I forgot the copy of my X-rays from another clinic. I was afraid they would reschedule my apt. Thank God they didn't. I was still seen by the physician and they took another x-ray themselves. Everyone was friendly. Felt welcomed. Really good experiences...definitely recommend this place to others

Dr. Rubenstein is a miracle worker! My shoulder was very badly messed up with torn rotator cuff muscles and all kinds of other damage. Things took longer than expected because of an anchor popping out during the surgery but he put it in again with success. I'm almost 3 months post surgery and doing physical therapy. From the very beginning, this recovery was fairly easy, as opposed to a surgery I had 35 years ago on the other shoulder. I give the doctor 75% of the credit for my recovery because he was the one who took the time and extra care to make sure that my recovery was as successful as it has been. Had he not been as meticulous as he was, I would not have been able to recover the way I have. I don't want to have to send anybody to him, but he's at the top of my list in case they do need to see somebody. I couldn't be happier

Each time I visit this office, they are very professional and friendly. Dr. Michael Rubinstein is very informative and takes time to discuss your concerns. He is very professional and offers all options. I would highly recommend this dr and this office.

You sit in the exam room a little long.
Jul 25, 2021
All of the team (including x-ray tech) were professional. Front office staff weren't as good.
Jul 25, 2021
Dr took time and explained the procedure and healing process fully.
Jul 25, 2021
I waited 3 separate times. Seemed a bit unorganized.
Jul 25, 2021
As they had not sent the requisite paperwork prior to my appointment, I had to fill out the e-forms in the office. Good system though.
Jul 24, 2021
Overall I am pleased with care provided, however I don't see why we have to verify time and time again the information given not once, twice but three, four times and then sign again!
Jul 24, 2021
Attentive, courteous service.
Jul 24, 2021
Too much paperwork!
Jul 13, 2021
Very nice and friendly
Jul 8, 2021
Took numerous phone calls over 4 days before someone called me to schedule an appointment. Person apologized and said girl who handles Alignment patients is on medical leave so they have been swamped.
Jul 7, 2021
The x-ray tech (a lady) was very up beat!
Jul 1, 2021
As I mentioned earlier, my nurse/assistant (I think his name is Enrique) was courteous, efficient, and professional.
Jul 1, 2021
There were no "delays," so the second question is non-applicable.
Jul 1, 2021
After the long pandemic, it was good to be greeted by the young lady behind the registration desk; we remembered each other.The male nurse (Enrique? Not sure) also made my wife and I feel welcome. He's courteous and efficient.I cannot say enough good about Dr. Rubenstein. He performed surgery on my shoulder, and "brought it back!" He treats us like members of his family, and is always patient with our many questions.

This looks like a "rave review," and I suppose it is. However, with regard to Dr. Rubenstein, it is sincere. I feel very fortunate indeed to have learned of Dr. Rubenstein (from a friend), and to have had my shoulder surgery performed by him. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Rubenstein and his practice to anyone needing similar surgery.
