Dr. Robins is a great doctor and I have recommended him to family and friends many times. My husband started seeing him a couple of years ago when he wasn't happy with the PCP he was seeing at the time.

Dr Robins is stellar. He provides kind, thoughtful, thorough, trauma informed care. He considers all aspects of my medical issues. He is open to hearing my preferences. He is clear and informed in his guidance. I cannot say enough good things about him as a clinician and healer.

  Apr 13, 2023
Dr. Robins was excellent. - However, getting through the phone was, again, a 25 minute wait. Based on this alonr, although my med. Care is excellent, I'd hesitate recommending this clinic. It is beyond irritating. - Again, Dr. Robins was terrific.

  Apr 12, 2023
I particularly appreciate Dr. Robins taking the time to make eye contact, listen, and answer all my questions. He's awesome!

  Apr 12, 2023

Wonderful Doctor and wonderful caring professional and knowledgeable person!

  Apr 5, 2023
It was pretty frustrating to find out the lab was closed at 3:45, so I wasn't able to get my blood drawn on the day of my appointment. If the lab hours are limited, that should be made abundantly clear when scheduling so I can optimize my appointment to only come to the facility once. It's very inconvenient to take time away from work on two separate days.

Dr. Robins is an excellent physician and has outstanding communication skills.

  Mar 23, 2023
Every aspect of visit was exceptional. Dr. Robins is an excellent physician, someone who is very caring and kind.

  Mar 16, 2023
The visit itself was good but the month long wait for the appointment is ridiculous. Y'all have your doctors so overloaded that it's virtually impossible to see them for something in a reasonable time.

  Mar 16, 2023
As always, Dr. Robins really listened and took the time to address all my concerns. He's the best!

  Mar 14, 2023
Good communication skills. Personable. No rushed feel.

  Mar 3, 2023
My health problems involve a number of inexplicable incidents.

  Feb 28, 2023
I am always enlighten and encouraged by Dr. Robins.

  Feb 27, 2023
I read his note which included a fairly detailed medical exam. However, the doctor did not do any exam except palpate my abdomen and review the vital signs. This seems to be VERY common in this medical system which I believe borders on fraud at worst or upcoding at best.

  Feb 27, 2023
I adore Dr. Robins and he always spends sufficient time with me so all my questions are answered. He gives clear and concise information and is a great listener. I am completely happy with Dr. Robins as my primary care provider and hope he never leaves!

  Feb 27, 2023

I have such gratitude to the Universe for having Dr. Robins on my team and fin my life. He has seen me through some very difficult times. He is an extremely knowledgable, professional, and caring doctor. He certainly should be written up as a "doctor of the year."

  Jan 12, 2023
Telephone for follow-up meeting--ridiculous wait and then no answer to my two calls. Had to visit office to obtain a scheduled meeting date and time.

  Jan 10, 2023
Good Experience: Dr. Robins essentially "takes care of business."

It was just a check-up. The network was having problems, which caused delays, but everyone was very friendly and communicative. Despite the fact he was running behind, the doctor did not rush things and was open to questions.

Always very good rapport and tempered advice

  Dec 19, 2022
Working with the computers has been a real problem - with passwords etc. If you make one small error the system shuts down. Then trying to contact the provider by phone is the problem - includes his assistant. I really don't need so much music!

  Dec 9, 2022
I love Dr. Robins. He and staff are the absolute best always.

Short wait time. Everyone was very courteous and helpful.

  Oct 20, 2022
Plenty of time to discuss and reach conclusion on issues raised

  Oct 18, 2022
I felt very satisfied after my appointment with Dr Robins. He is an excellent physician who is not only knowledgeable and up to date on all aspects of his area of expertise, but is one of those rare physicians who actually takes the time to listen to their patients. He helped me realize that I was approaching one of my problems from the wrong perspective. He makes sure that he knows his patient's medical files before the appointment, and thoughtfully helps the patient understand the best approach to their problem. My only problem after my visit was that I realized that I took up too much of his valuable time. He was too kind to stop me from asking more questions. I only hope that Dr Robins is given adequate support so he'll stay in his position.

  Oct 18, 2022
The provider was very friendly and helpful. I felt really taken care of.

  Oct 3, 2022
Doctor made me feel like he was interested in my and my health. He talked to me in a way that was very easy to understand. He made me feel very safe and like I was in capable hands.

  Sep 30, 2022
Dr Robins is an excellent PCP, he always takes sufficient time to explain things and diligently answer all questions. I wish the wait time for an appt wasnt so long, and that the hold time on phone calls to the clinic weren't so long.

  Sep 23, 2022
I've had very good doctors at Legacy Health during the last 37 years. Dr. Robins is among the best. Dr. Robins is a good listener, a trait that is important in the medical profession. I see Dr. Robins for my yearly physical. Although I don't expect him to remember me, I'm pleased to notice that he has taken a few minutes to go over my chart prior to entering the consultation room. I do not feel rushed when seeing him. I'm lucky to have him as my PCP.

Good experience.

  Aug 30, 2022
I am generally afraid of doctors, but that all changed since I have been seeing Dr. Robins. He takes the time to listen and talks to you not down at you

  Aug 30, 2022
Dr. Robins takes the time needed to be thorough and kind in discussing complex medical issues. I always feel heard and respected. Even though he was careful to say that he may or may not be able to find answers for me, he made it clear that he cared and would be thorough in trying to do so. I left feeling hopeful and clear about our next steps. MUCH better experience discussing this issue than with most providers I've seen in the 20+ years I've had this problem. If nothing else, being treated like a human means SO MUCH.

  Aug 26, 2022
Dr. Robins is the best dr. He always listens to my concerns, he is very knowledgeable, he is always kind, he always treats me as a partner in maintaining my health. I hope he can always be my pcp.

Allwas good

  Aug 1, 2022
Great!! Forgot my list of health questions, but somehow over the course of our conversation they all came up anyway.

  Jul 28, 2022
I didn't feel he listened to me when I said I had the sinus infection for quite awhile and I felt the only thing that would help would be an antibiotic - He gave me Sudafed that did nothing to help in 2 days I went to Urgent Care in St. Helens and got an antibiotic - by then I had pink eye from infection when I called your office to get eye drops. They said I would have to come in again - after I had been there just days before - NOT HAPPY!

  Jun 30, 2022
Dr Robins responded quickly and thoughtfully when significant high blood pressure was discovered during a routine examination. Personally followed up with me at home with a second consultation and therapeutic advice.

  Jun 13, 2022
Dr Robins is an excellent communicator.
