Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Dr. Rubenstein has a very comfortable manner about him. Informative and kind and providing varied options of care leaving decisions with me. I never feel pressured on a course of action. So far, Dr. Rubenstein is batting 1000 with my care which thus far has not required surgery, but when it gets to that point (and the Xrays show that it will), I'll feel secure in Dr. Rubenstein's care.
This was one of the smoothest Dr's visits I've ever had. Kudos to the helpful staff, as well as the availability of a useful website for scheduling my appointment and downloading the forms ahead of time. Excellent all around!

Friendly, professional, no nonsense in discussing my foot problems and possible treatments. Discussed timetable for surgery options and post-care. Was not in a hurry to move on to next patient, but rather thorough in his examination and explanation. Can see why he is one of the :Best Doctors." He was also recommended by my Orthopedic knee surgeon, who resides in the same medical building.
Dr. [Rubenstein] was very soft spoken and explained things well
