It's easy to make a list—a long and very impressive list—of Dr. David Rubin's academic and medical accomplishments. There's his medical degree (with honors) in gastroenterology from the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine. There's his thriving clinical practice and his deep experience with inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn’s. There are the papers he's authored or coauthored, his accreditations, his professional affiliations, his board memberships, his research work, and much more. But all of that is just one part of who Dr. Rubin is.
About Dr. Rubin
It's Dr. Rubin's relationships with his Crohn’s patients and the Crohn’s community that really set him apart. He’s known for taking the time to fully explain treatment options and possible outcomes. And, just as important, he listens—especially when patients tell him how important it is that they live the best life that they can with Crohn’s. Dr. Rubin thinks that patients should be able to eat the foods they enjoy and that they shouldn’t have to run to the bathroom every 15 minutes. Each patient, he contends, requires a unique treatment strategy, geared toward their life, and living it to the fullest.
