Philosophy of Care

Dr. Rubenstein develops personalized treatment plans with a patient's entire care team, advocating for the latest options such as precision medicine and targeted therapies. His philosophy of care is to provide tailored treatments while respecting individual patient's goals and needs. Dr. Rubenstein's collaborative approach is intended to enhance the patient experience and improve outcomes.

“It’s in our best interest to create a comprehensive cancer care network for our community, to expand access to state-of-the-art care,” says Dr. Rubenstein. “The key is to let patients stay near home, in their community, and not have to travel for treatment. We know there are physical limitations associated with a cancer diagnosis and the ideal place to heal is at home under the careful watch of family, friends, and community.”
