While Dr Ara Robinson may be an adequate psychiatrist; the front office staff at Iowa Psychiatry is atrocious. We asked the doctor's office to work on a referral for us to go to the Mayo Clinic in November and we still do not have the referral in hand in March. The front office person told our insurance company that she wasn't going to do it because it was too much work. My advice is to steer clear of this organization & find a more helpful & caring one that truly wants to help their patients.

Best doctor ever in his field !! I had been diagnosed with cancer. I already had surgery and had begun chemotherapy. When I started having a difficult time coping with all that was happening to me. Dr Robinson was referred to me by my oncologist. From the first time I met him I felt so at ease. I could tell him anything. I continued to see him for the next five years for various reasons. I recommend him highly.
