Don R. Robinson, MD, details his journey of healing and growth in ‘Doctor Undaunted: Answering Head Injury with Hope’
New autobiography shares the lessons learned by a health professional as he becomes a victim and a patient
BAINBRIDGE, Ga. – Don R. Robinson, MD, ventures in to the world of publishing to share his personal story of hope and healing in “Doctor Undaunted: Answering Head Injury with Hope” (published by WestBow Press).
This book depicts the author’s life as a small-town obstetrician and gynecologist under heavy demands and how he adapted to the changes of mild traumatic brain injury. In open and honest terms, he describes his injury and the challenges he met while carrying out his professional life. Robinson melds the world of the patient with the sphere of the professional, offering readers a dual perspective: one, from the point of view of a confused victim; two, from the perspective of a man who has acquired therapeutic skills over years of medical practice.
“Doctor Undaunted: Answering Head Injury with Hope” is a story of persistence, founded upon faith and support. It is the author’s hope to bring encouragement and inspiration to others who are also going through similar adversity.
“My climb to healing from that injury, beginning with disorientation, imbalance, fear, and confusion, while challenging, was eventually rewarded with joy, trust, gratitude, and a growth in faith,” the author shares. “I wrote this book as a service to the nearly four million Americans per year who suffer traumatic brain injury. I hope it will be a guidebook to those with post-concussion symptoms, particularly those whose symptoms persist over time.”

About the Author
Don R. Robinson, MD, is a small-town obstetrician and gynecologist. He was raised in Macon, Georgia. As both his parents struggled with terminal diseases through his adolescent years, he reached out for direction. He found Mercer University, where he was generously accepted and educated. He went on to the Medical College of Georgia for his doctorate degree and returned to Macon and the Medical Center of Central Georgia for residency. Upon completion of that training, he entered the Air Force and took his family to serve at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota and then Moody AFB in Valdosta, Georgia. Upon completion of his military service in 1987, they all settled down in the South, in Bainbridge, Georgia. He spent the remainder of his career years as a board certified specialist getting to know the lovely people and needy souls of this area. Through long days of practice, hours of surgery, and the adrenaline rush of racing to deliver babies, he found fulfillment.
