OUR PERSONAL TOUCH
At Rutherford Medical Center, we believe that a personal approach is essential to providing care that meets your specific needs. After all, no two people are the same...why should two treatment plans be? This relentless pursuit of personalization extends to your relationship with the doctor. Rutherford Medical Center believes in removing the barriers between patient and physician. We want to ensure that you can get the answers and care that you need on your schedule, in an environment that's comfortable for you; be that in our spacious, state-of-the-art facility, or in the comfort of your own home via telehealth.
ABOUT DR. RUTHERFORD
Dr. Keviene Rutherford received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Technology in Jamaica in 1984. Early in his career, Keviene worked with Shell Chemical International and Magna Engineering, both of whom would patent his groundbreaking work.
When he decided to pursue his career in medicine, Dr. Rutherford achieved two more Bachelor’s Degrees simultaneously—one in Microbiology, the other in Pure Applied Chemistry from Florida Atlantic University. From there, Dr. Rutherford was accepted by Howard University College of Medicine in Washington DC, where he obtained his Doctorate degree in 2001.
After medical school, Dr. Rutherford performed his residency at the renowned Cleveland Clinic in South Florida, receiving extensive training and experience as an Internal Medicine physician. He graduated from that program in 2004 and was Board Certified immediately after. He spent the next 18 years practicing Internal Medicine in South Florida and was affiliated with several prestigious area hospitals, including Bethesda Memorial Hospital, Baptist Memorial Hospital and The Memorial Hospital System of South Florida. Dr. Rutherford is licensed to practice medicine in the states of Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.
When asked what sets his practice apart, Dr. Rutherford said simply: “I genuinely care about people.” He is passionate about his practice and dedicated those who trust their care to him. He creates a relaxed environment and spends time with every patient, listening carefully to their needs and their concerns. In that way, the patient is an integral part of the
decision-making process and participates in their own health care goals. Because of this, patients have a higher level of compliance and ultimately, better results.
