    Love, Love Dr. Rubenstein. He has been my doctor since 1999. He did knee surgery on my right knee this past June. My knee feels great. I always go to him whenever I have knee issues. I highly recommend him.

    Love, love, love Dr. R. He is straight forward every time I have seen him. He explains all issues in a way that I can understand. Over the years I have trusted him with five different issues and surgeries. He has worked on my daughter since she was 10 years old and has done many different surgeries due to injury on her since she is an athlete. He has treated and worked with most of my family members all being athletes. I would highly recommend Dr. R. to anyone.

    I think Dr. Rubenstein is the best orthopaedic surgeon. In 2012, I went to him for a second opinion about a rotator cuff operation on my right shoulder. He explained the condition of my shoulder and the reason he thought odds were great that the operation would be successful. The first doctor's opinion was mostly based on my age. I am glad I had the operation with Dr. Rubenstein. It was 100% successful!
    Philadelphia, PA |
