Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

His office is very efficient, friendly and never makes you feel rushed. His assistants are very approachable and thorough as they prepare you to meet with the Dr. Robinson. Dr. Robinson spends as much time as necessary to answer my questions. I have seen him twice and recommended him to many of my friends.

Outstanding eye care. Dr. Robinson, professional, knowledgeable, and kind, communicates needed information throughly. He delivers “bad” medical news with compassion.

Excellent at explaining conditions and procedures. Never felt pressure to have an elective procedure. He demonstrated a strong commitment to evidence-based practice and shared decision-making with me.

I went in for a routine eye exam and instead of billing the appointment as such, Dr. Robinson chose to claim that I was in for two medical conditions, and thus, my insurance will not cover the appointment, and I am stuck with a bill for $250. I will never be going back to this office for this reason.

Dr. Robinson performed cataract removal surgery on both of my eyes several months ago. I am 66 years old and had much anxiety about the procedure. Everything went perfectly, and my vision is now High Def! Dr. Robinson and his entire staff were extremely caring and patient (no pun intended) with me (my wife says I'm a bit hyper). Dr. Robinson instilled complete confidence in me that based upon his game plan, everything would be alright. Well, it is better than all right- it is perfect!!

After visiting another ophthalmologist who did not properly diagnose my eye concerns I made an appointment with Dr. Robinson after learning he was one of Boston Magazine's Top Doctors. I quickly learned why he was deemed one of Boston Magazine's Top Doctors. I was impressed with his technical expertise, explanation and the most comprehensive eye exam I had ever experienced as well as teaching me with an anatomical sculpture of how the eye functions. Superb knowledge and technical ability.

I had seen two other ophthalmologists before seeing Dr. Robinson. He squeezed me in to his clinic and still took the time to help me understand what has been going on with my right eye and I now feel confident in my treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
