Dr Sobey is amazingly good!! He has helped both my husband and me after we had spent years working with other specialists. We both are soooooo much better! We have readily recommended him to friends who have also improved significantly. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing his services. He is also very personable and has a great bedside manner. In our book there is none better!

I have just received a St. Jude SCS for chronic back pain. From the 1st time we meet, I have found Dr. Sobey to be very knowledgeable, very kind, and very professional. (Dr. Sobey was an answer to prayer). I wholeheartedly, without reservation, would recommend him to anyone that is in need of pain management.

Dr Sobey is wonderful. He put in my neuro stimulator and has been a very caring doctor

Dr. Sobey is a fantastic doctor. I have gone to him for treatment over the last several years for various problems. He is kind, concerned, personable, but of ultimate importance, extremely competent. I am so thankful for having found him and have recommended him to friends who have found him to be exactly as I have described him. I can, without reservation, recommend him. But beware, he is also highly principled. If you are looking for someone to do something unethical, he is not your man.

He was friendly and kind upon our first meeting, and explained everything to me in a way I understood. He was thorough in his exam, and that made me feel confident that he would be able to help me. With each new step or treatment, he took the time for any questions or concerns I had
