      Excellent service and the office was friendly and easy to schedule. Day of my apt I had to pick up my sick child last minute and I was late to the office. The office staff was so understanding and helpful. they were also so attentive to my needs and my child. Hobson was very knowledgeable and I was very happy with the service.

      Followed Dr. Hobson from Kankakee to Flossmoor. I'm 51 and have had ear infections with and without tubes all my life. Dr. Hobson was the first doctor in my life to address the problem instead of just being another Dr. with a band aid. He discovered crystalized bacteria on my mastoid bone causing drainage 24/7 for years. I live without dealing with drainage, finally! Thank you :D Your old staff was great and so is your new one!

      I had a very good experience with Dr. Hobson. He has great bedside manner and is very friendly.

      I went to see this Dr. in regards to slight hearing loss he recommended ear tubes to clear fluid on ear drum, at the last minute while I was under anesthesia he changed the procedure to eardrum corrective surgery I ended up with complete hearing loss.The Dr. I saw for a 2nd opinion said that he should have further examined the ear bone and ear nerve to make certain to fix the issue and I would've probably regained my hearing instead I have no option except at the age of 30 wearing a hearing aid.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
