Dr. Hobgood is exceptional at his craft; arguably the best in the state. He’s done 2 procedures for me, and both were with outstanding results.

The staff and Dr. Hobgood was excellent. Waited on me in a timely manner. Very nice talked to me about my shoulder and very helpful. Let me know what he think about my shoulder we tried the treatment for a month and if it didn't get any better come back and would try something else. He made me feel like he cared about my pain. Thank you for caring.

Excellent!!!!! Dr. Hobgood is top-notched. Excellent doctor. I've had a positive experience from my shoulder replacement. NO PROBLEMS.. It's been 3 years . Great doctor and personable. Sees his patients, not a Nurse practicioner. I like that!!!!

His nurse is very good. Wait time was minimal. He is a good at diagnosing and treating. He doesn't take long to examine and treat. I would recommend him to anyone with an elbow or shoulder problem. Surgery not necessary so cannot evaluate that. He does his best to prevent you from hurting during injections.

Dr Hobgood and his staff are exceptional. I did not have a long wait from referral to appointment. His receptionist always remembered my name and his nurse always answered her phone or called me back promptly. I had a total replacement of both shoulders in 2019. The doctor’s technique has allowed me total range of motion with little or no pain. PT was a breeze. I traveled 2 hours each way to use Dr. Hobgood. Worth the trouble of every mile and minute. No regrets at all!
