Ratings for Dr. Seth A. Rubenstein
Dr. Rubenstein is fantastic! He is professional but funny and very well educated. I was told that the local anesthesia is the most painful thing however I didn't even feel him injecting it into my toe. I had an ingrown toenail and felt zero pain during or after the procedure. I am an avid runner and was able to get back out there in three days to run 6 miles without any pain or discomfort. I will absolutely be coming back to him for any other needs I may have and will recommend him to anyone I know!
Very knowledgeable, very polite, really knows his stuff. He cut out three bad warts that had given me trouble for years. He used a numbing spray to stop the pain from the shot, explained the procedure thoroughly, and explained post-op instructions clearly. A very nice man and someone who really seems know feet and possible treatments and which work and which don't.
After taking just one simple x-ray, Dr. Rubenstein accurately diagnosed the synovial cyst on my right middle toe and recommended surgery, which was in fact the only option I had if I wanted the cyst to stop growing and eventually preventing me from wearing normal shoes. Dr. Rubenstein was very encouraging and did a masterful job on my toe. The surgery went so smoothly that I woke up not realizing it had already been done. He is a top-notch surgeon, has obvious mastery in his field, and went way beyond what I have ever seen in terms of ensuring a flawless recovery after the surgery by seeing me every four to five days to change bandages. If I ever need foot surgery again, he's the only Dr. I would trust to do it.
Dr. Rubenstein was very unhelpful. He said I needed to go to his website to buy a shoe stretcher directly from him. He felt surgery wasn't a good idea then asked if that's what I wanted to do. When I asked for other options he told that was the only one! I'm shocked he would want to do surgery on both my feet without trying anything first and I find it unethical that the only thing he could recommend was something he sold. He told me to come back and see him in two weeks, but I have no idea why I would bother with that. This was a complete waste of time!
I had a bunionectomy with Dr. Rubenstein in 2006. His skill made the operation and recovery a snap. My recovery was much faster then others I know who had the same procedure done with different doctors. I was back on my feet in no time because of his skill. I only wish he still took my insurance so I could get my other foot done. In my opinion he is the best doctor you could ever find for this type of procedure.
he is Not helpful,does not give you a correct diagnosis. All he cares about is to send you for x-ray and other costly tests. Provides you with a lot of non-helpful treatments. You end up buying a lot of non useful products and medicines that you never use.
Dr. Rubenstein was entirely too "knife" happy. He wanted to perform a surgical procedure on my toe and did not want to discuss anything else to try first. When I said I was not interested in surgery and that I would like to first try something less invasive, he immediately dismissed me, and was not interested in talking to me any further.
