Adam D. Rubin, M.D. has had a life-long passion for the human voice. Before attending medical school, he was a professional actor and singer, member of Actors Equity Association, Screen Actors Guild, and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. He has performed in musicals and plays at off-Broadway and regional theaters, as well as in a national tour. He is also a violinist and has dabbled in song writing.
Dr. Rubin started directing the Lakeshore Professional Voice Center in 2004 after completing a fellowship in Laryngology and Care of the Professional Voice under the direction of Robert T. Sataloff, M.D., D.M.A., at the American Institute for Voice and Ear Research. He graduated summa cum laude from Yale College with degrees in Theater Studies and Economics. He received his medical doctorate from Harvard Medical School.
In addition to his clinical and artistic expertise, Dr. Rubin is active in voice research. He has written numerous scientific articles and book chapters, and is a frequent speaker at national and international meetings. He is the author of The Vocal Pitstop: Keeping Your Voice On Track, a concise, easy to understand handbook to provide the performer and serious voice user with the tools and tips necessary for voice and career preservation. Ron Livingston called his book, “the definitive owner’s manual for the professional voice,” and renowned singing teacher and voice pathologist Joan Lader described it as, “a book that should be on every singer’s bookshelf.”
Dr. Rubin is a fellow of the American Laryngological Association, Triological Society, and the American Academy of Otolaryngology. He is currently serving a 1-year term as President of the Michigan Otolaryngology Society. He has academic appointments at the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. He loves teaching and mentoring medical students and residents. Most importantly, he is a loving husband and father of 2 wonderful children.
One of Dr. Rubin’s biggest joys is hosting an annual World Voice Day concert in which he and many of his patients sing and celebrate voice recovery. The concert is held every April.
