Have seen him you several years. Has done several surgeries. Is available when I need him after a fall. Will take an X-Ray to be sure the many of my past injuries that are now full with metal hardware
Philadelphia, PA |
Great experience with my total hip replacement thanks to Dr. Rubano and his Assistant Tom. I would highly recommend them! Helen Pfeifenroth
West Chester, PA |
I wouldn't recommend Dr. Rubano under any circumstances. Never had a Dr with such rudeness! He told me that i did not have a condition I had been treated for?? And his reasoning made no sense. His PA was very smart and curteous and said my issue might be spinal and they would refer me to a spinal surgeon if the tests didn't show anything. Rubano was rude, did not ID an issue or refer me! I saw a spinal surgeon and problem fixed!

Had my hip replaced in 2013. It's been a textbook replacement and while there have been problems that prevented a 100% recovery, none of them are due to Dr. Rubano, the surgery, or the hip. He is excellent.
in Wilmington, DE |
Had a knee replacement with Dr. Rubano. Everything goes so smooth. They have everything handled for you including insurance. Dr. Rubano and his P.A. Tom explain everything so well. They listen to you and answer all your questions.
