Highly recommend. When I broke my arm last year the ER gave me a name of a doctor to follow up with for a cast. When I called that office, they could not get me in for 3 days. I called Dr. Dube's office and they worked me in the next day. Jeff placed my cast during his lunch. Very friendly staff and super accommodating.

Dr. Dube saved me from having a risky, unnecessary surgery. I was told by a neurosurgeon that my bulging disc in my neck needed to be surgically repaired or I would lose use of my left arm. I went to Dr. Dube for a second opinion. He encouraged me to do physical therapy instead of surgery. I was skeptical and scared, but with 6 weeks of physical therapy my pain improved. It's been 4 years and I have not had any problems and I am still working out and running as I was prior to injury.

I had to throw a fit to see Dr Dube. They always want you to see his assistant. I was there for my son and we were paying for Dube so we don't want to see an assistant. The whole office is rude and I will NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. Its like a factory, the doctor don't care who you are, your just a dollar amount to him.

Great Doc. Trust his judgement on bad hip. Would highly recommend. Very logical in his approach.

I was referred to Dr. Dube by another doctor who he has operated on in the past. My shoulder had been bothering me for about three months and got to the point I couldn't reach my back pocket any more. Dr. Dube very quickly diagnosed me with AC joint arthritis, gave me an ultrasound guided injection which was not very painful. I then did physical therapy for a couple of months and my shoulder remains feeling great six months later. Since I have been treated, I have also had my children seen.

RUDEST MEANEST OFFICE STAFF. DONT DEAL WITH THEM OR YOU WILL NEED BP MEDS! TRY ELSEWHERE!

I had arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday. Saturday night I woke up to a busted icepack and leg and bed were soaked. I tried for 2 hours to get in touch with the on call person to no avail. My instruction sheet says do not get wet! I don't know why the on call person isn't returning phone calls, but I won't use Dr Dube again.

Dr. Dube is a GREAT surgeon; he has performed 3 surgeries on me, and all had excellent outcomes. Unfortunately, he is impossible to talk to in person. I recently made an appointment, and was very clear on the phone that I wanted to speak to Dr. Dube IN PERSON regarding an upcoming major surgery. Unfortunately, I was pawned off on his PA once again. That was my last visit; I will be finding another surgeon that will actually talk to me.
