Patient Comments (14)

Dr. Rubinstein fixed two trigger fingers for me 3 months ago still can not bend them and still sore. He was very unfriendly and I never saw him before surgery and when I went back for post op he never came into the room. Very unpleased with his work and would not recommend him to any one.

The doc removed a large non-cancerous tumor from the end of my middle finger, requiring 12 stitches. Unbelievably, I never had any pain and 4 weeks later I cannot see the incision. Now this is a doctor!

Dr. Rubinstein is one of the best surgeons for shoulder repair. Extremely thorough and caring. Also very knowledgeable and is able to convey his message well to the patient. He has completed two different rotator cuff repairs for me over the last 12 years and I am happy with his work
