Dr. Matthew Rutman – Doctor
Dr. Matthew Rutman was born in Brooklyn, New York and graduated cum laude from Binghamton University with a degree in biology. After completing medical school at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, he completed his residency in emergency medicine at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx where he was named chief resident receiving honors in teaching and patient care.
Dr. Rutman is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians and board certified by the American Board of Osteopathic Emergency Medicine. In addition to his work at Rutman Medical, PLLC performing trigger point injections, Dr. Rutman has been practicing emergency medicine as an attending physician for the past 15 years at St Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, New York and several other institutions.
Currently residing in Miller Place, New York, Dr. Rutman is a dedicated father of 6 and an active member of the community where he coaches the St. Anthony’s travel basketball team. He enjoys traveling with his family, playing golf and fishing.
Despite practicing emergency medicine over the past 20 years, I’ve come to the realization that I can also help people by both weight management and hormone replacement therapy. Weight loss and hormone replacement therapy plays an integral role in optimizing health and well-being, and I have trained to become an expert in both. I hope to utilize this expertise in each patient and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
