You need only to read the adjectives and phrases of highest praise applied to Dr. Gregg Robinson by his Shine A Light nominator and colleague, Dr. Kim Rogers, to know that Dr. Robinson is not only worthy of the program’s recognition, but he’s someone we want to get to know better!
Dr. Robinson has worked as the sole GP-Surgeon in Rocky Mountain House for most of the past 30 years. “He has been invaluable for the ongoing, thriving obstetrical and anesthesia program, too,” says Dr. Rogers.
Dedicated to and respectful of his field and his patients, Dr. Robinson has “stayed current on surgical and endoscopic training and advancements for rural surgery,” Dr. Rogers adds.
“In times when it has seemed that help (in terms of another surgeon) has been on the horizon, Dr. Robinson has gracefully offered mentorship to new recruits,” continues Dr. Rogers. “And when tragedy or circumstance has left him as the only surgeon again, he has gracefully taken back up the torch to provide an invaluable service to his community.”
This grace and dedication have carried Dr. Robinson through times of great adversity, including challenges with his own health.
“Dr. Robinson is so deserving of recognition by Shine A Light!”
Legacy of commitment
As Dr. Robinson approaches retirement, “the legacy of commitment to his community and his patients will long endure,” adds Dr. Rogers.
