Doctor Profile Image

David A Rebuck MD


  • "Dr. Rebuck was very polite. What I like about his approach was that he doesn't rush some other doctors do. He took the time to listen and explained things. Some other doctors are concerned with getting a patient in and out. Dr. Rebuck doesn't do that. If you have questions, he will answer them all. He is quite approachable and is very down to Earth. You feel you are actually having a conversation with him. I would recommend himto others without hesitation."
