What Patients Are Saying

Dr. Ruban never rushed me, gave thorough answers, and included me in all decisions. Excellent doctor and nurse practitioner - will be recommending to others.

Dr. Ruban was a wonderful and caring doctor.

Dr. Ruban and his staff were very kind, courteous, and helpful. They made me feel comfortable and at ease. I was very nervous and scared about surgery, but I felt that I can trust him.

I am very impressed with Dr. Ruban and his professional staff.

They are the friendliest people I have had the privilege of knowing. They are very helpful also.

My total experience with all of you was and is fantastic. All my concerns were your concerns (it showed). If anyone I know may need neurosurgery, you people (all) are the best!! Thank you so much.
