Dr. Robbins is an absolutely outstanding doctor. I have had migraines for 52 years, along with other conditions, and have seen many doctors. Without question, Dr. Robbins is at the top of the class. His knowledge in the field, and beyond is unsurpassed, and he is always at the cutting edge of new developments. He shows empathy for the patient and designs his treatment with the objective of improving the patient's quality of life as much as possible. He is truly superb in every respect.

I'd been living with chronic daily migraines for 3 years. My quality of life was suffering. I was depressed, in pain all the time. I'd seen 5 doctors, including 2 neurologists. They tried various things, not very effective. In doing research online I found Robbins but was wary - he doesn't take insurance and botox seemed iffy to me. I'm glad I tried him. Botox shots were the help I needed. Dr Robbins doesn't have a good bedside manner, but he knows his stuff. His Nurse (NP) Brooke is awesome.

I have been seeing Dr. Robbins for almost fifteen years. Not only is he incredibly intelligent and insightful, he is one of the most compassionate doctors I've ever worked with. He has dramatically improved my quality of life, and I don't know where I would be without his continued care. You cannot find a better doctor.

He is the best doctor I have ever seen. He helped me with my complex migraines where no other Doctor could even help. I work in health care so I do not give recommendations like this very often.
in Deerfield, IL |
Other doctors he referred me to have not been beneficial - I have needed to hunt for further doctors independently.

Dr. Robbins is the smartest Dr. I have ever known. He is not only knowledgeable about neurology, but has kept up with studying the newest techniques for headache control as well as other painful conditions. He reads the studies on many topics such as holistic solutions to many problems and suggests different types of life changes, encompassing both diet and exercise.

I've been going to Dr. Robbins for many years. He's extremely knowledgeable, caring, professional, and helpful. He always takes the time needed for appointments and has provided the help needed to successfully treat my chronic daily headaches and migraines. I would recommend him highly. And his staff is wonderful.

I found him to be very knowledgeable and he spent an adequate amount of time with me. The drugs and other preventives were explained well.

When my migraines became more serious...I knew I needed to find a migraine specialist. After finding Dr. Robbin's book... I knew he could help me. The initial visit was about two hours going from an extensive 'work sheet' I filled out...and for the last, almost 30 yrs. Dr. Robbin's has cared for me on this journey called 'migraine'. Dr. Robbins is dedicated to helping, extremely knowledgeable about meds, calm, caring, never give up attitude. i owe my 'quality of life' to a very special Dr.
in Evanston, IL |
I've been seeing Dr. Robbins for more than 20 years. He is tremendously knowledgeable and experienced, yet very down to earth and approachable. He takes the time to really talk to you and get to know you. Thanks to him, my migraines are manageable and my quality of life vastly improved.
