What People Say About Dr. Roy Rubin, MD

I had an Ankle Fusion on March 12. The operation was a complete success. I can't say enough about the personal care I received from Dr. Rubin and his staff. I still have a long way to go before I'm back 100% but I am 65 years old and I feel that I'm recovering very well for a man my age.

Although Dr. Rubin specializes in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery, I had a lot of confidence in him performing hip replacement surgery on my 71 year old husband. Dr. Rubin and his staff were compassionate and thorough at addressing our concerns. Dr. Rubin did an excellent job with my husband's surgery; he followed up with my husband while he was still in the hospital; and he stayed in communication 24/7 via text, which is important to us. We look forward to having Dr. Rubin as our Surgeon again

I had a total knee replacement performed by Dr. Rubin in September 2017. Dr. Rubin and his assistant, Jilian were very supportive. I am grateful to Dr. Rubin and his assistant Jilian. Dr. Rubin is an excellent orthopedic surgeon that I would recommend to anyone. His assistant Jilian handled all my disability paperwork flawlessly so I could keep getting paid while off from work. I can recommend Dr. Rubin's practice and their professionalism without any reservation whatsoever. Thank you so much.

After calling around all of the Sacramento area for two days looking for an appointment for my daughter, Dr. Rubin was available to see us the next day. Being highly recommended by our pediatrician, we were extremely happy that Dr. Rubin made time for our daughter. The bonus was his assistant, Jillian. She had great bedside manner and is amazing! If you are looking for a good Orthopedic doctor, you cannot go wrong with this duo!!

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.
