Growing up in the beautiful state of Colorado, Dr. Robinson was spoiled by the amazing scenery and way of life that the Rocky Mountain State has to offer. He felt almost certain that, upon completion of his training, he would return and practice Emergency Medicine in his home state. That was, of course, until he became acquainted with the City of Ventura and began his career within the Ventura County Health Care system.

After graduating from South High School in Denver (Go Rebels!), Dr. Robinson enrolled at the University of Colorado, where he majored and received his degree in both Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. Though he felt like only a marginally good gymnast, he made the Men’s Gymnastics Team, and persisted to nurse injuries throughout his college freshman year. Afterwards, he truly began focusing on his studies and upon receiving his undergraduate degree, he entered the University of Colorado Medical School in Denver. Dr. Robinson’s residency at Ventura County Medical Center began in 1984. It was clear from the beginning of is training, that he particularly enjoyed Emergency Medicine. After graduating from residency in June 1987, he immediately started a full time job as an attending physician in the VCMC Emergency Department in July of the same year. He’s amazed that he has been working in the Emergency Department almost 30 years!!

Dr. Robinson has logged over 120,000 miles cycling throughout the past 15 years in our beautiful county, and as many miles chasing around his 2 beautiful children, Luke and Emma! Time away from the hospital includes many baseball and soccer games, as well as ski trips and “ocean time” with his family.

Dr. Robinson thoroughly believes in the mission of the Ventura County Health Care Agency, and that it encompasses some of the best Family Practice residents in the nation. He is extremely proud of the contributions that our Emergency Department group has made to the VCMC residency program and to the entire Health Care Agency institution.
