Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
I love being a Gastroenterologist because of my breadth of practice and my impact on health.
As a Gastroenterologist, I get to solve complex medical diseases with keen intellect, counsel on general health and well-being akin to a primary physician, and perform endoscopy to treat anatomical disease as a precise surgeon…often all in the same day!
Through Gastroenterology I get to prevent cancer on a daily basis, help ill young patients return to healthy productive lives, help older patients maintain their health and quality of life, and be the caring hand during tragic illness.
Do you have a specialty of interest in Gastroenterology?
I treat all aspects of gastrointestinal and liver disease with a specific interest in inflammatory bowel disease and immune disorders of the gut.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, and cycling here in the amazing Rocky Mountains. I enjoy escaping to the ocean for scuba diving and the feel of sand on my feet. And if the weather is bad, I stay inside and play the blues on my guitar.

Dr. Rufner was very kind, patient, and helpful. He's a very nice gentleman and there to listen and help meet me where I was at. Very knowledgeable and insightful, I appreciate his support and help with my personal/physical health.
I recommend Dr. Rufner to anyone who is confused with his/her stomach situation. It took him about 10-15 min to explain what’s going on with my stomach. He even drew a picture of my stomach problem. He has recommended me some very affordable but great OTC pills to deal with my acid reflex. He answered all my questions even those which sounded silly. Great doctor!
A very good experience
Dr Rufner is a man outstanding in his field.He has improved my situation exponentially.He is a very decent human being.Id reccomended him to anyone.
Great experience. Dr. Rufner was very down to earth and explained the procedure in a way that we all understood. The hardest part, was in the waiting room where a couple people I think were from Mars. Had a good 30 minute nap at IT WAS OVER.
