Dover, NH |
Dr. Robertson was recommended to me when I began looking for a new Neurologist. (Difficulties with trust and care from previous Dr.) Dr. Robertson is so great. His front office staff also went above and beyond in the transfer, scheduling, and friendliness. I couldn't be happier with my new Neurologist.

I take my dad to see Dr. Robertson and we both actually enjoy going to his office.. Dr. Robertson is very friendly and very informative. I almost never have to ask a question because before I can get it out of my mouth, he's two steps ahead of me. He prints out a to do list for you and if there is anything you need to purchase, he finds it on the internet and prints out the page and exact product he want's you to get, so you can't go wrong. I wish there were more doctors out there like him!!

I have been to doctors in Boston and Dartmouth and here to see Dr. Robertson. I didn't realize I didn't have to travel , to find of the best doctors. I have a complicated nervous system. He has helped me control pain, find out what is casusing the problem too. He listens to my issues and always is caring. He explains what he thinks the next treatise should be, and never gives up,I also have a memory problem and goes out of his way and gives me written notes and talks to my wife on the phone .

Dr. Matthew and his Staff were on time and on target. Felt like I was a valued patient. Doc was easy to talk to and easy to understand, as he explained options etc.... It is obvious that he is a people person, as is his Staff.. Keep up the great Red Carpet treatment of those coming to see you and your Staff for help. Gill

Dr. Robertson is one of the best physicians I have encountered. Not only is he well qualified and knowledgeable, but his manner is personable and caring.
in York, ME |
I had a new diagnosis that effects my life on daily basis, This was my first appointment with him. My parents were with me as well. He discussed the illness, the treatment and what to expect down the road. We all left there more comfortable the diagnosis. he spent about an hour with us and ensured all questions were answered.

Rye, NH |
Dr. Robertson was both professional and personable making one feel at ease immediately. He listens intently to you and truly cares about you as a person.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I met Dr. Robertson when I took my son to see him for sleep issues. I was so impressed, I left the neurologist I had been seeing for 16 years, to become a patient. It's a decision I haven't regretted. As a person with chronic headaches, it's difficult to find treatments that work well. I thought I had exhausted all options. Dr. Robertson isn't afraid to try new things. It's given me hope that there is relief out there. I would and do recommend him to anyone. You can tell he loves his work!
in Hampton, NH |
I have seen Dr. Robertson three times and each time was treated with the best medical attention, expertise and time necessary to address all my concerns. The Seacoast is very lucky to have him!!
in Charlton, MA |
I am amazed at what transpired yesterday. My mother, 72 years old and battling memory issues, showed up for her appointment with Dr. Robertson 15-20 minutes late. Again, she is seeing the doctor due to memory issues and was confused on the time of the appointment. The office sent her away stating "your late for your appointment and we can't see you now." Hearing this, I called this morning to confirm this is accurate. I am amazed by the total lack of compassion from this doctor and his office.
Boston, MA |
Dr. Robertson was very patient and listened to my problems and questions.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I was referred to Dr. Robertson for chronic insomnia. The experience with him has been the best I've had in a long time! He is thoughtful, knowledgable, easy to understand, a good listener, and a genuinely compassionate person. I highly recommend Dr Robertson should you ever need a neurologist.
in Portsmouth, NH |
Dr. Robertson was professional and with a good bedside manner. He made me feel comfortable and was personable. His examination was thorough and explained in detail the diagnosis and what steps were next for treatment. He listened to my concerns and I would highly recommend him for a neurologist.
