Ratings for Dr. Mark Robbin
He has been the most caring doctor I have ever seen. He has spend as much as 30 minutes with me disucssion my situation and evaluating my concerns. I can't understand the negative comments about him. I agree thatthe office (before they moved) was kind of ugly and the esupport staff were only ok.
Dr. Robbin has been my doctor for 33 years. He's been treating me since the age of 12. I have always been impressed with his level of knowledge. He is well read and is a life-long learner with the interests of his patients in mind. I do admit that if you are a needy person who craves lots of attention and "hand holding", then Dr. Robbin may not be right for you. I am 100% that he cares about my health and that of my family (who also go to him). He would do whatever it takes to ensure our optimum health. However, the patient also has a responsibility for his/her health. If the doctor says, "Lose weight and exercise," and the patient doesn't listen, the doctor should not be faulted.
I had Dr. Robbins for years, he was Okay but nothing exceptional. He didn't seem very interested and rushed me through or handed me off to his Nurse Practioner. He especially does not seem to like like dealing with overweight people. I ended up finding a new doctor after he failed to diagonose a serious problem I had had for over two tears.
I have been a patient of Dr Robbin for seven (7) years now. Reading the above comment I can see how someone can have this opinion. Looking at the surface, this is all true, and I could have had this opinion for a year, two, almost just shy of three years. I think you have to connect to any doctor. When Dr Robbin diagnosed me with type 2 diabetes, we connected. Dr Robbin also had diabetes. Maybe Dr Robbin diagnosed me a little early, but he was EXACTLY on the mark. For the first two years I have handled my diabetes, weight, and exercise EXTREMELY well. This was very easy work for the doctor. The hard part is when a patient does not do well. I have been gaining weight for the last three years, and Dr Robbin has been very supportive, although I’m sure the next physical he will be more critical. I would recommend Dr Robbin, however, if you do not connect after a few visits, then find someone else.
The doctors/nurses seem good, but the office itself is really shabby and is dirty. Exam rooms are old, exam tables are ripped and are taped together, chair in room has rust spots and rips, sink/faucet is filthy, floor has debris and hair on it, trash cans are black with dirt (looks like years of filth), etc. This office needs to remodel and CLEAN-UP!! What are they thinking??
