Review of Dr. Ruben

- in NH |

I have had severe Gastro issues for the past 18 years,,, and Dr Ruben was the 1st Gastroenterologist I saw when I first moved to NH. Not only is he rude, but he doesn't know how to keep track of his records. I practically begged him for help and he turned to me and stated quote : " Get over it, Take Miralax in the evening and Loperamide in the morning" ,, Geez ,,, No quality here and completely condescending to his patients!

Have been suffering with chronic abdominal issues for 2 months. Dr. Maher made listened to me and showed compassion. He scheduled several test within a week time frame. I would recommend him.

Dr Ruben may be very knowledgeable but he has no bedside manor. He seems to have missed that class.

Review of Dr. Maher

-Dover, NH |

Dr Maher has been nothing but kind ans compassionate to me. Not only does he listen to my problems bit he also takes the time to get to know me as amd person and my family. Yes I may have to wait at times but that is because he is spending time caring for others!

Dr Flavin us a great gastro and nice guy. Incredibly smart, with years of experience. Furthermore, a genuinely nice guy outside his role as well.

Review of Dr. Ruben

- in Rochester, NH |

Inconsiderate, extremely poor listening skills, asks for information (such as th name of your surgeon) then doesn't keep track of (or refer to) your responses, because he asks for the same information again (AND then his assistant phoned saying he needs to know the surgeon's name). All but boasted that he's good at speaking very quickly to cover a lot of information, and spent only 6 minutes with me at first appointment. A Dr's listening skill is important, and he woefully lacks that.

Review of Dr. Maher

- in NH |

Avoid at all costs. After an endoscopy and esophageal dilation that he did, I regurgitate after every meal, when I bend over, whenever I burp, cannot lie on my left side at night without burning pain, air escapes esophagus upon exertion. Avoid this man.

Review of Dr. Ruben

- in Dover, NH |

Dr. Ruben was my doctor for almost 3 years. I missed 2-3 appointments, all of which I called to cancel in advance. I was fired by Dr. Ruben. I called multiple times to apologize and I spoke with numerous people, yet Dr. Ruben would not take me back. Despite his expertise as a doctor, be very cautious about him. I my opinion, you develop a trusted relationship with your doctor, as I did. Yet - he cast me aside for no apparent reason. Very disappointing...

Review of Dr. Ruben

-Lee, NH |

Dr. Ruben is #1 in my book. Have had wonderful experiences with him. Too bad his staff, beginning with the receptionist lack good customer service skills. If I had to evaluate the practice as a whole I would give one star Dr. Rubin is a definite 5 star.

Review of Dr. Flavin

- in Kennebunk, ME |

It baffles me when people "rate" a doctor without explaining themselves. Dr. Flavin is polite, respectful, a GREAT listener, and extremely reflective in evaluating symptoms and suggesting remedies. He takes a rather no-nonsense approach in his questioning and he has a keen sense of humor. He is certainly trustworthy, and although not exactly "talkative," he will readily answer any questions asked of him. He certainly provides adequate time for his patients.
