Doctor Robelen in His Own Words
“I knew early on in life that I wanted to be a doctor, and I was med-school bound. But life intervened, and I ended up on a different path… for about a decade. I worked long enough in industry to realize that I was unhappy. So I decided to do what I had always intended to do: Become a doctor and do something that makes a difference in people’s lives.
“Today, after more than a decade in practice, I am grateful for that delay. The years in between gave me a different perspective, an exposure to more things, more of what life is. And it helped me to recognize the commitment that is necessary to provide the top-quality care that I believe everyone deserves.
“I renew this commitment each day by providing individualized care tailored to your needs along with honesty, respect and genuine compassion. In fact, this is what my practice is built on. I strive to understand what you’re going through and to provide care that considers and addresses all your needs. I am proud of the work we do because of the results we’re able to provide and the people whose lives we’re able to improve. This is worth our total focus and dedication.”
