I cannot begin to explain how wonderful my experience has been with Dr. Rubinchik. He is a true gentleman and a professional. I left a message on a Saturday he actually called me back that day to ask me what my concerns were and then said he’d follow up with the phone call that Monday and he did! I have never had that kind of treatment from a healthcare professional in my life he’s truly amazing . Thank you
