New Albany, OH |
My son had sinus and adenoid surgery with Dr. Tobin and for what we assumed would be a dreadful experience, all went amazingly well. The Ohio Surgery Center was so much better than a large impersonal hospital and the nurses and staff were very attentive to us. The surgery went smoothly and his recovery and results were tremendous. We had regular follow up appointments and Dr. Tobin and his nurse Sarah could not have been more friendly, kind and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Tobin!
in Columbus, OH |
I would and have recommended Dr. Tobin to my family and friends. I have been a patient of Dr. Tobin's for several year. I would not consider going to anyone else. He is very concerned about his patients as people and resolving their issues. You aren't just a number that he is running through his practice to see as many numbers as possible. Anyone who makes a choice to see Dr. Tobin is making an excellent decision.
Columbus, OH |
We are new to the area and so glad that my allergy doctor referred me to Dr. Tobin. As a critical care nurse, I am more liable to notice areas that are lacking in a practice. I was very happy with Dr. Tobin's professional but friendly manner and his expertise in the ENT area.
Thornville, OH |
Dr. Tobin operated on our 5 year old son. He did a fine job and has a pleasant manner that made us feel comfortable.
Newark, OH |
Dr. Tobin was wonderful throughout the 3 year process of my daughter dealing with ear tubes.
Dr. Tobin is a true life-saver. He has performed sinus surgery on me twice over the years and each time it's given me a new lease on Iife. I cannot say enough about Dr. Tobin and his skills and chair side manner. He has also performed tube surgery on both of my children and the results have been outstanding. Dr. Tobin is approachable and he always has taken the time to explain my issues and the options for a fix. I cannot say enough about Sara who works for Dr. Tobin. She is totally awesome!!
in Nashport, OH |
Dr. Tobin is an excellent doctor. He is kind and very caring about his patients. Both my daughter are patients and he has performed surgeries for both of them. I felt very comfortable knowing that they were in very good hands.
in Heath, OH |
I recommend Dr. Tobin to all of my friends and family that are in need of an ENT. He has provided my family with excellent care for over 10 years.
in New Albany, OH |

in Columbus, OH |
Dr Tobin was wonderfully professional and efficient with my sons ear infections. He provided great explanations and set expectations well through surgery and maintaining of his ear tubes.
in Columbus, OH |
I've had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Tobin. We discussed many options for my condition and agreed on a course of action. Once decided, the process/treatment went smoothly and as expected.
in Chillicothe, OH |
Dr. Tobin and his staff were amazing. His team at his office and at the surgical center were some of the best I've had. Dr. Tobin diagnosed my problem and within a few short months, I was on the road to recovery and I can say that I've never felt better.
in Zanesville, OH |
I am a new patient with Dr. Tobin and I could not be more pleased. It is refreshing how he does not rush appts. He is knowledgeable, listens, explains everything, and communicates with ease. I have been unsuccessful with my cpap for mild to moderate sleep apnea for some time. I was recently fitted with an oral appliance with good results, yet it revealed that I could not breath well through my nose. Dr. Tobin performed turbinate reduction surgery with excellent results. I breath easier now!
in marengo oh. |
Dr. Tobin is the best and has the best staff. After many years I hope I never have to go to any other ENT Dr. I have highly recommend Dr. Tobin to my family and friends. Thank you for your care Dr Tobin.
in Pickerington, OH |
I do not regret having Dr Tobin perform my sinus (septum and turbinate) surgery. He is very competent and helped me breathe thru my nose after decades of living with sinus issues.
in Granville, OH |
Dr Tobin is excellent. He has been treating my chronic sinusitis for close to four years including a sinus surgery he performed. Since that surgery my symptoms have subsided significantly. I feel much better and breathe much better. I highly recommend him.
in Johnstown, OH |
My 7 year old has been under the care of Dr. Tobin for almost 6 years. He's always friendly and extremely thorough. She has had multiple surgeries, which have been successful. My 3 year old is also under his care and we couldn't be happier with the care provided.
in St. Clairsville |
Dr. Tobin has the ability to make patients relax, really listens to what I say and is never in a hurry. He performs a thorough examination, clearly explains what he has found and covers completely what has to be done like medications, cat scans etc. to resolve and to treat the problem he found. Dr. Tobin always ends a visit with do you have any questions and do you understand the treatment and medications I have given to you..
Columbus, OH |
Dr. Tobin is fantastic! He has gone out of his way to provide outstanding care for our son, from identifying that he needed tubes, to skillfully implanting them, to checking in on him from time to time, Dr. Tobin has been fantastic. Our son no longer gets chronic ear infections and is much happier and healthier! Terrific doc, great staff - the best! Thanks to Dr. Tobin and his staff!
Pickerington, OH |
My daughter started getting ear infections and by the time she was 5 months old, she had 7! Dr. Tobin was wonderful! He discussed all of our options and was never pushy. We ended up holding off through summer to see if things would get better next cold season, but when the infections came back, Dr. Tobin put tubes in her ears. We found out she had a ruptured ear drum as well from the infections. Now, 3 years later and she has only had 1 infection! Cannot thank him enough!
in Newark,Ohio |
Dr. Tobin is my sons ent doctor. Very personal care given to my 5 year old son. Diagnosed his issues...recommended the treatment... And followed through with his treatment. Outcome for my son has been great! Dr Tobin is a five star individual as well as Doctor...anyone with ent issues would be well served by the care given by this particular Doctor.
Newark, OH |
Dr. Tobin is a very good doctor and he cares for his patients with passion.
Reynoldsburg, OH |
Dr. Tobin is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time with you in the exam room and answers any questions you might have. Dr. Tobin performed a successful surgery on myself. I would recommend Dr. Tobin to anyone!
Columbus, OH |

Columbus, OH |
Dr. Tobin is fantastic!
in New Albany, OH |
Dr. Tobin is a wonderful Doctor. He treated my 2.5 year old for ear tubes about a 18 months ago, so we have been seeing him for close to 2 years now. He is extremely knowledgeable, great with children, and always makes us feel comfortable. He always takes the time to talk to us personally at each visit, and called us at home after the surgery which was above and beyond what most doctors do. I would highly recommend Dr. Tobin for adults or kids!
Johnstown, Ohio |
easy to work with and willing to explain things.
in Gahanna, OH |
We love Dr. Tobin! Dr. Tobin cares for two of my children and me. He takes what could be a terrifying experience for children (and adults) and makes it a great one. He has helped us through cauterizations for chronic nose bleeds, ear infections, excessive wax removal, and also skillfully removing a popcorn kernel from my son's ear. He is skilled, knowledgeable, and very personalable. I have never felt rushed or brushed aside. He takes time to listen to my concerns as a mom and as a patient
Pickerington, OH |
He is very thorough and careful with his exams. I really was impressed when he called personally after my child had surgery. Great Dr!!
Columbus, OH |
Dr Tobin is excellent with young children! My 3 year old is his patient. He is always very friendly and explains things very well.
in Centerburg, OH |
I love Dr. Tobin and his staff. They are friendly yet professional. Dr. Tobin took care of my ear issue and sent me on my way. I work at a high school, and in the Teacher Workroom I asked a group eating lunch Who do you use as an ENT? Three ladies said our whole families use Dr. Evan Tobin. I called that day to schedule an appointment.
in Pataskala, OH |
We love Dr. Tobin! My husband, myself and our 2 year old daughter are all patients. My husband had stellar experience and care before, during and after sinus surgery. When we learned that our daughter needed an ENT referral, we immediately requested Dr. Tobin. She went on to have bilateral ear tube surgery. Both the surgery and her recovery went perfectly. His concern for his patients is genuine and he is wonderful with children. Highly recommend!
in Newark, OH |
Dr. Tobin is both professional and friendly. H clearly explains his diagnosis, recommendations, and information regarding procedures. He performed surgery on 2 of my children and personally called to check in on them after their surgery. He is great!
in Columbus, OH |
I could not be more impressed with the care we have received form Dr. Tobin. He is wonderful with my 4 year old and in 6 weeks has been able to clear up an 18 month battle with chronic ear infection without surgery. Hearing that your child may need surgery is a scary experience for any parent, but Dr. Tobin quickly put us at ease by providing many non-invasive options and then let us become part of the treatment plan by letting us decide what route worked best for our family. He is wonderful!
in Cincinnati, OH |
I would highly recommend Dr. Tobin to others. I have seen him for over a year after visiting various ENT's over the years.. I even travel 100 miles one way for his appointments. Dr Tobin is very patient, he makes time for his patients, and will try the most conservative measures before he does surgery. He performed surgery on me in December of 2015 and my symptoms are better.
in Columbus, OH |
I am mother of 2 young kids. My coworker recommended Dr. Tobin when my oldest started having chronic ear infections. Dr. Tobin is an excellent doctor. He is patient and listens to our concerns and gives recommendations as to what needs to be done. I am very glad that I made the right decision to see Dr. Tobin. Both my kids and my husband are patients of Dr. Tobin. My kids and my husband had procedures done which were performed by Dr. Tobin. I would recommend Dr. Tobin to anyone.
in Newark, OH |
He is a wonderful Doctor! He has seen all three of my children, and I have always been very pleased with the care. His staff is wonderful, and he takes the time to get to know you. He answers all of my questions. Great doctor!
in Blacklick, OH |
great experience treating my daughters chronic ear infections
in Pickerington, OH |
He was very considerate answering all my questions and treated my daughter like his own. He even called the night of the surgery to check on her. He is a great Dr. and had great bedside manners.
in Newark, OH |
Dr Tobin is awesome. We had a great experience both with office visits and surgery.
Dr. Tobin has one of the sweetest souls. You feel it right away! He takes the time to explain everything and to answer all of your questions. You can see that he truly loves his job. He was so kind and gentle with my child during the whole appointment, which as a mother is very comforting.
in Newark, OH |
Dr. Tobin did the tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for my daughter and a couple years later when my son was having ear infection after ear infection he did ear tubes. Dr. Tobin answered all my questions and reassured any doubts or concerns. I will highly recommend him!
in Blacklick, OH |
We have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Tobin and his staff. He is an excellent doctor. He removed both our boys tonsils/adenoids. In addition, he repaired my older son's perforated eardrum. He thoroughly explained the procedures and what to expect after surgery. He patiently listened to and answered all our questions. He connected well with our boys & had great interaction with them. He made sure they understood what was happening at all times. We definitely recommend!
Utica, OH |
Dr Tobin was excellent in explaining the procedure that was being done to my child. He was very informative and made me feel he was in the best hands during surgery. Best ENT Doctor around!
in Chillicothe, OH |
It was very brief, the doctor was nice enough. I had a standard evaluation where he looked in my nose, like a regular doctor would. I then received a bill for $535 him to look inside my nose. I was informed that my insurance classifies this as outpatient surgery! I don't feel like I was helped and I certainly did not have surgery. When I called I was informed that one of the several new patient papers I signed informed me that my insurance might classify him looking up my nose as surgery.
in Newark, Ohio |
Dr. Tobin is an excellent Doctor that made our daughter's tonsillectomy extremely easy. He did a great job letting us know how things went and made our daughter comfortable throughout the entire process.
in Lancaster, OH |
Dr. Tobin treated my son at the age of 2 for ear infections and then again at the age of 8 for chronic tonsillitis/strep throat. Dr. Tobin is just PHENOMENAL! My son is a new kid - surgery was a breeze and recovery was nominal. Dr. Tobin immediately details what you are seeing as a parent, walks you through your choices and does it all with a smile and sincere care for you and your child! I am now seeing Dr. Tobin as an adult.
in Baltimore, OH |
I had sinus infection after sinus infection for years so I finally went to see Dr. Tobin. Loved him right away, his staff, his bedside manor, his personality, everything you want in a doctor. He performed sinus surgery on me and I had a speedy recovery and 4 years later now I am still sinus infection free! He removed my daughters tonsils and adenoids the same year due to chronic strep throat and to this day has never had another positive strep test. I highly recommend him to all!
in Columbus, OH |
Very pleased
Reynoldsburg, OH |
Dr. Tobin's explanations of my condition were completely understandable and I easily made a decision to undergo surgery from these. The surgery was so successful and I am pain-free now. My return visits have been very positive and if I ever need any type of ENT decisions made I would absolutely ask for Dr. Tobin. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a very talented doctor and surgeon.
