I was referred to Dr. Robbins by my retina eye specialist at Shiley Eye Institute. I experienced double vision for years and wore a prism in my glasses to help alleviate my double vision. Dr. Robbins suggested muscle eye surgery to correct the double vision and eliminate the need for a prism. I chose to have the suggested procedure. I see better now than I have in 15 years, and I no longer need a prism in my glasses. I am grateful to Dr. Robbins for her excellent surgical skills and care.

Dr. Robbins is an excellent physician and eye surgeon. She corrected my vision. immediately after surgery I can see better than I had since I was a child and that was 60 Years ago. She has great "bed side manner." 5 star! I highly recommend Dr. Robbins!

One and a half surgery to correct double vision in both eyes went without a hitch. I had no pain or discomfort following the surgery and did not even need an aspirin. The results have been remarkable with no sign of my previous condition.

Dr. Robbins made a strabismus surgery for our 10 month old baby. She was very professional and reliable and kept us updated all the time with his process. The visits at her clinic was the best experience you can have with a young baby. We trust her and will keep visiting as our ophthalmologist in the future.

An hour and a half into us being in the clinic, we had yet to see Robbins and were told that there were still a few patients before us. As I voiced my concerns to the fellow, she snapped at me in front of my daughter as if I were her child. By that point, my husband who is also a physician asked for us to leave. We walked out without even seeing Robbins. Shira, if this is your way of treating your patients then good luck to you in your practice. You clearly don't care about patient care.

I had strabismus for most of my adolescent and adult life; within a year of meeting Dr. Robbins, she has treated my strabismus successfully with surgery while going out of her way to provide excellent follow-up care. My eyesight is extremely important to my profession and career and she gave me an invaluable gift.

Dr. Robbins and her staff did a wonderful job in ensuring my daughter?s Stye surgery went smoothly. Dr. Robbins walked us through the entire process, and the surgery was an absolute success. My daughter recovered quickly with barely a scar on her eyelid. A great job also to the staff at Rady Children's Hospital.

I would highly recommend Dr. Robbins. My experience her was nothing but amazing. She has a very kind and warm personality and explained my condition thoroughly. The long wait time is accurate but I believe it is because she is highly sought after and because she takes time with her patients. I had eye surgery with her and she changed my life! The change was immediate after surgery. The first time I opened my eyes after surgery I could see perfectly and I started crying from sheer joy!

Dr. Shira Robbins is so incredibly condescending. The only reason we started to see her a few years ago is because Dr. Granet was so difficult to schedule with, and once there, had to wait 4 hours for a 10 minute exam. Given wait times with Dr. Robbins has gotten just as bad, and she is incredibly rude and doesn't explain anything when she delivers bad news, we will have to follow up with either Dr. Granet or leave Ratner Eye Center all together. I am just baffled at how she thinks she can t

Dr. Robbins over the past four years + has helped care for our daughter. She has performed an eye surgery. We as parents were scared and Dr. Robbins was there walking the journey of care for our daughter. I would recommend Dr. Robbins to anyone I know needing special eye care. There are it seems a few doctors left that actually seem compassionate and caring. Dr. Robbins is just that special gem of a doctor, caring, compassionate, and professional.
