Dr. Rubinstein believes effective communication and trust are the cornerstone of the doctor-patient relationship. He knows his most important role while communicating is to listen. This enables him to understand a person's unique situation, what they have been through in life and in other treatment settings, and their philosophy related to treatment options. Only then can he and the office staff help fill in gaps of knowledge so common in the US as a result of misinformation, stigma and the bias of others.
Trust is crucial, since essentially all people with the illness of addiction have broken bonds of trust due to the behaviors that define addiction. Dr. Rubinstein and staff aim to work with you to build a trusting relationship here, with us, and nurture that moving forward. You can then utilize your own power, once you have more control over craving and the physical symptoms of withdrawal, to build relationships that are important to you in your life.
