Botched a simple D&C, and laparoscopic procedure. A week after the surgery I went back because I was in severe pain like I have never had before as well as vomiting. The car ride to the doctors office was misirible. Every bump in the road sent me flying through the roof in pain. Finally we get to the office and he examined me again, hoping for answers he just told my mother that "gas can make you feel like you are dying" and "I was a drama queen" (Keep in mind at the time I was only 18 years old

Would not recommend him or his APRN Heather Parnell to anyone. Recently was put on an extremely high amount of Low Estrogen and was told that it wouldn't affect me, and i have had two strokes due to such high dosage of birth control.. Dr. Dobson acted as if i was to young and stupid to know what i was talking about, and had no interest in acknowledging my concerns.

I saw Dr Dobson today for first time I can not say enough how wonderful he was I have never met a Doctor with the kindness and care he gave me. I must say if you are looking for a good Doctor who takes the time to explain everything to you and doesn't rush you in and out of his office then you should see him he is great.
