I too thought this guy was a good attentive doctor and I trusted him. Because of my faith in him, my wife died. We had been seeking help for years on stomach/throat issues. We were continuously told it was nothing but heartburn. As these symptoms grew into bigger issues his concern grew less. At one point I had told him that her brother had died of cancer and that I was worried, he wasn't. This went on for several years. She was losing weight, she was anemic, her stomach was making strange sounds, she had back and chest pain and he told us to take tums. Her gynecologist even called him and told him something was wrong, he still didn't order any tests to find out what was wrong. He finally ordered a upper gi exam which he told me wouldn't cost too much. I questioned that statement wondering why he was concerned about the cost, we did have health insurance. He told us the test was clear and to take tums. She then developed a fever and he said it was the flu, after it persisted for three weeks he didn't take notice. Finally I knew I wasn't going to get any help from him, I took her to an emergency room. She was diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer. She died two months later. Had he ordered an endoscopy three years earlier, my family wouldn't be grieving right now. I believe his major concern was saving the medical group money by not doing the tests that cost more. There are other areas where he missed as well. She had several risk factors for this disease that he wasn't aware of. My advise, pay for the tests yourself. It's too late for me, I learned the hard way. My beloved wife of 35 years and mother of my children is gone. and as for his staff, which is a miserable woman named Linda, she made me feel I was a nuisance while my wife was dying of cancer. She hates people and has the compassion of a rattlesnake.. You can email me at tupapaau@gmail.com

I have been with Dr. Rubottom for about 8 years now. He's the most gentle, thoughtful physician i can remember. He asks all the right questions, does a thorough job, and doesn't rush you out the door. I think i'll have to agree with other reviews I've read that the receptionists are "hit or miss" as far as their attitudes. He used to have a great m.a. but looks like she's gone now. If you can look past them, he's wonderful. Last name is spelled "Rubottom" with an M.

OH MY GOD! How about .... he walked in... rubbed his unwashed, ungloved, fingers all over an open wound... and in about 10 minutes, asked me to stick my tongue out and grabbed my tongue with the same ungloved, unwashed fingers. UUUgggggg.... I couldn't believe this is an M.D. in USA.
