Stephen Rulyak, MD, MPH
A patient who chooses SCCA can be confident they are being evaluated by the best of the best. Our patients receive the most up-to-date and evidence-based care in a highly compassionate place.
My approach is highly patient-centered — the patient always has priority. I try to combine the latest medicine with a kind and caring approach. My goal is for my patients to leave feeling completely comfortable with their care and with no questions left unanswered.
I am a gastroenterologist who sees patients at SCCA South Lake Union and UW Medical Center – Montlake.
I have previously conducted research on colon cancer screening and prevention as well as familial pancreatic cancer.
We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.
Many of our Fred Hutch doctors conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other doctors and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
