Dr. Robins always listens and explains things in a manner that I can understand. I am moving shortly close a 1000 mid to south but will maintain Dr. Robins as PCP. Prior to Dr. Robins I was afraid of doctors and my visits to see them decades apart. Dr. Robins has relived me of that fear.

Dr. Robins is our primary health doctor for both my wife as well as myself. He has been personal with our care, attentive to our health needs, taken appropriate time in evaluating our problem, and has always given effective advice to solve the problem. He is friendly and soft with his approach to the problem. He is knowledgable about the medicine he practices. We are very happy to have him as our primary care physician. He does CARE for us and we are thankful. We are comfortable in his presents.

my regular internist retired so this was my first introductory visit with Dr. Robins, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. He has obviously reviewed my medical record, lab tests before coming into the room, and felt like there was no lapse in care between my last visit and my first visit with Dr. Robins.

It was a simple procedure (cleaning wax out of my ears) and it was taken care of quickly and efficiently.

very satisfied with Dr. Robins.my two visits to the lab for my blood draws were not entirely positive. Long waits, and the system for alerting patients that they are next is lacking. Either an amplified call out of a patients name, or utilizing the next number up' screen that is installed in the waiting room but not used would be a great help to all those of us who are hearing impaired. When calling the next name, the clerks never come out into the waiting rooms, and I've observed folks being passed over. It happened to me on my first visit and after 20 minutes I approached the desk and asked what the delay was for, and the clerk was very short with me in front of others and basically told me if I didn't present myself when my name was called, they would assume that I had left. I tried to explain that I'm hard of hearing and he was still gruff with me.

They were all polite, helpful, the office had a Christmas sweater day which made me feel relaxed because they were having fun and enjoying what they were doing. I hope your organization allows for theme dress in the future, the other patients waiting were all commenting and smiling.

I had an emergency hip/back/groin pain. Dr Robbins saw me almost immediately, made a comprehensive exam, made excellent referrals, followed up with UltraSound and CT results by phone immediately. I will have my first comprehensive exam with him in two weeks. He has been excellent in all aspects of my contact with him.

Dr. Robins showed great insight into the results of my TAVR surgery, and made a diagnose which my cardiologist had missed, and made further explanations of the affects of the surgery. He gave me new confidence in the results of the procedure.

I like Dr Robins. It will take a little more time to establish a level of rapport that I like to have in my health care professionals but I think he has great potential as a good fit for me and I'm glad to have chosen him as my new PCP. Now all I need is a little more time.

Good listener, attentive and technically knowledgeable (at least as far as I am able to tell-I trust him). Also appreciate the soundness of advice keeping it as simple yet realistic as possible and not jumping to potentially more complex solutions right away yet being very careful with the evaluation of apparent conditions/symptoms. Really appreciate that approach.

We (my husband and I) had been patients of Dr. van Havre and we were so pleased with her care. She recommended Dr. Robins and this was our 1st visit with him. We liked him very much and are pleased to have him as our Dr. We found his suggestions about our health very helpful and practical. We received immediate results from a test we had with him after we returned home.

Dr. Robins is the best doctor I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. I have had such bad experiences with healthcare providers in the past and has helped me overcome my discomfort with and fear of visiting the doctor's office. He takes his time, remembers details about me and my life and treats me more like a friend than a patient. He's never in a rush, yet he's always running on time. He is the kind of brand ambassador you want representing your institution and I hope you do everything in your power to hang on to him. He is one of a kind.
