Ratings for Dr. Christopher H. Rush
He sometimes prescribes medications unilaterally without patient consultation. He also arranges some appointments more for his own purpose than the patient's. He is not the optimal physician for the independent/capable type patient. Office staff is on cold side.
Dr. Rush is that hard-to-find good all around general practitioner. He really takes the the time to listen and sort out all of your issues. I admire the fact that he will openly admit that he is unsure of a diagnosis or is in need of outside consult. (I had a very complicated medical issue). And he worked well with all the specialists I had to see. I even trust him with the care of my elderly grandmother. He's not an "overprescriber" but carefully considers all meds and their alternatives. And, if you catch him on a day he has time to talk, he has some real interesting stories of his days as a military doctor. Only issue, he is hard to see(which is more of a consequence of the shortage of GP's than anything he does) but if yiu have an urgent issue, Dr. Rush's practice is affiliated with an excellent walkin clinic.
Dr Rush is a nice man. He did not try to diagnose my condition nor did he try to refer me out. I think he didn't ask me enough questions - but my new doctor did. Dr Rush's receptionists are very amicable and capable. His nurse however was a very rude and did not return phone calls until I threatned to call the Dr personally.
Very professional. He has an excellent way of dealing with patients. He listens, unlike many drs. He is incredibly punctual - he doesn't appear to "overbook" in the slightest. I have never waited more than 5 minutes before an appointment. My phone calls are always returned by his staff in no time at all. He isnt condescending or cold, like many, many, MANY doctors can sometimes be. He listens and asks excellent, thoughtful questions rather than jumping to conclusions. He is just a nice person and an impressive physician with a staff much the same... and to top it off, he is a cutie. Does not get much better than that!
Dr. Rush CARES. Fortunately, we don't see him much but always remembers little details about our family. We feel like we can always get in to see him when we need to. He is proactive with medical care. He refers out when needed. Nurse line is good about returning phonecalls.
