Availability

The Dr. surprised me at how available he was to me. I asked a lot of questions about him, in and out of the hospital. Most said that he knew what he was doing and was very accurate.

Excellent surgeon

We were referred to Dr. Rubenstein last fall when my father was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He performed a prostectomy and neobladder surgery, which was extremely complicated. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Rubenstein was wonderful. He was so patient, taking the time to sit with my mother, father, and I at each visit and explain in detail the options, risks, and possible outcomes, while remaining completely honest and straightforward. He answered every question we had with professionalism and compassion. Today, four and a half months later, my father is cancer free. It has been a trying rehabilitation process but Dr. Rubenstein has personally guided my father through every phase of it, making himself available whenever he has needed him. He is an unbelievably gifted surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone.

Quite Rude

I had a patient of his who I was seeing in follow up. This patient had significant complications so I attempted to contact him. When he called back he was incredibly rude both to my staff and to myself. Speaking with the patient, it became clear he is often like this with him as well. I suspect that he is not a pleasant person to work with and would hesitate to refer any of my patients or friends to him in the future. His office staff was incredibly pleasant, however.

Caring and Dedicated

I felt compelled to write a review after reading some of the other people's comments. Dr. R is extremely dedicated and cares deeply about his patients. I have been his patient since he first began practicing and he has never disappointed me . Once (many moons ago), I was operated on in the middle of the night, just so I wouldn't have to writhe in pain . It was such a relief. I don't know many doctors that do non-emergency surgery in the middle of the night . So I don't know who these other people have been dealing with but it certainly ISN'T the Dr R that I admire and respect.

One Star

So unpropfessional. The administrative staff began swearing and yelling when I asked if she would refax my referral request. Staff shouted "I don't work for her. " Take the crazy out of here" I was in tears by the time the MD took me in his office. He calmly apologized and stated "i'll take care of it.". I felt he really did not care at what I reported regarding his staffs behavior. She used the f*** word so many times when yelling. To make matters worse. When I was waiting for the MD to come in to do a procedure, I got a text. It was from an annonymous caller statoing"If you could read my mind right now, you would get shy." Right after this text the MD walked in the room to do the procedure. When the procedure was done. MD stated "your an nurse and know your body, we don't have to make a follow up just call me if you need me. No follow up?? He was trying to keep me away from the administrative assistant that had the unbeleivable behavior. So after being tramatized, I say run don't walk from Dr Rubenstein.
