Dr. Robinson is only accepting new sports medicine patients at this time. 

Dr. Robinson was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT. Before enrolling at the University of Utah, he took a two-week high school senior trip to the village of Sepamac in Guatemala where he taught basic first aid to the Mayan descendants of the village. While in college, he volunteered for a variety of projects, notably teaching science to a 5th grade class, and serving as a mentor and a teacher at the Salt Lake City jail and at the Shriners Hospital. 

During the 2002 Winter Olympics hosted by Salt Lake City, Dr. Robinson worked as an emergency medical technician. While attending medical school, he volunteered to be a manager at the Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured in downtown Milwaukee, WI. During his tenure as a manager at the clinic, he was able to help implement a new sub-clinic designed to target patients with chronic disease to improve their health and access to care. He continued improving the triad of access to care, effective care through preventative medicine, and the cost effectiveness of care during his residency at OHSU. After residency his love for sports was a driving force to begin a fellowship in sports medicine at OHSU.

Dr. Robinson is an avid runner and loves spending time working out with his wife. Living at the foot of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains gave him his thirst for outdoor living. He also enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, and hiking.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    My wait time was about two minutes! I was in and out in less than 10 minutes. Very quick service. Just the way I like it.

  • Dec 30, 2018

    Dr Robinson was personable and obviously interested in my running experience and chief complaint of joint paint. In fact, I selected him as my provider due to his sports med expertise. However, I worry that the appointment focused too much on that one issue at the expense of a more comprehensive review of my health. A couple things could have improved my experience. First, clearer communication about what to expect at an "establishing care" appointment. I was expecting basic blood labs to get a baseline, a comprehensive physical exam, and a full review of my medical history. These did not happen (which is fine if they don't normally happen at the first apt) and we quickly focused on my joint pain. Second, due to my misunderstanding of what to expect, I was also confused when my MA asked if I was there for an annual. Not realizing this was different than an establishing care appointment, I asked what an annual entailed and said sure when it matched my understanding of an establishing care appointment. Dr Robinson's first words to me when he entered the room were a rather rapid explanation of why an annual was not covered on my insurance and not needed.

  • Dec 28, 2018
