Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I went to see him with a history of nausea and vomiting, severe abdominal pain that would send most people to the hospital, and I likely have Mast Cell Activation. he didn’t listen to what I said in clinic, sent me to functional medicine, tried to send me to a therapist, and told me I have IBS without running any tests. Then when he did my endoscopy, he ordered an ultrasound and they found a six mm gallstone and a shrunken kidney. He failed to even mention the kidney (which hurts me) and enlisted a watch and wait strategy for the gallstone. He is not concerned with making me feel better, doing surgery, or anything. He thinks it’s all in my head, despite medical tests to the contrary. Incredibly negligent and could easily harm you if you have something serious going on. Do not see him.

Dr. Rubin and his staff were kind, considerate, and informative. He gave us the time to talk about the diagnosis and helped us with a referral. And we were so happy to get the procedure moved up several hours as we were coming from out of town.
