I was referred to his practice by my GP doctor. He was very rude and interrupted me several times while I was trying to give him my history. During the physical exam he did not put on gloves and when he started the digital rectal exam he gave me no notice which obviously was painful. I also overhead him making rude comments about me in the hallway. I left the office crying. I would not recommend this doctor if you want to be treated with respect and like a human being.

I have been a patient of Dr. Robbins for 25 years. He is an excellent physician, care giver and a doctor who knows what he is doing. He explains what is wrong an what has to be done. He doesn't hem haw around to let you decide what you want to do. Ultimately you are the one who makes the decision, but you do so knowing all the pro and cons of that decision. My husband is also his patient and he saved his life.

Dr. Robbins is all about his business! He is, in my opinion, one of the most knowledgeable specialists in his field. Before I had my hemorrhoidectemy, I read lots of horror stories from patients who had this type of surgery. I guess they were going to the wrong doctor and should have contacted Dr. Robbins. We've joked that he may not be my best doctor friend the first week after surgery but once you gotten that time period behind you, he's a friend for life!! He's the bomb!
