Specialties

Dr. Michael N Rubenstein has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Expected more from him

First visit looked promising. He seemed to pay attention to give an accurate diagnosis of my problem. He gave me 2 shots of nerve block which didn't seem to work also medication to try. That didn't work either. On second app. He basically shrugged his shoulders and said he was confused. He had an appointment and he was trying to get out of the office instead. Couldn't give any other referrals to see another dr. I gave him all the CDs he said his Radiologist wouldn't look at them w/o seeing attached papers the radiologist that took the x-rays adds. He left me high and dry. Still have the problem and now confused as to where to find help!!! More people should write reviews so future patients don't waste their time.

Great Doc

Recommended by my brother who had a stroke and is now fully recovered. I had some minor issues which he listened to, offered good options, set up appointments for further testing and with another top neurologist who agreed with him, followed through at the time and also a year later. Cannot say anything but excellent - my brother was right on.

Does not care

He does not care about his patients in my opinion. Cancelled an appointment 4 days ahead of time after waiting WEEKS for an appopintment and basically gave me a limited reschedule or delay 1 1/2 months. Won't even call to talk to the patient. Relies on his unfriendly staff. Piece of crap!

Horrible Experience

Was rude in the way he introduced himself, and the appointment rapidly went downhill from there!Condescending and dismissive. Didn't listen AT ALL.Was eventually proven wrong in his assessment, but didn't acknowledge.

One Star

The doctor didn't even take the time to get to know me. He chastened me for brining a list/timeline of my symptoms and didn't even look at it before telling me it's just stress! Eye pain, tremor, trouble walking, cognitive dysfunction, pain, all in a 24 year old kid! Stress? I do NOT think so. I would not recommend him to ANYONE and he was very rude when I began crying. He didn't even offer me a tissue. He answered the phone several times during exams (his cell phone) and he harddly listened to a word I said! His staff was very sweet and compassionate though, and I shudder to think what kind of a boss he might be to them!
