Five stars is not enough. I delayed procedure for years out of fear. Finally went - Dr Rubin was hands down best Dr I have ever had. Kind - professional - incredibly competent - I knew I was going to be 100% ok. His staff at shady grove endoscopy center were the absolute best. Anesthesiologist Dr Le, the nurses, office staff - everyone treated me so kindly. Awesome team - heartbeat gratitude for the wonderful care

Excellent. Have had several colonoscopies owing to polyps found in first two starting at age 50. Clear for last three. Procedure is painless and frankly is the best 30 minute sleep I've ever had. Dr Rubin is very informative and upbeat especially in light of what could be an anxiety-filled process. Recently prescribed a probiotic and a peppermint oil-based capsule that really helped resolved persistent lower abdominal cramps and discomfort.

I saw Dr. Rubin today because I thought I had internal hemorrhoids due to what felt like prolapsing after BM. I wanted to find out if that was correct, and what I should do. I really wanted to do nothing since no bleeding, pain, or itching, but have been worried about it. I was very impressed with Dr. Rubin. He was likable, friendly, and most importantly, he gave me a lot of time to discuss my concerns. He did an exam, explaining each step, and put me at ease that I could do nothing for now.
