Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Incredible experience
Dr. Hoben is second to none. She treated me as a person, listened to all of my concerns, and walked me through every step of my recovery. I didn't feel like she was rushed but instead completely present for me and my needs at every visit.

Wait for 1.5 hours in room as she is behind.
Left as she was hours behind. No one bothered to tell me until I left the room they left me in and found someone to ask. Disrespectful. I don't allow people to treat me with no respect. There are plenty of hand doctors who will. Why pay someone to treat you in a way you would not treat them.

The reason I gave a fair result to the explanation question was the explanation of a proposed treatment was unclear to me. It could be I didn't understand or perhaps it was not explained clearly. When I asked further detail questions, I decided not to do a proposed treatment recommendation based on what appeared a low likelihood of a positive outcome. Dr Hoben accepted my hesitance and agreed that I need to be comfortable with treatment. I am not happy with where I am at in my treatment although both Dr Hoben and my PT person suggest I am doing well and these things take a long time with the hand. I am likely going to seek an outside opinion at another health system just to be sure.
