Dr Rubin is great, no issues with him. The problem is Dr Rubin's physician assistant who fills in when he is not available, she is not very thorough and does not follow through with requests, but is respectful most times. At my age and with my health issues, I prefer appointments with my cardiologist not his assistant. Thanks
