I've had multiple visits. At one particular visit I had many questions and I apologized for taking up so much time. The response I received was that they are there for me and they will make the time I need.

Didn’t have to wait long in his office. He took his time to explain options and listened to me. He was pleasant and not rude like other orthopedic doctors I have seen.

I have been to Dr. Rubano’s office several times over past few years with knee problems. I am 66 yr old female who worked for a living standing and doing hair. My knees are just starting to really bother me and he suggested getting injections in both knees. 3 injections over 3 weeks. WOW.... saved me.... we just got back from downhill skiing in Colorado.....absolutely NO PAIN !! Thank you again Doctor ??

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.

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.
