Dr. Trubowitz immensely enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband and three children.

    Dr. Trubowitz and the MA Kim were very kind. I had a bone marrow biopsy and it wasn't fun but they were both very attentive and kept it positive. While I was resting after the procedure I received a call that my mother had passed away. Kim hugged me and comforted me and Dr. Trubowitz came back in the room to console me as well. I appreciate their support so very much.
