[Dr. Rubenstein] has been very upfront on my foot issues. This has made it easy to make the correct decision on what is needed to do next. The staff is always very cordial and helpful on every visit.

Good and timely service. Good service by all office personnel.
Dr. Rubenstein and his staff are extraordinary! Their concern for my well being and Dr. Rubenstein's encyclopedic knowledge, coupled with a talent for making his patients feel relaxed, appreciated, and unhurried is uncommon in today's environment. If I could, I would rate him Excellent +.

Hoping for success
Overall, the appointment and experience I've had at FASMA has been a good one. I would recommend people to this facility.
Impressed with Dr. Rubenstein's care.
So pleased that someone actually listened to what I had to say and ordered tests based off of what I’m feeling not what they think the problem could be and completely ignoring my area of concern
I felt that Dr. Rubenstein is not only an extremely knowledgeable professional, but an attentive, caring person, whom I can fully trust.
My wife and I have been with dr Rubenstein for the last 30 years. Excellent
[Dr. Rubenstein] always gives a clear diagnosis, description of the options for treatment, and we work together to come up with a course of action.
Excellent visit. No issues.
I really appreciated how much time Dr Rubenstein spent with me. His explanations were thorough and in plain english, not medical terminology.
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.
I've used Dr. Rubinstein for over thirty years and he is an outstanding podiatrist.
