"Let me just start by saying Dr. Robinson is amazing. I called late on a Friday evening and was able to secure an early appointment the following Tuesday. I had been in agonizing pain for about five weeks and was unsure of how to treat my injury after being wrongly diagnosed at the ER. Dr. Robinson was very thorough in understanding my injury and clinically diagnosing it through a series of tests. What was amazing was that he had his own x-ray and ultrasound machines in office which save me a ton of time and walking (limping).
All the way from the front desk staff (thank you Jai!!) to how they handled intake and his professionalism, expertise, and friendliness really makes Dr. Robinson's practice one of the best in the Bay Area! Super friendly, courteous, and kind!"
"As a marathon coach I often hear complaints from my team about feet, ankle and shin problems. These are novice and experienced marathoners alike. I always refer them to Dr. Douglas Robinson to help get them "back on their feet"! My team consistently tells me how helpful he is in figuring out the cause of their problems and then putting them on the best treatment plan. He is knowledgeable, experienced and easy to understand...no unnecessary technical jargon from him. Plus, he's a really nice guy"
"Doug Robinson changed my life.
I limped into his office a year ago, convinced, after a previous surgery gone a-muck (performed by another doctor) that I would never be able to even walk around the block with my eight year-old daughter...even in ugly orthopedic shoes.
In the last year I have gone skiing, biking, running, played soccer...even worn high heels. On top of that, I've lost ten pounds, just from being able to move again.
Doug Robinson, and his entire office staff, are professio"
"I met Dr. Robinson several years ago to discuss bunions. I procrastinated doing anything about them until 2007. At that time my right foot was experiencing pain, and I had a bunion growth that was very noticeable, not to mention not fitting into shoes. Dr. Robinson explained the entire procedure of what needed to be done and post operative care and healing time to me. In June 2007, he performed surgery which was much more involved than expected. I followed his post operative instructions ex"
"I've been having feet pain and toe stiffness from running and judo and was looking for a good podiatrist, because the one I went to a before wasn't very helpful. Through yelp recommendations, I decided to come here.
Dr. Robinson was very nice and informative. His staff were friendly as well.
During the assessment portion of the consult, he shows interest in what I was saying and I liked how he explained what my feet were like. He recommended some shoe inserts that would work well for me an"
"My wife visited Dr. Robinson three or four times in the last month and has been very happy with the experience. First, Dr. Robinson called personally the evening of her first visit to make sure she understood the at-home treatment schedule. Most importantly, when she subsequently failed to follow the at-home treatment schedule and practically burnt a hole in her foot, Dr. Robinson's office ensured she was seen immediately which was welcome to say the least.
Overall, my wife was full of praise"
"This guy is amazing! I went to him in 6/07 with a foot problem. I was heavy into training and running at the time. Turns out I had a stress fracture in my foot. He put the usual "moon boot" on me. The real amazing part was that I told him I still need to train. Since he is a marathoner himself he completely understood and got me back to my training the next day. Modified of course to make sure we got it healed asap. His office is clean, professional, and everyone there is wonderful. He is a true"
"SMI referred me to Dr. Robinson as a final attempt to correct my chronic plantar fasciitis without surgery. Dr. Robinson took a keen interest in understanding my injury history as he measured, observed, and analyzed my foot as no other doctor had. He thoroughly and clearly explained to me why surgery was the next step. In the days before surgery, Dr. Robinson continued to answer my personal questions and reassure my decision to have surgery.
Unfortunately, my insurance did not cover him a"
"After 9 month of increasing pain in my left foot that turned a walk around the block with the dog into a torturous experience, I finally accepted a referral to Dr. Robinson.
I appreciated the ability to make the appointment and fill out forms ahead of time on the web (http://www.drrobinson....), however the staff is friendly and courteous over the phone and in person.
Dr. Robinson is also friendly and helpful. He asked questions and took the time to listen to my answers. He explained the p"
"I saw Dr Robinson for my severe heel pain. He was able to immediately diagnosis the problem, and offer solutions that gave me temporary relief while we worked on a more permanent solution. He very clearly outlined a protocol that he felt would solve my problem - and very happily it did! I have now been a patient of his and pain free for more than 8 years, I bring my family to seen him when needed and tell all my friends, Dr R is the guy to see when you have a foot problem! I can recommend "
"Athletes and dancers, you are welcome here. After 3 years of limping and 2 sets of X-rays elsewhere, this office took such high-resolution X-rays that my problem was immediately visible, and surgery was the only answer. All the steps up to surgery were beautifully spelled out and executed. Questions were welcomed. Six months later I'm running and jumping again. The office team is upbeat and competent with an expert insurance wrangler. Dr. Robinson is a marathon runner who knows the value of keep"
"Doctor Robinson is an exceptional doctor. Our eight year old son, Daniel, has had deep/painful nerve pain in his foot which started 2 years ago. Our pediatrician and other podiatrists had no working solution or answer to help our son. It was very frustrating and heartbreaking not being able to find someone who could help stop the pain. We were referred to Doctor Robinson who has been incredibly compassionate, informative and most of all, he has been able to help stop the pain in Daniel's fo"
"Excellent and informative doctor. My fiancee had to have surgery done and he talked us through the entire procedure. The follow up care was stellar. Took the time to explain everything and what was going on. I would refer this doctor in a heartbeat."

"I am a professional dog walker, so my feet are my lively hood. I have chronic problems with my feet. Two separate Dr.'s, who are also his patients, referred me to Dr. Robinson. I have been seeing the good Dr. for about a year and a half and love the way he works. He is not one to go straight for the knife and I truly appreciate that. In business the best compliment is to refer a friend, I have referred many people to Dr. Robinson and will continue to do so."
"Doc Robinson is absolutely the best. I SHATTERED my ankle last May - my bones were down to powder. Not only did Doc Robinson put me back together again but he has always been informative and compassionate. I just had my second operation to take out all the hardware and I'm almost as good as new.
He's easily one of the best doctors I have ever gone to."
"What a great place. Just what a doc's office ought to be like. The treatment suggested is novel and unlike what was offered by other docs in the past - and it seems to be working. The approach is logical. The wait was short. The visit was comprehensive - and nothing like the doc calling at the end of the day to review instructions and ask if there were other questions. Wow. that extra effort is fantastic. Hello? How health care should be! If your ins. is accepted, don't hesitate to go there."
I completed Western States 100 yesterday in a time of 29 hours 30 minutes. I'd like to thank you again for the fine work that you did with me overcoming the problem with my foot. I could not have done this without you and the other people in my life that helped me.
"I visited Dr. Robinson a few months ago for a common issue based on the positive reviews on Yelp. After completing my treatment and visits with Dr. Robinson, I felt compelled to leave high marks as well!
The treatment prescribed solved my foot problem within a few weeks, and it hasn't recurred. Like a previous poster, Dr. Robinson called me the evening after I first visited him, welcoming me to his practice and making sure I had followed the procedure between office visits. I appreciated that"
""I've wanted to send you a card, drop by, something... to thank you for repairing my foot. I'm jogging, weekend up to 15 miles. It's your talent, knowledge, and patience, that helped me continue to do something I love and need to get through this during this pandemic and life in general. Take
care and thanks always.""
