Dr. Richard A Rubinowicz has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I saw him for three years and he rubbed me wrong so many times. I always have him the benefit of the doubt because his staff was nice and helpful. He told me once that he could not treat my sinus infection because it "wasn't his department". He was rude about my 2-3 yr old child being f at some appointments, even though he was incredibly well behaved. He never wanted to do anything but BOTOX. Why?? Because it pays him big money in a short amount of time. It wasn't until I moved and called for records that he got even nastier. I needed a form for a personal situation relating to my condition and he acted so put out. They said they had to charge me $500 BUT it had to be by check only (likely so he could cash it "under the table") but when I could only do a credit card I got a call back saying it would take him too long and there was no time to fill out a two page check list of symptoms. He truly has no compassion what so ever and it's no wonder half his office quit. Surely there is a better option in the area, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
This Dr requests things that don't exist just so he can protect himself (even when there isn't anything to worry about) and could care less if he costs someone their job.!!!! His staff never returns a phone calls, EVER!!! If I weren't persistent in following up I wouldn't get any answers to our questions. Most recently was yesterday, I spoke with someone in the office at 8:30 am. Asked a simple question and never heard a word. It's really quite sad; when we left his office after visiting the first time we liked him, but, when an issue comes up and you need his help, he's a coward!!!! So completely disgusted with this Dr that it makes me sick! Don't use this Dr as your neurologist, there are so many that are so much better!!! Thus explaining the fact that he only has an overall 3 star rating.
Great doctor, really recommend Dr Richard
