What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Robbins, MD

I have seen Dr. Lawrence Robbins for 28 years and there is no other neurologist in Chicago that could be as excellent as him. That goes for his staff as well. He is so well versed and knowledgeable in every area. One reason I have been seeing him for nearly 3 decades.

I have referred Dr. Robbins to many people. He is an extremely intelligent man, (he has a vast knowledge of many subjects) and is my go to for all things medical. Whenever I want a second opinion or a referral I always ask him. I have been seeing him for many many years and feel that he has taken the time to get to know me as a person. My only regret, is that he does not take insurance. I have found that he is worth the out-of-pocket expense as long as I can afford it though.

Dr. Robbins is one of the most knowledgeable and “think outside of the box” doctors I’ve ever encountered . He took the time to go through all my questions and really understood what it was like to deal with chronic daily migraines His treatment plans were very detailed and he came up with a regimen for me that no other doctor would’ve even thought of.

Dr. Robbins is caring and validating. He embraces various treatments and executes a thoughtful approach. Dr. Robbins stays current with research and upcoming/new treatments. I came to him feeling alone and misunderstood after suffering a devastating long-term bout of migraines. I know that I will never suffer like that with Dr. Robbins.

He has helped me...not cured, but the headaches are maybe 50% better. The doctor's Nurse is also very good.

After literally one year of a continuous headache, a litany of tests, and several failed treatments, I finally saw Dr. Robbins. His treatment plan got rid of my long term daily headache and reduced the number of intermittent migraines I have gotten. I can't thank him enough. I did have a little bit of a wait time, however he spent a good amount of time with me so I consider that acceptable.

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.

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.
