Specialties

Dr. Edward V Rutkovsky has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
    These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
    In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

There was no privacy in the room for an echocardiogram, the door wide open , your clothing left on a chair at that door, other techs coming into room talking and kidding around as they were shuffling thru files- Totally non professional ! The tech performing the echo was great. The stress test and the heart pic scanning might as well have been done in the parking lot since both sets of blinds were raised for anyone to see. ABSURD, totally not professional. I agree w comment maybe doc pushes people to get stress tests. Only because it is located with the same offices of other internists, if an echo is needed on the spot its a default tone sent to him. Oh well. The doc was okay and fine, no problems with that. But they ought to get their place in order. Personally I would never otherwise go there.

Dr. Rutkovsky doesn't spend enough time with his patients. He doesn't tell his patients that he doesn't make hospital visits. If you need him in the hospital, he will send an associate and wash his hands of the problem. He would rather make his money running the stress clinic.
