Dr. Tobey saved my life. I have been a patient of his since I was 7 years old, and am nearly 30 now. I have have always had severe sinus issues since I was a child. Dr. Tobey is the reason I am living a happy, comfortable life now free from my severe allergy problems and complications. He has performed every one of my sinus surgeries. He is gentle, listens to you, extremely intelligent and highly effective in his treatments. Thank you, Dr. Tobey!

I had an earache and extreme vertigo. I wanted relief. What I got was an hour long hearing eval by an audiologist. Dr. Tobey saw me for under 5 minutes (say ahh). No tx for the earache, refused to perform Epleys maneuver to alleviate my vertigo, referred me to PT at a different location. Left with exactly the complaints I arrived with and was charged out the kazoo. Money grubbing quack.

I've seen Dr. Tobey twice, and both times ended up in surgery. Once was for chronic tonsil stones and adenoid removal which increased my quality of life by a lot. The second was when my nose was broken and had to be surgically fixed. He is awesome, very gentle and explains things well. Never makes you feel dumb and actually listens to what you have to say. The office staff are quite fun, I really do like them. My one complaint about the office is the ridiculous wait that sometimes occurs.

Very attentive doctor and really gentle when examining me. I came in for recurring sinus infections and he did not once made me feel like any of my pain was in my head. We sat and talked about different options I could explore and I finally asked about surgical options. Dr. Tobey performed my surgery this past Wednesday and I am very pleased with the results. The pain has lessened a lot and the recovery was overall quick. His office is also very quick about calling me back.
