These clinical trials have involved treatment protocols for Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, diabetic polyneuropathy, migraines headaches, Parkinsonism, post-herpetic neuralgia, sleep disorders, strokes, and other diseases. Such trials have contributed to the FDA approval of drugs including gabapentin (Neurontin), pregabalin (Lyrica) and suvorexant (Belsomra). Dr. Rubin frequently lectures in the community and to medical personnel, creating awareness and education about clinical trial participation. He and his staff have enjoyed providing thousands of patients and others the opportunity to participate in national and international clinical research trials, which have brought cutting-edge treatment to the local community. In his role with Bioclinica Research Network, one of Dr. Rubin's key objectives is the continuation of exceptional communication and mentorship of local physicians and other providers so more patients can access the opportunities in clinical trial participation locally.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rubin "We strive to provide comprehensive and compassionate care in a friendly and comfortable environment. We expect all staff to participate in achieving these goals. We emphasize preventive care and recognize that medical problems and solutions must consider the person as a whole, but also their relationships, support systems and environment. Past and current stresses (including abuse and trauma) are explored and addressed as much as possible because these factors may greatly impact symptoms including chronic pain, severity of disease and outcomes of treatment. "
