Meet Dr. Eric Robbins, M.D.

Acknowledging you or a family member may have a psychiatric disorder can be very distressing. A range of emotions such as shame, guilt, fear or denial can often impede moving forward and getting the right help. With the vast array of mental health professionals in the community, deciding on the right type makes the decision all the more challenging.


Meeting with a psychiatrist is a prudent first step when entering into mental health treatment. As a psychiatrist, I am the only mental health professional who has had the benefit of studying both medicine and psychology. I integrate this information when formulating the best treatment plan for you. My additional training with children and adolescents has helped tremendously in fully understanding the gamut of mental health disorders and the way they manifest from early to late age. Choosing a competent psychiatrist is a choice you will make with caution and care. Creating an atmosphere of openness, comfort and respect is what I strive for in my practice. This atmosphere leads to the shedding of the walls, and a direct examination into the inner workings of the mind. My easy going nature has the tendency to make my patients feel very comfortable, as if they are confiding in a friend. The depth and inquisitive way questions are asked assure them they are in the hands of a caring and knowledgeable clinician. In my practice, I follow an evidence based approach to diagnoses and treatment.

Here's what other patients have said

Patricia

I am grateful to have found Dr. Robbins. I had my initial consultation today and was impressed by his patience, knowledge, ability to listen, down to earth stance and desire to help.

Tom

A family member was suffering from various issues. We were desperately searching for a psychiatrist who could provide help and relief. I would have to say after a couple of months, there has been a drastic improvement. I honestly can't believe how quickly such improvement happened.

Shirley

All the staff are very friendly, and welcoming. I can't say enough of how much Dr. Robbins has helped and guided me. He really listens. One of a kind!
