No malpractice history found for Tennessee.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Robbie D. Lowery | Semmes Murphey Neurologic and Spine Institute
Robbie Lowery's interest in the care of neurosurgical patients began with her first employment as a registered nurse in the neuro intensive care unit at Baptist Hospital in 1980. While a staff nurse at the hospital, she provided post-operative care for patients undergoing cranial surgery. In 1983, she started her career with Semmes Murphey Clinic (SMC) as a nurse for Dr. James T. Robertson and Dr. Jon Robertson (both neurosurgeons at SMC.) During that time, she was introduced to a variety of neurosurgical conditions in addition to caring for patients in the outpatient setting. From 1985-1991 she worked with neurosurgery at The Regional Medical Center caring for patients with spine and head trauma. Then in 1991 she returned to Semmes Murphey to work full time with Dr. Jon Robertson, who specialized in the care of skull base tumors.
While she had learned a great deal from her various training, she wanted to further her education and returned to The University of Memphis to complete the requirements for certification as a family nurse practitioner (FNP). After passing FNP boards in 2008, she started working as a nurse practitioner at SMC. Her practice is limited to new patient evaluations for spine pain, carpal tunnel symptoms and post-concussion follow ups in the pediatric population.
When away from work, she enjoys working in her yard, travelling and going to University of Memphis Basketball games.
