Absolutely LOVE Dr. Gober! He is very personable and I personally think hes the smartest person on the planet. Hes a little old school, but I think that's good. Never have to wait long at appointments and sometimes he even answers the phone when you call!

Prompt attention and great at answering questions and getting things right. Was a patient as a child and now I bring my kids to him. I SO appreciate that he often answers the phone himself or is quickly responsive.

I was very lucky to find Dr. Gober 38 years ago when my son was born. He has taken care of my son and my daughter and now is caring for my grandchildren. The ONLY Dr I have ever trusted. Always returns calls immediately and knows everything about anything. Very caring and compassionate.

Best Doctor ever! He even answers his own phone in the phone office. You call him for a question 99% of the time he gets right on the phone with you. Very detailed, and extremely knowledgeable, and he is just wonderful! My daughter has gone there for 17 years

Dr. Gober is knowledgeable & caring and stays on top of the latest research. In his 30+ years practicing, he's seen almost everything...We're grateful for his ongoing advice and for his quick response during our many after-hours calls when our toddler son developed a high fever or other worrisome symptom. We were looking for a solo practice so our son was tossed among multiple doctors and were thrilled to find Dr. Gober. He's fantastic.

Dr. Gober is an excellent pediatrician who took amazing care of my baby when I lived in Maryland. He is a rare-breed of talented, professional, and truly caring doctors who seems to stay current on pediatric health although it seems he has extensive experience in pediatric practice. He was my son's pediatrician from the age of 2 mths until we moved out of state when my son was about 1yr. My son is 4 yrs old, I also have a 22 yr old, and have never had pediatrician as good as Dr. Gober.

Best pediatrician ever!! He has seen my son for 20 years and my son still goes. My son has a rare disease and you don't find doctors like Dr. Gober anymore. He is the most attentive, responsive and nicest doctor. He is always available and has seen my son on the weekends and holidays to make sure he was ok and taken care of.

Dr. Gober is a great, knowledgeable and caring pediatrician. It was difficult to find a pediatrician that we can trust when our son was born, but after intense research I found Dr. Gober and from his first visit to the hospital when our son was born I knew we made the right decision. He responds promptly to after hour and emergency calls, scheduling visits, even the short notice ones are easy, the staff are fabulous and I can't emphasize the fact that he is very good at what he is doing.
