Dr.Robinson has been my Doctor for 5 years.I am 62 years old, and have had 3 back surgeries.The last one was a lumbar fusion 2 years ago.I continued having back and leg pain.Dr.Robinson found the source of the problem, treated it, and I'm back being active again! He is very compassionate and I have full confidence in him.I have always been treated with care and respect from him and his office staff. The first of May I got shingles.Dr Robinson did 2 nerve blocks & I'm much better!

I have dealt with Chronic Pain for almost 30 years. I have been sent to 21 specialist by my local doctor, and this was followed by 8 Years at Mayo Clinic. I was referred to Dr. Robinson in 2011, and my life changed drastically. He like the other doctors wanted to help, but I had a complicated nerve entrapment. He told me if I would work with him that he would find a way to help me. I called Mayo and was told he was outstanding. I stayed with him and I have never been sorry. I thank God for him

This guy is a total JERK. He assumed that just because I work in construction that I'm a drug addicte. He didn't believe me when I said I was in pain but when he looked at my x-rays he explained exactly why I was hurting then he went against everything he just said. He doesn't seem like he even cared about why I was there. His nurse was wonderful but He is a jerk and has horrible bed side minors.

I must admit I did not like Dr. Robinson when I first started seeing him, I thought he was just a pawn of big Pharma pushing the newest drug on the market, but Dr. Robinson is a Great Doctor!, he worked with me to find a treatment that worked for my complex problem, I have full confidence in him, his staff and consider him a friend now. He took the time to speak at length with me about my medical issues and found a solution now just dealing with my insurance to pay for my medication.

Dr. immediately wrote me off before he even met me, stating that because I was sitting, there was no way I was in true piriformis pain, that I should have never had surgery (which halved my pain), and that he wanted to do another cortisone injection (even though I just had one <30 days prior). I was not interested in pain medication, but inquired about a muscle relaxer & a compound creme which he said he would prescribe (and he didn't for over a month). Acupuncture through another was muchbetter

This doctor really helped me. Explained everything real good and didn't make me feel like I was bothering him. He took time to listen to me and examine me, unlike others I've seen. His staff was very profesional and courteous. Really glad I was referred to him.

I am a retired nurse of 36 yrs. Dr. Robinson is one of the most uncaring in personable person I have ever met. He never looked at me face to face...he didn't care to hear my story of horrors in my long journey in search for a doctor to help me with numerous medical extreme ly painful problems. I am not sure why he went into his desion to treat people in extremely vulnerable needed situations... But he needs to rethink it and find his compassion and remember his medical oath.Never ever see him!!!

I love going to this pain management practice! I only had to wait in the waiting room for a little bit, but was well taken care. People are friendly there, especially Dr. Robinson. He has helped me with my pain management from the start. Thank you Auburn Pain Specialists!

Very good personality. Took a lot of time evaluating my mri before I got there and spent loads of time going through what he found and what needed to be done. Did a great job on my epidural.

Clean office, very nice staff, and Dr. Robinson was great. Although I kinda knew what was going on, the doctor really helped me get relief of my low back and leg pain.
in Auburn, AL |
Dr. Robinson is in practice by himself and really has great outcomes from what I hear from his other patients in the waiting room. I am fortunate to have been referred to him for my constant back and leg pain after my back surgery. He found where the pain was coming from and now I am back at work and enjoying life. His staff was really friendly and genuinely concerned for my well-being. I am grateful for the care I am receiving.
