He fixed me once and got rid of all my pain. Another time he caused pain that was unimaginable. I don't really think he cares at all! Office could be worst in the Western Hemisphere.

It's virtually impossible to get an appointment with Dr Robinson. The office personelle are rude , ineffective and non responsive. Once you meet Dr Robinson it's very much the same. Un attentive and un concerned with the needs of the patient.
