While com­plet­ing an in­tern­ship in medicine at the Henry Ford Hospi­tal in Detroit, he met and fell in love with the for­mer Carolyn Haag, whom he mar­ried in 1985.

Dr. Robin­son served as a lieu­tenant in the U.S. Pub­lic Health Ser­vice in Pearl River, Louisiana, from 1983 to 1985, as a gen­eral prac­ti­tioner. From 1985 to 1988, he com­pleted an anes­the­si­ol­ogy res­i­dency and fel­low­ship at Loma Linda Univer­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Loma Linda, Cal­i­for­nia.
