Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Rubenfaer is very nice, professional and courteous but BEWARE of his horrendously rude and horrid staff. My profession finds me in offices of all sorts whether they're financial, legal or medical and NEVER have I seen a staff that's so vile with their patients.

Nicest doctor I have ever met, always in a pleasant mood. I have never waited more than a few minutes in waiting room.
