I feel very lucky to have Dr. Rubenstein as my oncologist. I had hoped to go through my entire life without ever having to use the phrase "my oncologist." It's very difficult to accept a diagnosis of cancer even if it's highly likely that it won't be fatal. Dr. Rubenstein is a very good listener; he's figured out how to motivate me when it's time for me to make a decision about treatment or have a test. He goes out of his way to do little things that make a huge difference. For example he wrote an email to radiology asking that they use a small-gauge needle on my next MRI because I'm afraid of needles. I find it easy to talk to him. He's sensitive and non-judgemental. For most people it might be enough to have a doctor who's at the top of his field but I demand more in addition to that. I'm grateful to have found that in Dr. Rubenstein.

I had a list of 15-20 questions about my condition and how our treatment plan might change because of COVID-19. We had a very productive discussion. Dr. Rubenstein gave me detailed answers to all of my questions. He's a very good listener and that's one of the most important qualities a doctor can have. I really appreciate his ability to think outside the box and find solutions for the unique problems I present.

Doctor can't hear my voice though zoom I can hear his voice we used the cell phone and zoom at the same time. I need to learn about voice in zoom.

I appreciated how thoughtful Dr. Rubenstein was in his approach to my treatment. He listened to my fears and he treated me with a great deal of respect. He also explained the rationale for his approach. He gave me detailed medical information about my condition and the treatment options because he knew I was going to need it.

Dr. James Rubenstein saved my life in [year redacted] from CNS lymphoma and was one of the few CNS Lymphoma experts who could do so. My wife and daughter owe our intact family to him. He is an awesome physician in every way.
