General Info

About me

What I enjoy most about ophthalmology is the unique combination between its clinical and surgical aspects. Also, I believe I have the necessary hand dexterity required in complex ophthalmological surgeries. I specifically enjoy operating on cataracts because of my expertise, very low complication rates and excellent results.

"el doctor fue muy profesional y claro sobre mi estado, me dio las distintas opciones que me dieron mas claridad sobre decisiones a tomar. Esta era mi segunda opinion, puesto que el primer doctor me quiso operar inmediatamente cuando realmente no existia la emergencia que el dijo"

"Aprecié las explicaciones durante la visita lo que me permitió tomar una decisión informada. Lo que no me pareció era de dar una cita y de no estar allí para recibirme. He tenido que regresar más tarde. Faltó una buena comunicación entre este sitio, el personal de la recepción y el oftalmólogo."

"Dr. Rubinstein was very personable, thorough, and took time to explain everything to me. He scheduled laser surgery for me in two weeks, which is very fast. This was a very positive experience, and the consultation fee was quite reasonable. The only downside was that it had to be paid in cash."

"Recientemente el Dr. le realizó a mi papá cirugía de cataratas en ambos ojos. Su trato fue siempre muy amable y ágil, la atención que nos brindó fue cordial y esmerada, sus explicaciones y sugerencias fueron claras y denotan gran conocimiento y su práctica quirúrgica es sencillamente extraordinaria, permitiendo obtener excelentes resultados casi de inmediato, sin dolor ni complicaciones posteriores. Totalmente recomendado. El Dr. Rubinstein es una agradable persona y un excelente profesional."
