I found the consultation with Dr Rutkowski extremely helpful. I needed a clear explanation of what was going on and Dr Rutkowski was able to give this. He explained exactly how to take medication in order to manage my symptoms as well as medications I should avoid to prevent flare ups. Dr Rutkowski copied me in to the clinic letter sent to my GP which included the blood tests that he wanted carried out and guidance about further medication I might need in the future. It is good to know I can have a follow up consultation with Dr Rutkowski when needed.
Very prompt and explained everything fully
Best doctor I've seen since living in the UK! Dr. Rutkowski was informative and spent time explaining things to me in a clear way. I didn't feel rushed, and I left informed about my health next steps. He was super-friendly and great at communication with patients. I 100% recommend Dr. Rutkowski!
