Patient Survey Reviews

Learn how patient feedback is cultivated
  1. Dr. Rubenstein is great. Have been going to him for years.

  2. Dr. Rubenstein is very good about explaining in detail what he believes the problem to be and how he will treat it. He never seems to rush.

  3. My husband and I have been seen by doctor Rubenstein for over 20 years. He save my husband's foot from been amputated. . I will never go to anyone else. He is knowledgeable and companionate and he shows you he cares

  4. I answered excellent to all questions because Dr Rubenstein and his staff are always wonderful whenever I am there. I was even an hour late (my mistake) and they went out of their way to fit me back into the schedule that day and reassured me that it was fine and that there were no problems in accommodating me.

  5. Dr Rubenstein is wonderful in his knowledge and ability to explain my medical issues and very responsive to my medical needs.

  6. Dr. Rubenstein has the demeanor of a saint. He makes one feel relaxed and has a caring attitude. He fully provides an explanation to your problem in layman terms.

  7. In my case the 'cure' seemed worse than the 'condition' With 4 weeks without driving, 8 weeks in an ortho 'shoe' and then an orthopedic device in a sneaker (I don't generally wear sneakers). Might be a waste of time in my case.

  8. Dr. Rubenstein and his staff have been very professional from setting our first appointment through establishing a treatment plan for my son’s podiatry concerns. Our questions have always been thoroughly answered and I feel like my son’s feet are in good “hands.”

  9. I was fit into the doctor’s schedule on the same day, thanks to the secretary. Thanks!

  10. I was very pleased with the office assistant and check. Excellent reception The doctor was exceptionally personable and professional. He explained everything to me and had great bedside manner. Great experience.

  11. Excellent communication. Clear explanation of the problem. Clear plan to resolve the problem.

  12. I've been going to Dr. Rubenstein for over 10 years and he is always professional, listens to the problem and comes up with a solution. He starts off slow and then works up to more advanced procedures if the initial procedures don't do the trick. Does not rush you into any type of invasive procedure.

  13. I have met Dr Rubenstein a few times in the past with my friend, a patient of his. Both the doctor and his staff showed a lot of patience with me, especially to write down the pertinent information of the necessary procedure I am deaf and normally would request an interpreter. Since I knew it wasn't possible to get one at a short notice. I really appreciated the written communication which helped me feel comfortable before the unexpected surgery for an ingrown nail, on the very same day, my first experience! A podiatrist in Arizona had recommended Dr Rubenstein and I also checked the internet some years ago

  14. I appreciate that he was NOT "cut happy" but rather thought a small in-office surgery to correct the problem was only warranted if and when the discomfort I experienced increased to an unacceptable level. And it was good to know that what I was doing to date was correct. I appreciated his thoroughness and clarity.

  15. Always a good experience.

  16. Dr Rubenstein is a very professional and kind Doctor! Very happy I found him.

  17. Great experience overall! I’ve never had a doctor who spent as much time and actually listened to what I had to say as he did both times I went in.

  18. Dr. Rubenstein really took the time to examine me and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him!

  19. I found Dr. Rubenstein to be meticulous, highly observant, and very professional with an empathetic bedside manner. I felt no pain during the procedure and was comforted to find out he is a long-time Restonian like I am so our conversation about Reston during the procedure helped keep me relaxed.

  20. I have always had a positive experience when needing help and treatment. Thanks
