I visited Dr. Rubin’s office for a second opinion regarding a shoulder issue. I had been informed there was a full thickness tear in the supraspinatus and surgery was not advised at the time. After viewing the X-rays and MRI, Dr. Rubin concurred with the findings. However, what made a tremendous difference when I met with him was the time he took to review the MRI and X-rays with me and explain the limitations as well as what I could do without doing further damage to the shoulder.

Dr. Rubin and his assistance Jillian have created a professional and personable atmosphere. Dr. Rubin was thorough in my health history and took time to listen and learn what’s important to me in terms of my active lifestyle. He treated my shoulders non-surgically until surgery was only option. I'm 8 weeks post surgery and Dr. Rubin is still very much involved with my recovery via text, email, phone or Face Time. My scar is all but invisible. Dr. Rubin is the only ortho I will see in the future

Dr.Rubin helped me when my GP and specialists could not figure out my problem. He ordered all of the right tests and we got to the cause of my problem. Dr. Rubin also fit me in on the same day that I called him.

Very talented and gifted doctor. I have had many surgeries from Dr. Rubin andcame out of all of them in better shape and quite happy. Doctor Rubin is the only doctor that I will allow to operate on me for Ortho needs!

Dr. Rubin is amazing! He is very invested in his patient's care and really takes the time to get a complete history of the problem. He is so nice and personable as well as knowledgable in his field. I always felt very well taken care of and am so happy with the results achieved. I would highly recommend Dr. Rubin!!

I broke my hand at 7 months pregnant! What a nightmare! However, all my stresses and fears were relieved once I saw Dr. Rubin. Dr. Rubin provided me with the most kind and excellent ' care when a broke my 5th metacarpal. Jilian was able to get me an appointment right away. Dr. Rubin went over my treatment plan, which thankfully did not require surgery. If I ever break anymore bones, I will surely be back!
in Sacramento, CA |
I found Dr Rubin's practice very capable. He handled my surgery quite professionally and had my range of movement restored within a few months! Thanks Dr Rubin!

Went back to have 2nd follow up visit .Office was shut down like no one was ever there at all.No other Dr would take me Finally I got Kaiser after 16 months suffer very bad had torn meniscus and need a knee replacement..Suffer really bad because of him.Wish I could sue him for all the pain and suffering because they never finish my knees or gave me a referral just let me suffer. Don't trust him

Dr Rubin was very helpful with diagnosing a ongoing issue my father had been dealing with. Then the care we received to allow him to get back to work was amazing.
