"He actually LISTENS!!! That fact, right there, puts him highest on "the great list" of doctor care. This was my first visit with Dr. Robinson. Lately, I've been having memory issues. Even though I come to my appointments prepared, complete with notes needing attention, I have issues clearly explaining myself. That is exactly what happened during this appointment! I was so upset with this, but Dr. Robinson was extremely patient and caring. He understood what I was trying to explain to him and actually was able to offer working solutions for what I was able to remember and explain to him. Dr. Robinson treated me with the utmost respect and caring, NOT with the impatience/curtness I've gotten from other physicians. I highly recommend Dr. Robinson, a very adept Gastroenterologist, especially for other seniors like me."

"Dr. C Robinson was very professional and attentive. He actually took the time to listen to my concerns, educate, and come up with a plan that we both agreed on. You don’t find very attentive doctors nowadays. Usually they are in and out and once you leave you feel that your issue wasn’t resolved satisfactorily. I would definitely refer others to Dr. Robinson. It took me a while to research and find a GI Dr and I’m glad I stumbled across him."

"Best experience with a doctor I've had in a long time. He takes his time with you unlike most doctors. He doesn't talk into a chart or have a chart in his hand. He looks you directly in the eyes when he speaks to you! I appreciate that. He explained everything to me with such ease. I don't enjoy going to the doctor but I want to go back just because you can tell he cares about his patients and he has good positive energy exuding from his pores"

"Dr. Robinson and his medical staff are wonderful. My only suggestion would be for the reception staff. I think the Receptionists should at least greet the patients first, before asking "Do you have an appointment?" How about, "Good morning, how can I help you today?""

"My experiences seeing Dr. Carl Robinson are always very pleasant. He’s very informative concerning my health issues, he’s empathetic and I a trust him and his medical advice implicitly. When I am anxious about my GI issues, he’s able to explain and say what should be done in such a way that I am completely put at ease and I trust his opinion, knowing that he has my best interest and well being at heart. I trust him wholeheartedly. He’s careful to answer my questions and always ask if I have any questions or comments for him. He makes sure that I am okay."

"Had a colonoscopy done with Dr Carl Robinson. The procedure was done in office which has a surgical room. Everything was very clean and neat. The nursing staff was absolutely comforting. This was the first procedure I have ever had and the nurses were awesome. Super nice and understanding. The anesthesia nurse from Lake Anesthesia was awesome too. Very reassuring. Of course Dr Robinson was amazing with great doctor presence. I had absolutely no worries and knew I was in good hands. Overall I was worried about nothing. The passing gas part of the procedure wasn't fun but hey everyone in recovery room was doing it so let it loose lol! Ill see you in 10 yrs doctor and thank you."

"I've been under doctor care for my disease more 30 years and essentially have had three gastroenterology doctors. My first doctor was terrible, the second I had for the majority of those thirty years and thought he was absolutely the best. Since his retirement I've gone to Dr. Carl Calandra. With two procedures under his care and a several visits, I am more than impressed with his "bedside manor" and his confident and focused explanation of my treatment. His suggestions have improved my overall life comfort. I'm so glad to be under Dr. Carl Calandra's care! thanks Doc!"

"I have never experienced such a service minded group as Dr Commacho has assembled on his team. I kid you not. The procedure I had is no ones idea of fun. However, from the first person I interacted with to the last person to see me out I was more than impressed with their service mindset and their friendly nature. I ended up telling them I used to travel frequently for work and stayed at nice hotels but their treatment surpassed even the staff at the Ritz Carlton. It was more like I had a spa appointment than what I was in for. I give them 10 in every part of the procedure. From start to finish!"
