Excellent and Best provider
dr was exceptional with my daughter. He made an uncomfortable situation very comfortable. I highly recommend this doctor.
I was very pleased with the appointment and was (good) surprised that he talked to her about social issues including social media and making good decisions/peer pressure. I've never seen a doctor do this. It was very helpful as confirmation of what we try to teach at home.
Excellent & Best provider
We love Dr Bob! He listens and is very thorough!
He is always amazing and very helpful especially with me not needing to change providers while I work on my Doctorate of Physical therapy to keep some stability in my health care routine. It is amazing to be able to see the same provider I have seen my whole life who knows me very well and helps me stay as healthy as possible.
Dr. Rutkowski continues to provide excellent care to our children. I love that he takes the time to educate our daughters on topics that pertain to their current lives. He has always done this and it helps for them to hear these things from someone other than mom and dad. (ie, stranger danger, vaping, age appropriate topics)
Dr Rutkowski is an excellent provider all around. Wait time was longer than I would have liked, but Dr Rutkowski is worth it! My son really likes him, he's very knowledgeable, and he is great at talking to kids about important subjects.

Dr. Rutkowski took his time with us and made sure to let us know about what to watch out for with my daughter while she was fighting this cold and what might happen that is totally normal and what to watch out for that I should call the office back for.
Dr Rutkowski is such a wonderfully attentive doctor, I couldn't wish for a better individual to be overlooking my daughter's health
I have been a parent of a child of this practice for over 24 years. now ages 24, 8, and 3. The care has always been great. Dr. rokowski is one of the original Drs. that I have had experience with and continues to provide excellent quality care. The practice has added many wonderful Drs and practitioners over the years all of which have been great additions. I feel comfortable with all of them to the point I no longer request certain ones because they truly all act as a team and all provide above normal quality care.
Dr. Rutkowski has always been fantastic.
Love Dr. Rutkowski. Excellent doctor and will continue to see him in the future.
Absolutely the best physician. It is difficult, at best, to find a doctor like Dr. Rutkowski. He genuinely cares. He listens. He's attentive. He's respectful. He's approachable. When you call him (FOR ANYTHING) he responds quickly and has a way of making you feel like you're his only patient.
Dr. Rutkowski spent so much time helping my son feel comfortable about our concerns. He has built a relationship where our family feels very confident speaking with him about anything.

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.

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.
