in Cocoa, FL |
Would absolutely, highly recommend Dr Dobson to anyone. Excellent doctor and surgeon who performed my operation and saw me through my battle with cancer (now 3 years free). Honest and forthright about everything, but actually cares and gives you the hope you need with a cancer diagnosis. He would definitely be my surgeon of choice for any future needs.

Dr. Dobson has been nothing but kind and professional. He saved my life and kept me from dying twice. He displays excellent bedside manners and is always available for his patients. He is personable and caring and is the superior surgeon in the area. His level of care and professionalism is second to none. As far as the individual below regarding your combat boot comment: there is no justification or basis for your comments. Are you really a patient or a disgruntled competitor?
