Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Rubin is fantastic. I can't say enough about how much he has helped me. In my research of finding a doctor I depended on good reviews and Dr. Rubin's patients said many great things. I can attest to how wonderful he is. From our first visit, he listened carefully, never pushed a diagnosis and was available when needed for the first few months as we worked together to get into the right rhythm. Quite personable, easy to understand and clear with his recommendations. All of our sessions have made me feel comfortable and our check-ins and conversations feel so natural. I am truly grateful for Dr. Rubin and all of the help he has given me. Highly recommend him.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Rubin since the beginning of November 2021. I was in a pretty rough place when I started with him. He is very kind and helped me figure out what was going on in my head and together we found a regimen of medication that has been very helpful for me. My depression, OCD, and ADHD are no longer ruling my life the way they used to. Dr. Rubin helped me get my life back.

Dr. Rubin is truly one of a kind! I started seeing him almost a year ago and was in the worst place of my life at that time due to severe anxiety. He was kind and empathetic and worked through my fear of taking medication with me. I have now been on medication for almost a full year and my life has changed tremendously thanks to Dr. Rubin. If you are looking for a caring and empathetic doctor whose goal is to help you live a happier and healthier life than he is the best around!

Dr. Rubin is great! He has really helped me figure out the medication I should be on, the most effective dosage, and made this whole process as easy as possible. He listens very well, is friendly, kind, and overall extremely easy to talk too. I would definitely recommend that you reach out to Dr. Rubin.

Dr. Rubin has been the main component in successfully treating my mom for over 10 years. With a professional manner but warm demeanor, he consistently is able to come up with a solution and an effective treatment plan. I would highly recommend him to those who require psychiatric care.
