Specialties

Dr. Mark L Robbins has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One Star

Dr. Robbins must not need my business. After being transferred three times in the apparently vast Brigham Women's phone system, I was cheerily (not) informed I would need a doctor's referral to see him, a rule the doctor has, unrelated to my health insurance requirements.

Wonderful Rheumatologist

He's busy, but I feel well-cared for. Dr. Robbins understands my condition and how to treat it and makes me feel that I can contact his office at any time to ask a question or a change in my medication. He is knowledgable and wants his patients to live full and active lives.
