Robert Rubenstein, MD
Initially, I was attracted to the field of Neurology due to the unique and fascinating aspects of the nervous system. However, I’ve found that in the actual practice of neurology my greatest satisfaction and personal fulfillment has come through working with patients with neurologic conditions to help them improve their lives.
Current neurologic practice now emphasizes earlier diagnosis and treatment of many previously untreatable neurologic conditions. Working at The Doctors Clinic helps me achieve this goal by providing easy, rapid access to first rate diagnostic tools and close interaction with a wide range of skilled, compassionate physicians across a wide spectrum of specialties. While several neurologic disorders are curable, and many others amenable to treatment with available state-of-the-art procedures and medications, I find that in all cases a combination of a caring attitude, patient education and good communication allows me to assist people to improve their mental and physical health.
It’s been a great pleasure and privilege to have met, and cared for, over 22,000 patients in my 15 years of practice, and I plan on continuing to be The Doctors Clinic neurologist for many years to come.
