This is not my first visit and will not be my last. Every visit I have had with Dr Rubenstein has been a 10+. He is a caring doctor who always has a smile on his face and the most pleasant, caring and thoughtful attitude. He has a patience and gentleness about him especially when he is giving a shot. I have never met a dr who takes the dread out of visits and procedures. Some doctors have a stern look and attitude and it makes me feel uncomfortable. They have great reputations with their skills and that is what matters. But why not having a doctor like Rubenstein who has both. A personable bed side manner and the unique skills of a doctor. I would and have recommended him to others who are just as pleased.

There is absolutely nobody else I would want to treat my knee. I have a lifelong, chronic issue with my right knee and Dr. Rubenstein has been able to give me relief that nobody else has been able to do. Excellent physician with a very kind, caring manner.
