Dr. Rubin is such an amazing doctor. She listens attentively and with so much support. She weighs everything carefully and helps find a good solution. I wish all doctors were like her combining thoughtfulness, attention to the whole person, great diagnostic skills, readiness to refer one to a specialist when she isn't sure, firm resistance to prescribe unnecessary tests and meds, but making sure they are done when they are needed, and a great sense of humor. I hope she'll practice medicine for a long, long time to come.

I am so excited to finally have a doctor that isn't all about medication! From my first impression, Dr. Rubin was very attentive, knowledgeable, and focused on prevention rather than popping pills. I have been looking for a doctor like her for years and I'm thrilled to have her as my new PCP.

I felt like this doctor was more interested in filing the insurance claims properly than checking me out. I initially wanted to do an obgyn check up but also needed to get some medications refilled since I had switched doctors. By the time we were done talking about my history and getting my medicines ordered to the pharmacy the dr said we were done and she could not also do the check up. I really felt rushed out even though I was literally the only person there. I also did not appreciate that the front desk didn't tell me beforehand that if I classified this visit as an annual check up it would be free. I ended up paying a copay to have my weight taken and my meds refilled. Should have stuck with my old doctor. Will not be returning.

Dr. Rubin is one of the best general physicians I've had. She's very sweet, patient, and direct. I'm 24 and still a huge baby about getting vaccines and she's even super accommodating about that! The wait time is generally respectable with the exception of one time I arrived a bit late and had to wait longer than usual. I've been to both her offices and the staff and receptionists are always friendly as well. I also love that I can see her as my general physician and my OBGYN, keeps things much easier!

Excellent as always. Very thoughtful and thorough. I particularly like that Dr. Rubin avoids unnecessary tests and is cautious about prescribing medication (although when she does send one to get a test and says "get that soon," it means that something really needs attention and one better do as she says...). This time she had a medical student there. Dr. Rubin gave the student background and context information, as she explained what she was doing and why. While Dr. Rubin was fully focused on examining me, she also always checked whether the student was following her explanations. Turns out Dr. Rubin is not only an amazing doctor, but also a tremendous teacher.
