I was treated by Dr. Robinson for a lobectomy at Albany Medical Center. At first, I was very nervous about the procedure, but the first time I met him he immediately put me at ease and constantly reassured me about the operation. He conveyed a great deal of confidence and competence and made a sound diagnosis for me. The operation went exactly how it was described to me, I highly recommend him as a surgeon. I cannot thank him enough for the service he provided me. God Bless him Salvatore Vona

I had no pain, and went to work a few days later! But he told me that I had to come to his office yearly so he could monitor the remaining half to prevent t
