He is fabulous with my 4-year-old twins. He has been their doctor since they were 1-year-old, and I wouldn't go to anyone else. Wait times are long, but worth it.

Should not work with kids

This doctor should not be practicing with children. I thought I was the only one who had this experience with him. I though bringing my 4 yrs old son to a pediatric doc would help with his treatment since hes scared of doctors. Dr. Rubin just made my sons experience worse by totally being passive to his behavior. He had me hold my son down for an exam. He has no skills working with childeren. His office has no toys or games which would look like a pediatric office.

He is better than others we've met

Well, all the reviews are more or less are true about dr Steven rubin. Not a smile, not a friendly shake or tone to a kid to make him feel comfortable... We all understand that after many years of practicing pediatric ophthalmology (I guess so) Doctor must be "tired, annoyed, fed up" with little kids crying or squirming or pushing his hands away and just acting scared like any child would, but then dr shouldn't be doing his job imo... Just to work because it's a work, with no compation is should not be allowed. He is a great dr, but yet again like we all saw he just doesn't have a way w kids, again I think he can he just doesn't want to. And I don't want tot bring my child to a dr like that. And this is sad.

One Star

Over 2 months ago, I started wearing glasses. Miraculously my 8 year old started complaining of her eyes and asking for glasses. So o took her to this fabioules Dr, who turned to be a psychologist on me telling me that my daughters telling me that my daughter's eyes were fine and that my daughter might be suffering from her environment that is causing her stress or maybe she was exposed to trama!!!! The bottom line, all what he saw a covered woman. He showed me every sign of prejudice person could show.
