"Dr. Robbins was willing to solve a puzzle. I have been fortunate to be under his care for the past couple years. On my first appointment, I had a laundry list of symptoms that had accumulated over the prior ten years and was concerned that I might have a progressive condition. By providing context, he allayed my fears. Unlike other physicians I had consulted, he was willing to dig to find a root cause for each symptom. Here was a doctor who heard, as evidenced by his detailed and accurate documentation, and subsequently addressed my concerns. The most troublesome symptoms are now resolved and the remaining symptom is stable. I'm very happy that I found his practice."
