October 2016
One of the many things that impressed us about this process was the multi-disciplinary clinic where we met with Dr. Robinson, Dr. Song & Dr. Grumley. (We later met with Dr. Yao who gave me the dose of radiation during surgery.) They were all wonderful at explaining what was happening and what the future would hold. They recorded our conversations & encouraged questions. They presented us with a book that contained everything we needed to know - business cards, contact information, lab results, surgery info, study info, etc. Having a copy of the flash drive was especially helpful because I was able to listen to it again when my spirit was more calm.

August 2016
I believe Dr. Robinson is a very competent doctor in her field. On my first visit meeting with the breast care team she was very warm and caring. My two subsequent visits after surgery,left me feeling put off. I felt she was rude, And dismissive. I don´t feel I can have a comfortable relationship with her, even though I feel she is skilled at what she does.
August 2016
Dr. Robinson is a such good doctor, she knows her patient´s thoughts, she cares for her patients. I felt so down when I was treated for DCIS, but Dr. Robinson talked with me with her professional expertise. I was cheered up by her kindness and positive encouragements. She is best doctor in the world! I am just lack of words to describe how good she is!
