Dr Robbins performed an endovenous laser ablation on both my legs. The results were very disappointing. When the ultrasound was done, the technician noted that I had an extra vein on one leg and both veins would be taken care of. He skipped treatment on one of the veins during the procedure. At the next appointment we complained about missing the vein. I have a phone recording of the office admitting they missed it but that they would take care of it. After several return visits, no attempts were made to correct it even though they assured us they would work to resolve the issue. Shortly thereafter we were informed that we were being dismissed as his patient with the issue still being unresolved. Even though he had admitted missing a major vein, it was no longer worth his time to resolve this issue. My husband has been an anesthesia provider for 43 years and states most doctors are willing to work with patients to resolve issues rather than dismiss them out of hand. Not recommended!!

BEWARE!!!! I was given a prcedure that was not needed. I feel Dr. Robbins more than took advantage of me during my visits to his practice. I had 4 Sonograms done on an arm to check for blood clots. All 4 came back perfectly fine. I was then told I should have an Angiogram performed there in order to look further. After the Angiogram and EVERYTHING looking perfect (Dr. Robbins own words) I went to another Dr.'s office where he performed a simple X-Ray. In that X-Ray it showed I had two severly b

I will not return. It has to do with how his office handles appointments. They canceled my appointment because I didn't confirm we'd be there the day before it was set. We were out of town and returned just to keep the appointment. Drove 40 miles to find out we no longer had an appointment. What an amateur way to run an office. He was great at the previous appointments. His office policy not so much. I'm 75 and have never missed a doctor's appointment, including previous appointments with him.
