Orlando, FL |
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Robertson and his staff. From the minute you arrive they are caring, compassionate and the patient is their top priority. I have had two surgeries done by Dr. Robertson. One cervical and one lumbar. I am 100% pain free which gave me my life back. I would highly recommend Dr. Robertson. He is not only a great neurosurgeon but a good person in every way possible.

Fixed ongoing nerve problems in neck when nobody else would. Rescued me from 14 or more years of agony, & am so very appreciative. Ensured that pain was managed throughout recovery. Professional with good ability to communicate.

Only if I could not speak because otherwise I would always recommend Dr Robinson. Neurosurgeons do not get any better or kinder than Dr Robinson.
