Patient Comments (6)
in Rochester, NH |
Inconsiderate, extremely poor listening skills, asks for information (such as th name of your surgeon) then doesn't keep track of (or refer to) your responses, because he asks for the same information again (AND then his assistant phoned saying he needs to know the surgeon's name). All but boasted that he's good at speaking very quickly to cover a lot of information, and spent only 6 minutes with me at first appointment. A Dr's listening skill is important, and he woefully lacks that.

Dr. Ruben was my doctor for almost 3 years. I missed 2-3 appointments, all of which I called to cancel in advance. I was fired by Dr. Ruben. I called multiple times to apologize and I spoke with numerous people, yet Dr. Ruben would not take me back. Despite his expertise as a doctor, be very cautious about him. I my opinion, you develop a trusted relationship with your doctor, as I did. Yet - he cast me aside for no apparent reason. Very disappointing...

Dr. Ruben is #1 in my book. Have had wonderful experiences with him. Too bad his staff, beginning with the receptionist lack good customer service skills. If I had to evaluate the practice as a whole I would give one star Dr. Rubin is a definite 5 star.
in Farmington, NH |
I feel that Dr. Ruben is highly knowledgable but lacks the basic manner that I so desperately need. He is curt and, in my opinion, fails to convey a sensitivity to the patient' s concerns. I switched to another provider.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I asked if Dr. Ruben could call me to explain what he saw from an impedance test. He called and sounded angry and condescendingly told me that he didn't have time to explain the test and how it works (he was clearly upset I made him call). This is frustrating considering I've spent $1,000s with his practice. He was dismissive and was eager to get off the phone. I literally asked him is everything okay because he sounded angry. Good doc? Not sure. A jerk? Yes.
in NH |
I was terrified of the Procedures Dr. Ruben was about to do and he took the time to explain and cram me down, was very picante with me and nice, I was a total wimp and that is not me, so for him not to treat we like I was acting I appreciated that ( a lot ) As a women we go though so much, a mammogram ( someone pulling on your breast ) a pep ( putting u in that position ) and now this !! Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me respect and letting me keep my dignity. Would highly recommend !
