Dr. John C. Robinson, 1931-2024

John C. “Jack” Robinson was a native New Yorker and a Princeton University and Tufts University Medical School graduate. He began practicing pediatric medicine in Milton, Mass., in 1967. Since then, his practice, now known as Milton Pediatrics, has grown to include 14 physicians.

Dr. Robinson retired from practice in 2012, but maintained an active interest in pediatric medicine and the improvement of children’s health.  For many years, as senior physician at the practice, with offices in Boston and Braintree, Dr. Robinson and his colleagues have welcomed many Harvard Medical School, Mass General Hospital, and Boston Children’s Hospital students and residents to the site for training. The practice mostly cares for well children, although the size of the practice means that physicians also encounter rare and complex conditions that may receive supplemental care and consultation with excellent subspecialists available through the practice’s hospital affiliations.

Dr. Robinson’s academic appointments included a teaching fellowship at Harvard Medical School in his early career. He later served Harvard Medical School as an Instructor in Pediatrics and as an assistant clinical professor in Pediatrics. His hospital appointments included Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Milton Hospital. He also served as school physician at Milton Academy, an independent school, from 1972–2000.

His publications in Journal of PediatricsPediatrics, and Clinical Pediatrics included several papers, including co-authorship on “Pediatric Symptom Checklist: Screening School Children for Psychosocial Dysfunction.”

Dr. Robinson was married to June, his wife, for more than 70 years. He passed away in April of 2024, survived by 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren.
