Dr. Reuten always takes time, seems interested, never rushes. If I have to go to the doctor - he's my man.

I have been seeing Dr. Ruetten for two years now after my other GP retired. Dr. Ruetten is an outstanding doctor. A very good listener, very patient. Explains things well. Certainly involves me in the decision making process. Listens well to understand what I believe is going on and what I might desire in my care. I would highly recommend him. I can not say I look forward to going to the doctor but I do believe I will have a good experience when I see Dr. Ruetten.
