A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rubin's for almost 10 years. She is smart, caring, patient and I always feel important to her. I usually only see her once a year for my annual physical, but she remembers me, can refer to something we talked about a year ago like it was yesterday. She answers all of my questions and I never feel rushed. I like her staff as well, some of whom came with her from Kennesaw. She is in demand so an appointment for a physical can take months, but on the rare occasions I am sick they make an effort to get me in immediately. I always come a little early for appointments, and rarely sit in the waiting room past my appointment time. I sometimes have to wait a bit in the examining room, but it's because Dr. Rubin gives every patient the time they need.
Dr. Rubin was very nice. However, she did not ask the right questions before recommending a vaccine for me that is a Category C vaccine. I asked her nurse if the vaccine she was giving me was okay for pregnant women because I am currently trying to get pregnant (i.e., could be any day). Her nurse said the vaccine that Dr. Rubin gave to her was totally fine. I researched it after I left the office, and it is a Category C vaccine - meaning that the effect of the vaccine is not known on the fetus. Information about the specific vaccine says that it is not recommended for pregnant women unless clearly needed (like there is an local outbreak of whooping cough that the patient is exposed to). There is absolutely NO reason I should have been given this vaccine. Anyway, needless to say I was scared and upset that a Dr.'s office wouldn't know more about the products that they inject into thier patients. (The only reason I gave 5 starss on diagnosing a problem was for another issue I went there for).
Dr. Rubin is the best doctor that I have seen in the past 20 years, I`ve seen over 15 doctor`s and staff. I have recommened Dr. Rubin to many people as a person that will listen and that she asks questions pertaining to you and your body and lifestyle and test results, not the norm for other people.
She saved my life literally at least twice. She diagnosed my Graves Disease where at least 8 other specialists did not. She recommended that I see a specialist for some symptoms that I was having and it turned out to be bladder cancer, now resolved because caught early and it was high grade cancer, very aggressive. Because of her caring and knowledge and level of engagement, I am still here and thriving. She NEVER seems like she is rushed even though she has an extremely aggressive schedule. You feel as if you are the ONLY one that is important. I don't know how she does it, it is a God given gift. She is on the cutting edge of technology with her electronic charting with Wellstar....I could go on...please don't book an appointment with her because it may take time away from me. Her new office is like a machine compared to her old practice, which she left, but it doesn't feel at all like a cattle drive like some places. She can really shine here. You always get to speak to a human there, no machines very often. They ALWAYS follow up. It is just incredible. I really think she has what it takes to be the female Dr. Oz....as much as I would hate to lose her, I wish she would do that to help even more people.
