Doctor prescribed drops that weren't covered by my insurance. Pharmacy tried to get in touch with him he never responded. I still have the same problem with my eye as before. Didn't get any help from him. It took his staff three tries to fill out an application with four questions

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
