Know Your Doctor:  Thanks for agreeing to be part of the Know Your Doctor website and supporting our charity partner Heart Gift.


Dr. Robbins:  I've heard really good things from my partners about the experience and look forward to working with Know Your Doctor SA. This is a unique opportunity for physicians and will be a nice venue for families to learn about doctors and how to improve their health.



Know Your Doctor:  Describe your medical education.


Dr. Robbins:  I graduated Philadelphia School or Osteopathic Medicine in 1984. I then did my medical training in the Philadelphia area at the Deleware Valley Medical Center. The Air Force located me in San Antonio and I've been here since 1985.  I'm board certified in family practice and osteopathic medicine. After retiring from the Air Force in 2000, I began practicing wound care and hyperbaric medicine at the Center for Wound Care.

 

Know Your Doctor:  Please talk to us about the types of medial services you currently provide.


Dr. Robbins:  We are dedicated to taking care of patients who have wounds that are not healing. Diabetics face these problems, or sometimes we'll see a surgical wound that despite best efforts won't heal. We see crush patients and those who have radiation treatment issues.

 

To begin, we find out what the underlying cause of the wound is and work very closely with the referring physician. We also work with other specialists. For example, we'll work with a physical medicine doctor if a person is having trouble walking, or we'll collaborate with a plastic suregeon if tissue grafting services are needed. At our center, we have hyperbaric chambers which we use about 15 percent of the time. Mostly, we will work very carefully to remove dead tissue so newer tissue can grow back. Ultimately, the patient's body heals itself. What we do is employ every technique we can to facilitate that healing.



Know Your Doctor:  Tell us a little about your thoughts and feelings of being a physician.


Dr. Robbins: The physician and staff relationship with the patient is of utmost importance. Most patients come in with some fear, or maybe thoughts that we're going to hurt them in some way. They're also dreading news that maybe they'll lose a limb or even their life. To help them overcome those fears, we put them in the driver's seat of their healthcare. We address issues of pain control, odor, wound drainage and then family involvement. We have a great staff of nurses, LVNs, technicians and office staff that make patients very comfortable during their treatments, and sometimes become a second family to the patient. 

 

It is so rewarding to see the person go from injury and fear to closure and content. 

 

Know Your Doctor:  What do you do to relax?


Dr. Robbins When time allows, I love to play golf and tennis. I also really enjoy just hanging out with family and friends in our back yard. Once a month, I have the pleasure of being able to meet with senior physician leaders to talk about how to improve medical care for the people of our community. 

Dr. Mark Robbins, M.D.
