Dr. Robinson cared for newly diagnosed patients, as well as many patients with genetic chronic life threating diseases. He built relationships with many patients that transitioned from pediatric care to his adult care practice. He encouraged his young adult patients to achieve educational goals no matter how long it took. He saw hope for patients despite of their health challenges. He took time to learn about his patients. Many of his patients describe him as a father figure, caring physician and an advocate. His smile, sense of humor and determination to provide the best care possible made his patients feel determined to fight health challenges with a sense of hope.
