Dr. Robinson is a perfect model of working with me to get me healthy. He remembers me even though I´m not in a lot, trusts my judgement, and gives me options to consider for taking care of my health.

May 2016
I have been seeing Dr. Robinson once every couple of years and he always provides good services.

April 2016
Dr. Robinson is my speed. I am an over-educated scientist, though not in medicine. I can see how some people might get overwhelmed by his jargon, I very much appreciate learning the details of how I can tailor my care to my exact needs and desires. He is very willing to explain to me all my options and answer and re-answer all my detailed questions. I appreciate that he peels back the curtain on the current state of the allergy medicine and gives me the full scoop, with grey areas and judgment calls all laid out. I have a hard time with doctors who are unwilling to do that, so I very much appreciate the time and effort Dr. Robinson gives me.

February 2016
I really like Dr. Robinson. Years ago he helped identify a shingles outbreak and prescribed Valtrex in time so that the outbreak was really minimal (only 2 tiny blisters). He´s so smart and really listens--which is why we caught it in time.

February 2016
Dr. Robinson is great. I have sent a few of my friends to see him. He always tries to squeeze me in to his schedule if I am having a problem. He always takes the time to go over things with me and always answers my questions and deals with my concerns. He even returns my calls when I am having health problems. He is a rarity as far as doctors go these days.

January 2016
I´ve experienced exceptional care and treatment by all personnel at Virginia Mason.
