He served as a surgeon in the French army during the Franco-Prussian War. Afterwards, he came to New York City and practiced as an internist, but turned to research as well, especially dermatology. He authored Manual of dermatology (1885). Robinson later co-founded the New York Polyclinic Hospital and Medical School.
