The relationship between physician and patient is very important and can be personal. We want you to be able to connect with your doctor at a personal level to create a lasting relationship. In this edition of our blog, we asked Dr. Robinson several questions about her personal life so you can get to know him better. Enjoy!

What is the coolest/most unique thing you have ever done?

One of the coolest things I have ever done was hiking in Nepal with the views of Mt. Everest and the Himalayas off in the distance, as well as meeting the amazing people of Nepal. It was also entertaining to see the yaks loaded down with supplies and to hear their bells signaling their approach.”

I would say any trip that requires hiking and exploring, being exposed to new places and cultures.”
