  4. Dr. Rubenstein was wonderful with my five year old daughter. Great bedside manner and helped make her comfortable. We came in to get a wart removed from her foot. I was hoping it would be frozen off but it was too deep and had to be removed, which required a shot in the foot and a longer procedure. Dr. Rubenstein was great and so was the nurse - I would highly recommend him!
