Dr. Robin is an amazing doctor. He is kind and and listens very carefully to what I am saying. He was the doctor at the head of the team that saved my life. I have been a patient of Dr. Robin for as long as he has been a doctor. He has matured into a caring doctor who knows his patience and their conditions.
