I cannot recommend Dr Rubins due to my past experience with a full hip replacement he performed 3 years ago. When cut my quad tendon to relax it during the operation he cut too much off of it. He tried suturing it but it detached from the bone during my physical therapy, I went back to Dr Rubins twice explaining how I was feeling but he discounted and did not give me a thorough examination. I went for a second opinion and it was confirmed on the very first visit my quad was detached continue

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!
