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.
