlike the other practice. really really happy we made the switch
I appreciated the amount of time allotted for my child's school physical. We were not rushed and the multiple forms were filled out completely. My son's questions were answered and he and the Doctor related well to one another. I feel that the appointment would have succcessful even if I was not present. Overall, it was a very pleasant visit.
Dr. Rutkowski knows my kids as if they were his own. He engages them, asks them questions, talks to them, verifies some info with me as well. We like several of the doctors in this practice but my boys have the best connection and communication with Dr. Rutkowski.
Very good experience, Doctor is very caring and knowledgeable.
He is a wonderful, caring Dr. Love him.
I love the practice and don't intend on going anywhere for my child's care
Dr. Rutkowski is definitely the best pediatrician we have ever had. He is so throrough in his diagnosis, and always makes sure we understand what is going on medically with our children. We always tell our friends about him and the practice. Always pleased when we need to bring our children to see him!
Dr. Rutkowski has alway taken a great deal of interest in my medical history and is a great care provider. He expresses a genuine interest in my well-being, and he is attentive when I speak. Dr. Rutkowski expresses an interest in how I perform academically and athletically at my school.
I have two young children who have both now been treated by Dr. Rutkowski, he is a wonderful physician and is very good with both of the children. He takes time to explain everything and shows concern for the children's physical and mental well-being. I mentioned that a close member my family is currently undergoing treatment for cancer and he took the time to ensure I had resources to help the kids both understand the illness and cope were something to happen.
Dr. Rutkowski went out of his way to be kind and patient.
We love Dr Rutkowski! my kids have seen him for years and he knows them, which makes feel them comfortable when going to the doctor. He is friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable and respectful.

Excellent doctor. Definitely want to come see him again for my daughter's next appointment

we love Dr. Rutkowski! He has been nothing but great!
Waited almost an hour in the exam room for the doctor!
Dr. Rutkowski always takes his time with us like we are his only patients. He remembers my child and I am very comfortable asking questions and for his opinion.
excellent Doctor very professional he is outstanding in his field
I was very pleased with him. Being that my child has ASD and ADHD, he took the extra time to make my son feel comfortable so he could check out my child. Great Doctor! All pediatric doctors should be like him.
Dr. Rutkowski is always friendly and informative.
The doctor was wonderful with my nervous 3 year old daughter, he even sang one of the songs from her favorite movie, "Cinderella."
Very nice and extremely receptive doctor.
all staff was very helpful and very friendly. my son is very shy and has really never been ill but they made him feel very comfortable
everything was fine
Dr Rutkowski is fantastic! He really listens and takes the time to talk with us.
Dr . Rutkowski always goes above and beyond being my son's health care provider. He sincerely cares about him and our family.
Both of my children go to this office. We have seen numerous doctors for different thing and they have all been wonderful. We mostly see Dr. Rutkowski or Dr. Jewel and we love them.
We love Dr. Rutkowski! My kids are very comfortable with him. He has excellent communication skills and is a great listener. We travel 35-40 minutes to see him when there are other pediatrician offices closer. The entire staff is always polite and concerned for the needs of my children. We have been going to CCP for over 12 years now and have no plans of going anywhere else.
The nurse and doctor are always very friendly at this office. Today the doctor went above and beyond by insisting he would make time to see my son even though we only had an appointment for my other child. When he heard I had some concerns with him needing to be seen he made sure to let the staff know that he would see him as well. This doctor is always thorough yet efficient and decisive. He takes the time to listen to my input and also spends some time building a relationship with the child and any siblings that may be along for the visit (all his patients) so that they feel more comfortable and have a overall positive view of going to the doctor.
The doctors, nurses, and office staff at this practice have always been wonderfully professional and friendly. Everything being done during the exams has been patiently explained and everyone listens to and answers any questions concerning the office visits.
Dr. Rutkowski was wonderful! We will definitely be making our future appointments with him!!
