As a first time patient I will take the time to say that DR. Ruben was amazing, very professional and welcoming. It’s hard to find a doctor you can feel comfortable with. DR. Ruben just gained another patient.

I have been a patient in this practice for over thirty years. My in practice Dr had just retired. The front desk asked who I would like to see, and I immediately said,”Dr Ruben”, as I had met with him 28 years ago, when my oldest daughter was born. I remembered how kind he was, how at ease he made me feel. Nothing has changed, he is just as wonderful as I remember him.

Dr. Ruben is an excellent doctor and wonderful listener. He takes the time to talk with his patient in his office after each visit. He has a very gentle touch, too. I started with him a few years ago after forty years in another state with my last gyn, who retired. I couldn't imagine liking someone as much, but I knew I did after my first visit! I felt as if I'd known Dr.Ruben all my life. I see Dr. Ruben in the Ridgefield office, so the comments below refer to that location.
