September 11, 2015

He takes his time with the patient which is why I had to wait 30 minutes before being seen.

September 06, 2015

The Dr. was very informative.

August 31, 2015

I really like how detailed Dr. Rushton was in explaining the problems associated with my foot.

August 27, 2015

Very helpful, solid advice. I wish he worked in several locations because the traffic/drive was bad.

August 11, 2015

Dr Rushton was very people friendly and I would recommend him to anyone who needed a Podiatrist.

August 03, 2015

Excellent care from entry to departure

July 26, 2015


July 13, 2015

dr. Ruston was very helpful the first time I went in. this time he made a good suggestion for a foot support, but when he trimmed my toenails, her cut into my toe and it is now (7/13/15) and it's finally feeling and looking better. he didn't finely finish the filing. it just make me wonder what kind of surgeon he is if he is this careless.

July 11, 2015

Dr. Rushton was awesome!

July 06, 2015

Dr was very kind to explain my condition in an articulate way, and to include me in the discussion about possible treatment options. A great provider!

June 13, 2015

I was very pleased with my first experience with a podiatrist, and grateful for Dr. Rushton's excellent communication and examination. he helped me to understand my condition and treatment plan very well.

May 25, 2015


May 21, 2015

At my request he suggested a standard electric grinder, which I bought that day for my toenails

May 20, 2015

I cannot say enough nice or good things about Dr. Rushton he was very straight to the point, quick, and yet was very comforting as if again much like the nurses that I was the only patient he had at the moment. He answered every question I had, no matter how stupid, and was very thorough on explaining not only what was going on step-by-step but also gave me home care tips.

May 17, 2015

very good....

May 16, 2015

This was my first visit to Dr.Rushton. My toe nail was sensitive. Dr.Ruston told me that it caused by in growing toe nail and gave me how to treat it. But I had to ask him why it would cause in growing toe nail. He listed to me good when I tried to talk. He showed me a photo when I asked a question. It was easier to visualize. He seems to be caring a patient.

May 04, 2015

Decent experience - just felt that the doctor was a little rushed.

April 28, 2015

Dr. Rushton is an outstanding & very sensitive doctor.

April 21, 2015

DR Rushton was excellent, he explained that the problem was caused by the toenail being loose and rubbing on the toe. He took off the nail and prescribed an antibiotic and the problem is getting better.

April 01, 2015

I was really impressed with the pediatrist. He was friendly, thorough and had detailed information ready to print out for me as a very useful handout to take home. I really appreciated this. His knowledge, confidence and communication was excellent.

March 31, 2015

Exceptional care.

March 30, 2015

Without a doubt, this is the best podiatrist I have ever had and I've seen many doctors over the years . He gives the best care to remove the problems with my toes. I am able to wear my shoes with comfort as I leave the room. I have already recommended him to family and friends and they have gone to him.

March 29, 2015

Dr Rushton took plenty of time to explain the options of treating my condition and made a suggestion of something I might want to try in lieu of surgery.

March 22, 2015

Dr. Rushton seems to be very competent, and he explained things well. However, he was not very personable and showed no interest in helping me understand how my lifestyle might impact or be impacted by the condition I saw him for.

March 15, 2015

I liked the Dr. a lot he help me feel better about my problem & helped to know what I needed to do for it!

March 10, 2015

I was so very scared to come to see the Dr. But I know when my follow up comes I will not hesitate to make the appointment.

March 03, 2015

Dr. Rushton is very nice and gives good explanations, but he seems overloaded with patients. He sometimes takes weeks to respond to MyChart messages and I had to call and message multiple times to get my MRI results. Other than that, though, he is excellent. I would recommend him to others if it wasn't for the delay in responding to MyChart messages and phone calls.

February 23, 2015

Would have liked more precise information, sending me to another Dr. for ultra sound. Came from Madsen clinic, here, to there.

February 15, 2015

Doctor Rushton was friendly, informative, and thorough and I would highly recommend him.

February 11, 2015

Dr. Rushton was very good at explaining my condition and suggesting solutions. I appreciated him telling me where I could purchase orthotics at a lower price. I appreciated the paper work he provided for me to take home concerning my condition.

February 10, 2015

dr. Rushton is one of the finest professionals I have ever seen. he's an exceptionally good person!

February 09, 2015

he appeared to be in a huge hurry and I have already told several people to find another foot doctor!

February 02, 2015

Dr. Rushton was very good in the office. I feel like I could have used some more directions. He gave me a boot and told me to wear it six weeks. Then, he said I could try to start running again. But he didn't give me any information about how to transition from the boot to normal shoes and then how to re-introduce running and walking. Also, when I read his MyChart write-up about my x-rays, the information was in direct contradiction to the information he gave me in the appointment. It left me feeling confused and uncertain of how to proceed with my treatment.

January 27, 2015


January 12, 2015

Dr. Ruston is the BEST! Altho' I have seen him at various clinics, this was the first time in Centerville.

December 18, 2014

Dr Rushton is outstanding at discussing the problems and treatments.

December 02, 2014

Dr. Rushton was very knowledgeable and a great doctor.

November 04, 2014

October 18, 2014

Very impressed with Dr Rushton, excellent explanation about my concerns, took his time with me without making me feel rushed. I think this is the best doctor's appointment I've had in my life. Dr. Rushton is awesome and am recommending him to all the people I know.

September 17, 2014

Dr. Rushton is the BEST!

September 14, 2014

dr was so kind, concerned, and caring.

September 07, 2014

An appointment with Dr.Rushton is always great. Excellent Dr.

September 07, 2014

The U of U needs to add another podiatrist or two to its system. The Dr. is very nice but obviously rushed and overburdened with patients.

September 05, 2014

provide was good

August 20, 2014

outstanding provider

August 07, 2014

Really like Dr. Rushton, and he told me to contact him. I sent him a message in MyChart on Monday and Tuesday, and it is Thursday and I haven't heard back. I have now sent him a message through the University email system trying to get a response. Bedside is manner is great, very caring.

July 28, 2014

Dr. Rushton is an outstanding provider.

July 23, 2014

If we could rate Dr. Rushton even higher we would. My husband does not enjoy going to doctors, and as we left the office, he said "That was the very best doctor we have ever seen." He explained everything well and we did not feel like we were taking up his time, which can so often happen while visiting with doctors. He willingly and even enthusiastically clarified any questions, and we walked away knowing we had all the information we needed to care for out feet issues. Thank you! We will most definitely be back!

July 23, 2014

By far,this was the best experience in my 59 years in seeing a doctor. He as perfected his explanations and did not rush them. I left confident in the prescribed treatment

July 16, 2014

The doctor seemed to know exactly what was wrong with my feet and what I should to help them heal. He listened and answered all my questions.

July 15, 2014

Good experience, but wished a culture would have been taken of the foot abscess while there to assist with the ER and hospital staff deciding on IV antibiotic treatment of the wound.

June 27, 2014

Outstanding provider

June 26, 2014

I was explained everything about me problem and appreciate d the time it took to explain it to me.

June 25, 2014

Dr. Rushton was very thorough with his explainations. He even explained a condition I described to him about my sister. I felt he is a very good doctor.

June 19, 2014

I have seen Dr Rushton before and he is very competent.

June 16, 2014

I just have never had anything done by him yet, so that is why I put good on the confidence in this care provider, because this was the first time I had seen him, but he seemed to know a great deal. After surgery, I'll let you know about my confidence level.

June 14, 2014

he was very good at explaining to my child what was wrong and what needed to be done. very good with kids.

June 11, 2014

Dr. Rushdon is an outstanding provider

June 10, 2014

I have been seeing Dr. Rushton for several years. He is the best!

June 02, 2014

Dr Rushton was awesome. He did not make me feel rushed and made sure that I was comfortable throughout my procedures. Not feeling pain was very important to me.

May 31, 2014

dr. Rushton is perhaps one of the finest medical doctors it has been my privilege to ever have.

May 30, 2014

Dr. Rushdon is an outstanding provider

May 24, 2014

I have been several different podiatrists and this specialist was the best I've ever had for my foot problems. He was very skillful and was able to eliminate the problems I had with the pain.

May 21, 2014

Dr. Rushdon is an outstanding podiatry physician. You are fortunate to have someone of his quality.

May 16, 2014

Dr. Rushton was great!

May 15, 2014

the doctor is excellent i really like going to him he really know what he is doing and he took very good care of my problem

April 22, 2014

I am a diabetic and I feel that some type of antiseptic should be used when the doctor makes my toes bleed. He also files down the top of my big toes to almost nothing and they actually hurt for 3 to 4 days later.

April 14, 2014

I love Dr. Rushton. Would recommend him to anyone.

April 02, 2014

I like this provider

March 23, 2014

Excellent experience! He figured out what was wrong with my foot within minutes. He thouroughly explained the condition and treatment plan to me. He was very personable and I felt he was very knowledgeable in his field. I'm very picky about choosing doctors and I'll definitely go back if needed!

March 18, 2014

I was very impressed with my Doctor. He has very good people skill and seemed very interested in me as a person. My operation went well and seems to be healing nicely. I wished that we could have done the operations a year ago. I never bothered to tell my regular physician about the problem with my ingrown tone nail.

March 16, 2014

My only complaint is that when Dr. Rushton came into the room, he did not introduce himself. He said" hi, what can I do for you?"

March 13, 2014

Cuts my nails but ignores other foot complaints

March 11, 2014

Thank You for all the info I was given ......

March 07, 2014

Did all that I could ask from a Doctor

February 24, 2014

The experience was a very good one. I learned about the problem with my foot and ways to handle the problem. Dr. Rushton was an effective communicator and easy to talk to.

February 23, 2014

The doctor was very professional, but didn't solve the problem. I went to an orthopaedic foot doctor the followint week and he gave me an injection that solved the problem.

February 13, 2014

Totally good

January 24, 2014

I was please with care and left with a lot better understanding of my feet and legs with diabetic condition

January 19, 2014

He provided helpful information on insurance coverage that I had not received from another doctor in a different system.

January 13, 2014

Dr. Rushton was courteous enough, like his nurse, but didn't seem to listen to my issues. If I tried to tell him things, he'd just go back to the one, initial problem that I came in for. Now, I am a PCN insurance patient, and he is considered a specialist - so he may have been keeping the appointment short because I will pay for it on my own - but I still expect to be treated like any other patient. If I come to a Doctor, it is because I have a medical need. I'm not someone who sees doctors just for the attention. I felt that Dr. Rushton ignored me to a degree, because I don't have regular health insurance.

January 12, 2014

Dr. Rushton was very good. I was impressed with his skill and thoroughness. He was also very good in explaining things to me.

January 12, 2014

Most outstanding doctor. Gave me all the information on the comdition and encouragement for recovery.

January 11, 2014

Dr. Rushton is very professional, friendly and competent.

January 09, 2014

Doctor Rushton is great.

December 26, 2013

The Doctor Was Very Good.

December 20, 2013

Dr. Rushton is an outstanding physician & person!

December 06, 2013

The Dr. sent me downstairs for an X-ray and instructed me to return to the exam room. I fully expected to return to an empty room and wait. I was surprised to return to the exam room with the physician waiting for me.

December 03, 2013


October 31, 2013

Very helpful

October 30, 2013

My Doctor is very good.

October 25, 2013

Because of the long time it takes to get an appointment, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this doctor to someone else. I don't need any more competition.

October 25, 2013

I really liked Dr Rushton, but I felt as though the answers and information me were generic. The lifts he gave me were just standard 1/4" foam. It would have been nice to have felt as though they were for me, rather than "here's something. Try it, adjust it and then contact me on my chart."

October 14, 2013


October 14, 2013

Dr. Rushton is great, he has a great manner and makes you feel comfortable

October 14, 2013

very good

October 14, 2013


October 14, 2013

This was my first visit with Dr Rushton but he seemed to be a knowledgeable care provider that took time to listen and provide solutions. I like that he had alternatives to the more extreme ways of dealing with the problems.

October 14, 2013

I really Love the care I recievied, & Drs concerns along with staff.

October 07, 2013

he gave me the best explanation and understanding of my condition.

October 07, 2013

I am walking better than I have for many years, thanks to his help and advice. And now I know there are no broken bones.

September 09, 2013

I really liked this doctor. I'm confident in his ability to address & treat my foot issues.

September 08, 2013

My care provider was extremely helpful and concerned and seemed like he would go above and beyond to help with my problem.

September 03, 2013

I was so pleased with Dr. Rushton, I've already started recommending him to my family and friends.

September 02, 2013

good experience

August 19, 2013

I really liked Dr. Ruston. He was thorough and explained things in a way I could understand. He also told me were to find the cream and foot splints that I needed and explained how to find them online if I needed to locate them there. It is to bad that it takes so long to get an appointment with him (or any Podiatrist).

July 22, 2013

Dr. Rushton is the best doctor at UHC.

July 17, 2013

It was almost as though the doctor was upset at me or maybe someone else. i was early but checkin took over 20 min and I waited 10 min in waiting room.

June 19, 2013

Dr. Rushton is the best in his field anywhere!

June 18, 2013


May 29, 2013

May 07, 2013

Helped us make a future appointment so there would be no difficulty getting an appointment for follow-up care.

April 22, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Rushton to others.

April 15, 2013

There isn't a better Foot Doctor (in every way) anywhere....He is so good!!

April 15, 2013

My experience with foot doctors has been ok to EXCELLENT! Dr. Rushton is well above the excellent mark. I have two daughters that needed care but their insurance was not accepted and after 3 Dr.s that could not help them we went to Dr. Rushton and paid without Insurance to get the care they needed. His middle name should be Excellent or Superb or Outstanding....Thanks!!!!

April 02, 2013

I was amazed by Dr. Rushton. I wished he did primary care. He was friendly, intelligent, and explained things to us in normal understanding English. I will recommend him to everyone.

March 26, 2013

Dr. Rushton is very attentive. I felt I had his full attention and I didn't feel rushed.

March 25, 2013


March 11, 2013


March 11, 2013

February 04, 2013

January 30, 2013

Dr. Rushton is excellent to work with! I left him a message on My Chart which he never received. He immediately researched the matter and explained to my full and complete satisfaction what had happened.

January 14, 2013

I was very happy with Dr. Rushton.

December 31, 2012

Outstanding doctor!

December 17, 2012

The only downfall of this visit occured when I got home, and my wife was disappointed in me for not being open enough with the Doctor about how much discomfort I'm in daily with my big toes.

November 27, 2012

Dr Rushton was great, helped me so much with a very painful foot condition

November 24, 2012

Dr. Rushton is wonderful. He is a true humanitarian and a gift to his profession.

September 10, 2012

Dr. Rushton was awesome. He reassured me about the procedure and made sure I was comfortable and kept me updated as he worked. I felt very comfortable with my visit and would recommend him to family any day of the week.

August 22, 2012

Excellent care!

August 21, 2012

I asked Dr. Rushton about a new product I had seen in Reader's Digest and he knew exactly what it was and we joked that it was a vinegar based natural product I would be better off to use it on a salad! He is an outstanding, caring Dr. that is in the top 1 percent of his field (my opinion!)

August 20, 2012

Each visit to Dr. Rushton provide the same results. The diagnosis and treatment is accurate and healing goes exactly as he predicts.

August 06, 2012

The care provider was "all business," which was all right in terms of treatment, but did not seem to want to engage otherwise in conversation.

August 03, 2012

I was impressed with the amount of time Dr. Rushton spent with me, at the bedside, discussing my problem and offering advice. He was very personable and not at all condescending.

July 23, 2012

Dr. Rushton needed to design a special anti-pressure pad for my foot. I really appreciated his efforts.

July 16, 2012

First time visit with Dr. Rushton. He was very nice and willing to work with my child.

June 08, 2012

Dr Rushton was very helpful in explaining post care for my son . My son liked the fact that Dr Ruston and the staff treated him "that he was the patient" that they communicated with, versus"mom" ! He is 15 and he liked the respect of them.

April 19, 2012


April 11, 2012
