Dr. Rubenstein is an experienced, detail-oriented, gentle man who provided superb treatment for my ankle. I had sought his services after a mis-diagnosis from another doctor. He quickly knew what to do, provided all the steps before a successful surgery. He has excellent bedside manners, a true gentleman. You will love him, too!

Answered all questions thoroughly. Pleasant with a dry sense of humor. Since my current encounter with Dr. R and being a Type II diabetic, I'll be making a yearly appointment to have my feet checked. Office staff was polite and professional.
