I worked with Dr. Rubenstein during my tenure as a clinical director and psychotherapist.  In that role I got to observe his considerable clinical skills.  As a clinician, Dr. Rubenstein has not only excellent skills in psychopharmacology but also a willingness to engage with the entire range of patients and their problems across the lifespan. He treats patients with an exceptional degree of sensitivity to their struggles. In my experience, it is rare to find these qualities in one psychiatrist.  He possesses a great deal of respect for psychotherapy as a treatment approach and a tremendous interest in collaborative practice not only with therapists, but also with other medical practitioners. This was a great benefit to our patients who had the fortunate opportunity to receive such comprehensive and coordinated care.
