Dr. Rubenfeld was condescending and confrontational. Did not listen at all. When his office called to deliver the test results, it was apparent that in our 20 minute doctor patient interview he had either not taken notes or completely disregarded them. Strangest part of my experience is that his verbal recommendation following the exam, blood work and ultrasound was counter to what he recommends in his book. Big waste of time and money!
Rubenfeld misdiagnosed me and I almost died. He was more interested in his book than looking at my symptoms. One look at the color of my skin and how off my thyroid panel was he would have figured out I needed a cortisol test. I called the office because I was getting worse and was told I "was having panic attacks." I know several other people who have has a bad experience with him. If reccommended, RUN!!! I had a great dermotologist who figured out something was not right and figured it out.
Dr. Rubenfeld did not listen to me as a patient and was very condescending. He determined that my issues were psychological (seems to be a common diagnosis for him). The next endocrinologist I saw smiled at my experience with this doctor and said that Dr. Rubenfeld was a "character" and a "businessman." I think he was being quite diplomatic.
This doctor is very good. I do not understand these people who say he is mean for suggesting therapy. I know that many people feel that psychiatric issues are stil "bad", but it is a valid question when trying to get to the bottom of a problem. Many of the problems people have when having thyroid problems are the same as mental problems. So take it as something good and trying to help you as a whole person. Not just popping into the room for 2 minutes, getting numerous tests and labs and having to call and leave a message with a front office person and having to call 3 times before you get an answer (and being rude to when finally called back). A real RN calls you back with test results and they try really hard to make you feel comfortable when waiting-they check up on you and let you know he is coming to you next. It may be expensive but I'd pay more for good service than less for horrible service!
