Dr. Robinson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Robinson "I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. After college at a small Christian college (Eastern University, St. Davids, PA) I attended medical school at The Medical College of Pennsylvania where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received the award as "Most Overall Outstanding Student" in my class form the Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society of which I am a member. I trained in Neurosurgery at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University. I have been in private practice in Atlanta since. I choose to practice in a private rather than academic (university) setting so that I can provide the best of care without needing to allow trainees to participate in surgery on my patients nor to have other trainees or doctors caring for my patients after surgery rather than them having the benefit of my personal attention."

I have undergone one operation (eye) to clean up Dr. Robinson’s failed operation, with two additional complicated nerve transfers/operations scheduled. I...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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.
