What People Say About Dr. Alan Rubin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

A year ago I would have said 4. I don’t know if he has his notes mixed up but I have not felt well for a while and found out about a year ago about a fairly serious medical issue. He kept telling me it was anxiety as it seems that’s what the medical community tells anxious women. Told me I overreacted once to go to ER after pooping blood. My medical condition Is hard to treat so I have recently been referred for a lot of tests. He has had me on same med for 2 years. Said he doesn’t feel I am making progress so he can’t treat me anymore and he has patients with more serious health problems than me that cope better. I tried to pull out my phone to show him medical results and remind him. He sarcastically said “ what are you doing with your phone?” Did not give me another referral or offer to see me until I found someone else. He is inconsistent- can be very kind but then seems completely frustrated and then goes and dumps someone vulnerable with no warning. So disappointed

Dr. Rubin has a very kind but direct manner, which I appreciate. In the initial visit, he asks a series of about 100 questions that help him zero in on a diagnosis. I went to see him after 2.5 months of misery, and he had me feeling almost completely better within about 3 weeks. He gave me a diagnosis that my other previous doctors had missed, but which makes sense to me and seems to have been spot on. After another 7 months, I'm still feeling great. Dr. Rubin listens well and really understands what I tell him. After decades in practice, he has a wealth of experience to offer. I really feel I am in good hands with him. He pairs a sharp mind with a gentle soul.

After waiting five weeks for an appointment, he rufused to continue speaking with me because I do not give out my social security number. I freely provide my health insurance ID number.

Dr. Rubin is a pill-pusher. He has no expertise beyond psycho-pharmacology. If you want a pill, he's for you. But don't delude yourself into thinking he knows more than the pharmaceutical company salesmen have told him.

Dr. Rubin is a wonderful psychiatrist. He helped me get through a tough time when no one else could. He is very patient and did a full assessment of my current condition and how to properly treat it. He is extremely patient and conducts a thorough evaluation, diagnosis and recommended plan of action. Dr. Rubin also makes himself available via text and email to answer any questions, issues, or concerns you may have. I highly recommend Dr. Rubin for those in need of mental care!

Dr. Rubin is fantastic. He did a full assessment of my needs and continues to do so each appointment. He is patient and thoughtful in his diagnosis and recommended plan of action, and takes into account your personal experience as well as medical history. His assistant is also super accessible via text - answering questions and sending appointment reminders.

He is very thorough with his exam/assessment. And he made me comfortable from my first appointment. I never feel rushed every time I see him. He’s an active listener and is very compassionate. He has helped me through my darkest days.

Dr. Rubin is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, and empathetic. He seems to take a “whole-person” approach and does not treat you like just another patient. He will work to figure out what best for his patients and will make adjustments accordingly. His assistant Reva seems very sweet also.

Warm and personal along with being extremely knowledgeable. Makes my appointment very personal by remembering me and my situation. Makes me feel hopeful Prior to prescribing Dr Rubin makes sure what I am about to take interacts properly with my other meds. Highly recommend Dr Rubin! Feel refreshed after my visit

Patient, insightful and easy to schedule around. Visits are not a simple 10 minute discussion and a prescription renewal, unless you want them to be. Highly recommended.

Can't say enough positive about Dr. Rubin. He is kind and compassionate, and is clearly an extremely knowledgeable and skilled clinician. His office staff is quick to respond, they communicate by text messaging which makes it unbelievably convenient, and I got exactly the help I need. I hope you never need a psychiatrist, but if you do, Dr. Rubin absolutely has my strongest recommendation.
