I had been to 3 other rheumatologists before seeing Dr. Rubin. The other 3 properly diagnosed 1 of my medical conditions; however, they did not pick up on the other 2 major contributing diseases. Each of my previous doctors put me on what they considered the ?time tested? medication for my autoimmune disease (Reiter?s Syndrome) and were not very informative or compassionate. I was a VERY healthy 34 year old at the time when my disease struck and was nearly bedridden after it took hold. I could get to work but it hurt! Dr. Rubin did many tests, asked deeper questions than I had previously experienced with the other doctors, invited my wife in to talk about options, and ultimately gave me my choice of our ?first? effort medication to get me better. Well, it worked! I went from days when I could hardly turn the water on, couldn?t squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube, couldn?t bend at the knee, couldn?t dress myself?to mountain biking, kayak fishing and working out at levels that I was at before this disease entered my body. This doctor has an amazing bedside manner and not only listens?but actually hears what you are telling him. If I lived 500 miles away, I swear I would pay for the flight to keep using Dr. Rubin as my rheumatologist. If you are looking for a doctor who stays up to date on new technology and medical treatment options?you found him!\r
