I took off work and. went in to see to dr Robinson. I have sciatica and bulging disk. He walked in the room said nothing was wrong with me and walked right back out.. I was in so much pain that I couldn't walk. Ingalls drs are only about the money. He haven't examed me or anything just walked in said nothing was wrong with me visit over. Patient shy

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.
