Dr. Bryan Rubble was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1959. After spending his childhood in Detroit and graduating from East Detroit High School in 1976, Bryan enrolled at Wayne State with the intention of becoming a medical doctor. Graduating from Wayne State in 1981, Bryan had his internship at Michigan State and received his medical degree from there in 1985. Bryan’s first job upon graduation was partnering with friend Dr. James Corey at the Hillsdale Medical Center in Hillsdale, Michigan. Their practice quickly became one of the most popular in the city, drawing in many patients from across the area and eventually doubling in size with the addition of two other doctors in 1988, as well as an on-site lab and x-ray, saving patients the trouble of having to retain those services elsewhere.
Marrying his wife Barbara in 1992, Bryan decided it was time to shift to a different location and leaving his practice, established residency in the area of Traverse City, MI, joining the practice of his friend Dr. Jason H. Greene, where he continues to work today.
Bryan is well-respected among patients and colleagues alike for his understanding and compassion. His ability to help a patient through the hard times is aided by the fact that he has also dealt with his own personal health struggles during his career. In 1995, Bryan was diagnosed with Stage 2 lung cancer, which forced him to take 6 months away from his practice for his treatment. Diagnosed as cancer-free in 1996, he returned to work and has been driven ever since to make sure patients are confident and secure in their health. Unfortunately, Bryan was in a car accident in 1998 which fractured many bones in his body, having to spend time healing and in physical therapy for most of the year. He continued to work during this time, not wanting to let his patients down.
Maintaining the same schedule today, Bryan also has been involved with the community in various projects. He has been a member of the Rotary Club since 2005, and each year at the National Cherry Festival, you can see him as one of the many ambassadors. Drawing on his love of carpentry as well, he also is a visible member of the Habitat for Humanity in Traverse City. He and his wife Barbara have two daughters and call Traverse City their home to this day.
