I have been going to Dr Rubin for over 20 yrs. I have a very unusual and complicated medical history and I feel blessed to have had Dr Rubin help me as we have seen it “unfold.” My husband & I do not believe I would be where I am today if not for Dr. Rubin.

Dr. Rubin is one of the best diagnosticians I have encountered. He has a dogged determination to identify and treat the diseases presented, and has a wealth of experience. He is very knowledgeable about a wide range of autoimmune disorders, and where needed, will aggressively use immunosuppressants and monoclonal antibodies. I have been seeing him for 6 years and enjoy his sense of humor and intellect. I am also very happy to find a doctor who listens! I would recommend him without hesitation.

I have been seeing Dr. Richard Rubin for over 10 years. That is all that needs to be said. if this doctor wasn't an upstanding professional and experienced doctor, why would I be seeing him today. It is far more important to him to treat your entire health then to receive high marks. I have been the worse patient as I didn't trust doctors. He has never made me feel uncomfortable with my behavior during my tenure , listening to me completely. I owe him everything. Thank You Dr. Rubin.

I have been a patient about 20 years & have traveled from 3 different states and also from an overseas assignment . Dr Rubin has consistently been an excellent physician in his field. In spite of the continuing challenges he faces with the healthcare system, year in and year out; the quality of care Dr Rubin has provided me is one of the best I have encountered! Thank you, Dr Rubin
