      My surgeon referred me to doctor Robinson for a follow-up pain level test. Dr. Robinson expressed to me rather gruffly that he felt the test my doctor recommended was "barbaric" and he would never perform such a test. While I appreciate his honesty, his response was delivered very rudely and his disposition was quite frightening as he spoke..

      Dr. Robinson is very compassionate and thorough. He takes time with all his patients. I have referred several family members to him. Everyone has been satisfied. He explains treatment in terms you can understand and work with you on a treatment to fit you.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
