recently had a brain injury along with whiplash and disc bulging which he said minimal..was referred by wsib,never explained anything took my head with his hand and started shaking to right and left,i was in agony and scared ,then he says i have your neck...terrible experience
Dr. Rutka saved my life in May 2006 when at 16, I had a ruptured brain aneurysm. He was very compassionate and caring with great bedside manner. I wrote him a thank you letter when I was discharged from SickKids at 18 and he actually took the time to send me a letter back. As busy as he is, he took that time.
Brilliant is the first word that springs to mind. He is great with autistic kids ~ very patient doctor. He saw our son, when a specialist @ another hospital made a grave error by putting him on a specific medication & that specialist refused to see us ~ Dr. Rutka said it was causing our son "Catastrophic Affect" & took our son off the medication right away (we saw Dr. Rutka in the ER @ Sick Kids.) Dr. Rutka is a life saver (if our son stayed on this specific medication, he would have had a stroke). Just so kind & treats your child with utter respect, regardless of their disability. Well known by a lot of parents of autistic children with seizure disorder & all have said they are pleased with the surgical outcomes to control their kids seizure problems. A lot of happy customers with this great doctor. We are now going transfering our son's care down to Sick Kids. Thanks a million Dr. Rutka.
Dr.Rutka is my sons NS and has performed all 8 of his surgeries. He is an amazing Doctor and a very down to earth and friendly person. He always talks to us like "people" and explains things in simple terms for us to understand. He's called our house to check up on him and always replies promptly to emails we send him. We are very blessed to have him be Quinn's Dr and would highly recommend him to anyone.
