What People Say About Dr. Michael Rubeis, MD

Was a repeat patient, every couple of years I get an injection. Had the consult, the procedure was scheduled 1 1/2 weeks later. Showed up for my appointment, then they told me it was cancelled due to the insurance approval not coming through. Turns out they had only submitted it 36 hours before, and even so, the insurance said they would have approved it if it had been marked urgent. Keep in mind I had to have a driver so my daughter had taken off work and these people could not have cared less.

Receptionist (Lissa?) denied my referral without attempting to contact the referring office or obtain any medical records. Regardless of her background, there's no way any medical professional could have reviewed my case appropriately. My overall review score is a direct reflection of their answering service denying medical care to a former patient without cause or adequate explanation. When I received the same nerve block injections I need now many years ago, Rubeis did a good job. Shame.

I was diagnosed with a spazmatic back which herniated discs at L4 & L5 instead of offering suggestions he kept prescribing pills and shots in my back (only 1/2 of the shots worked). I had 2 minutes to tell him how I felt which I don't think he paid attention to he just wanted to charge 2000.00 for the shots until I couldn't have any more then quit going.

Does not consider me or my pain as an individual. Very rude and short with his answers. Makes me feel like I'm wasting his time. After the appointment I had today, leads me looking for a new provider and warn others of this mans narrow minded way of thinking and treatment. Very RUDE !!

I have never been treated so badly by a physician in my life. This doctor is the most uncaring and unprofessional. I presented to his clinic on 6-21-16 with acute left sided sciatica. I had difficult walking. My intake sheet indicated a pain level between 9-10. He never reviewed my MRI results (which he ordered). He walked into the exam room had me sit on the table hit my knees with his hammer. Left the room again came back and said you need to have an epidural and left the room again.

It was the WORST EXPERIENCE. He is no more than QUACK DR. I had the epidural 2 times in my Cervical Area. First time it did nothing!! Second time I was given enough sleep meds so was awake during the procedure. I had the worst pain following the procedure than before. Now...He wanted me to return back for a 1 minute VISIT...mind you they charged me $250 for that office visit following the epidural REALLY!!!! A RIP OFF!
