Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    This was my first visit to H. Rubin, I couldn't have left any happier. Dr. Dean and the entire staff made me feel extremely welcome at their office. I could not have asked for a more professional experience.

    I had the opportunity to have a visual exam with Dr Steve Dean. Dr Dean was thorough, professional and patient. Additionally, he assisted with the selection of an appropriate frame and lens. The staff was very friendly and assistive. My vision is essential to the performance of my profession. I highly recommend Dr Steve Dean's practice at H Rubin.
