If I could give Dr Robinson and his nurse Kelly a million stars I would. if any one is suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia then you know that is the worst pain ever. I dealt with it for 2 long years I was given medication to treat my symptoms but in the course of 2 years the medicine with stop working only to be given stronger doses. I know I was at my wits end when I found Dr. Robinson’s website. I emailed his office in desperation and boy did they hear my cry. They replied with a phone call the next day which was a Thursday I believe and Friday I was doing my post op for surgery that Monday. I’m still recovering but that dreadful pain is gone.

I cannot day enough about my gratitude for Dr. Robinson, his P.A., Kelly, and his staff. Their compassion and care for my nerve pain was truly remarkable. When I think of how they all went beyond what could be expected, I know they were an answer to many prayers! God Bless!

Dr James Robinson keeps you informed and reassures you that he has it under control. He was referred to,me by my hearing Dr, because my hearing was really bad in one ear, he did a brain mri and sure enough I have a acustic neroma which I was told that the best course of action would be to have the gamma gun on my right ear. So I had that done and had another MRI and it had not changed. I had another mri about 9 months later and it has reduced in size. dr Robinson told me that he had never had a neroma that ever came back that had reduced that much, so now I am waiting for my last MRI before he release 's me this is a 2 year check up to make sure it has not tried to come back. He told me if it had not grown any that have a good life and forget about it. Of course I had to ask what if it cam back, he said that we would do surgery.

In the biggest mistake of my life, I chose Dr. Robinson to perform two craniotomies. I am now left with complete left-side facial paralysis. I have undergone one operation (eye) to clean up Dr. Robinson’s failed operation, with two additional complicated nerve transfers/operations scheduled. I could not see through Dr. Robinson’s bravado, salesmanship, and feigned confidence. I should have known better than to blindly trust this self-proclaimed "brain expert".

I met Dr. Robinson two years ago for brain surgery to remove a benign tumor that was causing me to go blind. Two years later I had to have another brain surgery, this time MVD for Trigeminal Nueralgia. I would NEVER have chosen any other surgeon than Dr R as he is ultimately the very best. I survived both surgeries (always a plus), I have my full sight back and I no longer suffer from debilitating headaches. His AP, Nurse and office staff are just fabulous.

I am only 3 days post decompression surgery. But Dr Robinson and his staff were amazing. I was up walking the very next day and in the comfort of my home on Day 3. I know it is early but I can already see the changes since my operation. I am forever grateful to the staff at the Brain Expert and I am finally looking forward to a somewhat symptom free life style from Chiari Malformation. Thank you Dr. Robinson and Kelly!

I would highly recommend Dr. Robinson to any patient suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia. I suffered from nerve pain for 2 years. When I had my first appointment with Dr. Robinson, he consulted with me and spent almost an hour discussing all of the options and answering my questions. He was very detailed and I could tell he has a passion for this work. He is extremely knowledgeable and very experienced in his field. He performed the MVD procedure for my TN and it was a success. Thank You!

I was an admitted patient when I was introduced to Dr. Robinson. This has proved to be one of the worst decisions made. He doesn’t return calls or discuss updates. Most of his staff are very rude. Do your research and choose someone who treats you like you and your health matter.
