Patient Stories


Meet Tim and Marilyn 

Dr. Jim Robinson is the most remarkable neurosurgeon I have experienced or even heard of. He treats the patient not just the tumor, disease or injury. That is a very critical fact that sets him apart.

My first hand experience with Dr. Robinson started early in the morning on August 9, 2001, Dr. Robinson walked into my hospital room; at the time I did not know that his presence in my life would be the greatest gift, in the most profound way. The day before I had an “episode” and ended up at Piedmont Hospital ER, to discover that I had a “shadow on my brain, either a stroke or a tumor” and that I would be admitted to the hospital. A MRI was scheduled for the next morning, and then the neurosurgeon on call at that time, Dr. Robinson, came to give me the results; he confirmed that I had a brain tumor. And so my journey with Dr. Robinson began.

Over the years that followed he has performed brain biopsies, and back surgeries. He directed the treatments for my tumor that included chemo therapy and radiation. Even though my tumor is inoperable, Dr. Robinson continues to keep me in his care.

Now, 14 years later, my wife, Marilyn and I know that I have survived and even thrived under our Dr. Jim’s watchful eye.

We are so grateful that Dr. Robinson is back in practice, and know that patients he has yet to have in his care will reap healing benefits. He has made such a difference in our lives.

Thank you and God Bless You, Dr. Robinson.
