Denver, CO |
Dr. Robinson was very thorough in examining my shoulder and also questioning about my injury. He is very kind and actually took the time to listen to me. He discussed my options and we opted to start conservative which was definitely the way I would prefer.

Denver, CO |
Dr. Mitchel was very nice to see and explained what was going on with my shoulder in easy to understand terms. The only thing that I would have liked is to not feel so rushed, however I was able to go back and get my questions answered before I left.
in Golden, CO |
I felt Dr. Robinson actually cared about me. He provided excellent care. Not only about my health but other aspects such as insurance and finances. I would highly recommend him to others. I was surprised about how they followed up with me after the surgery. Even receiving a call from him personally.

Dr. Robinson is always very polite, he is genuinely concerned and actively listens. He takes the time needed to answer questions. I have healed nicely from my surgery and had support throughout the entire process. I would recommend Dr. Robinson to anyone.
Golden, CO |
Fantastic information about my issue and what the recommended course of treatment was. Clear, concise and efficient.
in Littleton, CO |
When I went to Dr. Robinson I couldn't lift my right arm above my head due to unknown shoulder injury. X-Ray proved negative. He order MRI and light PT. Dr. Robinson clearly explained my injury using the MRI. Thankfully the injury was not as bad as I feared. Dr. Robinson took the time to accurately diagnose the condition and clearly explain the prognosis. Very professional and highly recommended from my Primary Dr. of 16 years.

It is good to have young enthusiastic specialists at Panorama Orthopedics. He is taking a progressive approach by recommending rest and a brace for a diagnosed strained MCL. After 3 weeks he will review the progress and either request an MRI to further assess the injury or (hopefully) allow me to return to my summer activities.
Denver, CO |
He's the best. He really listens, and clearly explains the issues and treatments.

Dr . Robinson doesn't care. He met me, made a painfull shut that other tech did without any pain. Was in a huge hurry. Offered a surgery. I was in big pain waiting for other appointment. Asked my freinds who were doctors in Ukraine and they told me a lot of supprising things: Special food to eat; Special food not to eat.Iburprofen to take; Make other shut than Dr. Robinson did; Loose weight; Other helpfull advices. I told their " prescriptions" to Doctor and he recommended the same and SURGERY!
Denver, CO |
I have seen Dr. Robinson several times over the past couple of years. He has been very thorough in his exams and procedures. He took his time explaining my options and suggested against surgery. I feel Dr. Robinson has my best interests at heart.
in Denver, CO |
My son had knee surgery recently, and he was pretty devastated about it. Dr. Robinson always came in with a lot of compassion and understanding, and really took the time to explain exactly what was going on, what the next steps were, what to expect... he made a really bad situation bearable, and really explained things in a way my son could understand. We have 100% confidence in Dr. Robinson. Hopefully we will never need his service again, but would definitely return to him if we did.
Arvada, CO |
Without examining me, based only on my X-rays, Dr. Robinson told me my acute knee pain was "because of your arthritis." I have never had arthritis and my x-rays over the last 6 years, which he had access to, have shown no changes in joint narrowing. He was going to just give me cortisone and physical therapy. I had to request an MRI because the knee was not just painful but also unstable. It turns out, after seeing a different doctor, that I have a pretty large cartilage tear, not arthritis.
in Conifer, Colorado |
Dr. Robinson operated on my knee repairing a soccer injury as well as removing some old hardware from a surgery I from 20 years prior. He discovered the root of my hardware problem was a metal allergy that I never knew about! His work saved me from constant fear of pain (painful if anything touched this hardware.) Dr. Robinson also was incredibly friendly, smart and helpful. If I have more injuries there is no doubt I would go back to Dr. Robinson. He is the perfect doctor!
in Winter Park, CO |
He seems to be a nice young man, and probably is a good orthopedic surgeon, but, surprisingly (to me), he got quite annoyed (seemed almost angry) and impatient, when I asked him to explain specific details of my knee problem(s). He said (a bit sarcasticly), something like: Do you expect me to spend an hour explaining meniscus anatomy to you? There wasn't even a knee model in the exam room!! I, like a few other patients, felt like he wanted to get me in and out as quickly as possible.
