I waited so long to have a hip replacement.....but after interviewing a few doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Rubins. I am so glad! My experience and outcome with Dr. Rubins was excellent!!! He uses the most up-to-date methods so that my recovery was a breeze and I was back to work in three weeks. Awesome! Pain is gone. Don't wait!!

Dr. Rubins is great! Saw me in the ER when he wasn't even on call but I requested him! Surgery was done the following day (on my ankle even though he primarily does knees and hips). No issues during surgery or post-op! Would recommend him to family and friends without a doubt!

The best experience from pre op to post op. Just follow the Doctor's instructions and you are good to go. Had a hip replacement 5 weeks ago and feel great. I had no pain after surgery. The best choice I could have made in surgeons. I had two other surgeons recommended to me and I am glad I chose Dr. Rubins. He also has a great PA Matt!
