in Cambridge, MA |
Dr. Rubenstein is extremely patient, thorough, empathetic, and has a great sense of humor. Not only is the staff friendly and caring, but the office is spotless! The whole visit was a wonderful experience; and that's not a typical thing to say after coming from a doctor's appointment.

My experience with Dr. Rubenstein was good, but my experience since working his office staff for billing and insurance has been abysmal. They don't answer the phone or return messages, and frequently transfer me or put me on hold without any notice. One woman (who I'd like to give the benefit of the doubt in that she had a rough day) answered the phone shouting. Extremely unprofessional, and not somewhere I want to return.

Dr. Rubenstein performed a prostectomy and neobladder surgery on my father after a bladder cancer diagnosis. He was completely honest and straight forward about all options, risks, and possible outcomes. He was so kind to our entire family, taking the time to educate all of us on each step of the treatment process. Today, 4.5 months later, my father is cancer free and Dr. R has personally guided him through his rehabilitation, which has been difficult at times. He is an excellent surgeon.
