Dr. Eric Robbins MD.
Dr. Robbins grew up in upstate NY. His Father, an ophthalmologist, played a large influence in his decision to become a physician. As a family of Holocaust survivors, it was very important to his parents that he would have a deep connection to the Jewish faith. In Rochester, he attended Hillel School and was raised in a modern orthodox community. His gravitation for the study of sciences drew him to Binghamton University where he received his B.S. in Biochemistry. With a strong affinity for Israel, he made the decision to study medicine abroad. This turned out to be life altering experience and one that moved him one step closer to completing long term goals. The first, graduating medical school with high honors and top USMLE scores, he was now ready to enter a lifelong mission of healing others. The second, finding the woman he would spend the rest of his life with and have the opportunity to raise a family he could call his own. Dr. Robbins happily resides in Cooper City with his wife and three children.
The decision to pursue psychiatry as a specialty was one not made without much contemplation. As a top student of his medical school class, he had the opportunity to enter some of the most prestigious areas of medicine. However, his heart lay in connecting with others on a deep level and saw psychiatry as the best opportunity for doing so. Not one day went by that he ever regretted this decision. He soon realized that psychiatry was about much more than just diagnosing and prescribing medications. He needed to fully understand and individual’s background, culture and life experiences prior to engaging them in any form of treatment. In addition to psychiatry, Dr. Robbins has studied psychology, sociology and human behavior, hoping this would ensure that nothing would get in the way of him reaching his goals.
Dr. Robbins psychiatry training took place at Mount Sinai in New York City, one of the most diverse and challenging places to practice medicine. This experience was filled with professional and personal growth further shaping him into the psychiatrist he is today. He sub-specialized in child and adolescent psychiatry believing that to be the best, he needed to learn the origins of psychiatric disorders and how they develop. His youthful and playful attitude made him a perfect fit for this new role and he saw yet another way he would affect the world in a positive way. There is nothing that makes Dr. Robbins happier than healing a child and watching it permeate to an entire family.
