Are you a patient of David F. Ruebeck, MD, FACS?
4 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
My initial interaction with my surgeon, Dr Ruebeck, was very positive. Women are normally sensitive to their bodies and breast size in particular. While Dr Ruebeck did not treat me clinically he did treat me professionally and respectfully. When I asked him questions about the procedure as well as about his experience and desire to perform this and other plastic surgery, he met my questions with courtesy and was (I believe) grateful to have a patient who was preparing as well as one could to become a 'partner' in the relationship. I really believe that is important: it is YOUR body and rather than simply hand over responsibility completely to the surgeon, take control and know that it really is--and should be--all about you. Pre-op visit: This went well but that is partially due to my having readied myself with a list of questions from this site! Dr Ruebeck was very patient and supportive of my being informed; it is a partnership, after all! He clarified some things for me and I didn't feel rushed through at all, which went a long way to giving me more confidence about the procedure. Although he's been doing this for nearly 20 years, it is my first (and I hope, only) time so I really appreciated the fact that he seemed to respect my time, input and involvement. Surgery Day: Fairview Southdale in Minneapolis is a great place to have this done if you are near it geographically. Parking is ample, lounges are nice (well, not the one near the surgery, but there are others all over the place) and they keep you updated efficiently through the use of a pager. Dr Ruebeck was his usual calm and quiet self, which instilled me with confidence; plus, I saw his bare arms and they look good, so that's a plus. My anesthesiologist is Dr David DeMars and he is a peach of a person! Kind, gentle and really, really good at what he does. My nursing/support staff was great for intake and everything went really smoothly.

Dr. Ruebeck was great! I talked to another surgeon before Dr. Ruebeck who was just arrogant and didn't really listen to me. Dr. Ruebeck is the polar opposite. He's very respectful, confident, and he's been voted one of the top doctors in the nation in his field by US News and World Report. His expertise definitely shows!
