Dr. Nathaniel Ruttig

Dr. Nathaniel Ruttig is a board-certified Comprehensive Ophthalmologist. He is an Ohio native and former flight surgeon in the Navy. He is fluent in Spanish, allowing him to care for Spanish-speaking patients in our community. He received his bachelor's degree and medical degree simultaneously as part of the six-year combined BS/MD program at Youngstown State University and Northeastern Ohio University's College of Medicine in Rootstown, Ohio.

Upon graduating in 2000, he served in the U.S. Navy where he completed his internship in Internal Medicine at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia. Ultimately, he concluded his service at Training Air Wing Four in Corpus Christi, Texas, where he served as the VT-35 Stingrays flight surgeon from 2002 to 2006.

At the end of his naval commitment, Dr. Ruttig furthered his education as a resident of Ophthalmology from 2007 to 2010 at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. He is a diplomat of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Dr. Ruttig worked in private practice for five years before starting Eye MD of Niceville.
