What Our Patients Are Saying...

I’ve had issues with alcohol, depression and anxiety for years. I finally decided to seek treatment and it has made such a difference in my life. I’m starting to rebuild my life and relationships. Without Dr. Robben’s patience and medication regime I don’t know what I would have done.

At first I was unsure about trying Suboxone. I didn’t want to substitute one addiction for another. Dr. Robben explained how Suboxone works and how it doesn’t have to be permanent. Instead of waking up and focusing on how I’m going to get drugs, I can focus on my life. It has been such a relief. Everything in my life is better now that I don’t have that huge, awful distraction. Thank you Dr. Robben for being so caring and knowledgeable. I feel confident under your care.

Depression has made my life pretty miserable for a long time – I had no energy, didn’t sleep well, couldn’t concentrate and just didn’t enjoy doing things. Dr. Robben has really helped me start to feel like me again. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to seek help. I highly recommend Dr. Robben!
