About me

Dr. Stephen "Eric" Rubenstein is the Medical Director of Cancer Services for the MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center – bringing unmatched expertise, the latest therapies, and research to the Southern Maryland region – all under the same roof. Board certified in hematology, oncology, and internal medicine, Dr. Rubenstein is well-versed in current research trends, and can treat a variety of different cancers and blood disorders.

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.”

Prior to joining MedStar Health, Dr. Rubenstein served as Medical Director of Oncology Research with the Franciscan Physician Network in Indiana. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University, a master’s degree from Georgetown University, and attended medical school in Tel Aviv, Israel. His residency and fellowship took place at Albert Einstein and SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York and Dr. Rubenstein did research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
