Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Clear and concise discussion of issues and options provided me with the "warm and fuzzies" that I wish I'd see from all of my doctors.
Appointment scheduler was able to squeeze me in next day despite being a new patient, and forewarned me about parking issues. Desk receptionist was exceptionally kind and patient in helping another elderly patient fill out her medical history. Excellent overall impression and experience with both staff and Dr. Rubenstein.
