Dr. Robert Durbin Announces Retirement

A Letter from Robert A. Durbin, M.D.

It is with mixed emotions that I officially announce my retirement from active patient care as of May 4, 2017. Orthopedic Medicine has been one of my life’s greatest devotions, and my passion for the practice of medicine is unchanged from my very first day as an orthopedic resident. It is simply time for me to focus on other devotions – my wife, children and eight beautiful grandchildren.

After 36 years of serving patients in our central Ohio Community, I am both saddened and excited about my retirement. It has been an honor to have cared for so many wonderful patients throughout the years.
