There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Robbins was very professional, maybe to a fault, but perhaps this is his style, but the proof is in the final results of the surgery etc. I have complete confidence that I am in good hands.

Could not be more pleased. Both Drs. Dobbins and Kasenchak were extremely helpful.

Two doctors examined me. My exam mostly consisted of a lecture about not over-wearing my contact lenses. This was prior to anyone actually looking at my eye. The senior physician spent about 30 seconds in the room and was literally backing out of the door as I asked additional questions.

Always concerned, always a gentleman, explains whats going on.

I would inform a new patient that they should expect an extended wait time for the appointment and another extended wait time to be seen when in the clinic. Yes it is worth it....you need to be prepared that you will be at the hospital for three hours or longer.

We have recommended Dr. Kendall Dobbins to others with eye issues. I made this appointment with him due to previous experience. His professionalism and mannerism have given me confidence in the care given and received.

Dr. Dobbins performed cataract surgery on me four years ago, and during this visit he performed a follow-up procedure (YAG laser). He was very courteous and professional and inspired a great deal of confidence.
