Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rubenstein "Dr Rubenstein is a Board Certified specialist in the treatment of cardiac, vascular and thoracic diseases. As such, he considers a physician-patient partnership essential to obtaining optimal patient outcomes. This partnership requires active participation by both the physician and the patient. The physician responsibility includes patient education and the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular and thoracic disease. This includes both medical and surgical treatments and may invlove open surgery or less invasive interventions. The patient is responsible for smoking cessation, maintaining a healthy weight, and controlling their other medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol and lipid disorders. Together, we can work to maintain or restore your cardiovascular health."
