After completing his residency at Johns Hopkins, Robbins opened
a clinic in the inner harbor area of Baltimore. He worked as a
general practitioner fro 20 years before the chronic budget
shortfalls and the practices of the newly powerful HMO's forced
him to close the clinic's doors. Strictly out of academic
curiosity, he became an Assistant Coroner for the Arlington, VA,
police department, where he worked his way up to Coroner in two
years. After putting together four years in Arlington, he
transferred to Las Vegas. He has been the Chief Medical Examiner
in Las Vegas for the past five years.
Born to a single mother in an era where everyone came from a
two-parent household, Robbins spent his life as an underdog.
Spurned by his peers, he took solace in books from an early age,
discovering an aptitude for academia. His mother worked as a
nurse, so Robbins spent most nights in the local hospital. The
doctors and nurses unofficially adopted him and they not only
gave him free reign of the premises, they allowed him to assist
in any number of activities the chronically short-handed
facility required. From stocking shelves as ten-year-old, to
assisting in simple surgeries as a teenager, Robbins knew more
about the hospital than some of the doctors who worked there.
And he put that knowledge to work when he opened his own clinic.
Many years of fighting the good fight eventually left him
drained and after shifting into what felt like a natural career
change for him (medicine is all about life and death), he and
his wife and their three children packed up and moved to Las
Vegas. He's free to purse his own interests, both at work and at
home, and that's the way he likes it right now. His medical
career has somewhat followed the path he envisioned for himself,
but his personal life has exceeded his wildest expectations. his
wife and his children have replaced books as the center of his
life and nothing will ever change that.
