Dr. Dobner has done surgeries on my knees on several occasions. His skills are top notch, and his bedside manner is laid back and relaxed. I always know what to expect from the procedure and post-op recovery. In six weeks, I will be scheduled for a total knee replacement. Dobner is the best around for that surgery.

I fractured my left tibia/fibula, requiring surgery, Dr Dobner advised me of the procedure to repair my injury and was very reassuring about the recovery and treatment.

i had been told I needed cervical disc surgery by spine specialist and that surgery really scared me so I went for second opinion to Dr. Dobner. He prescribed physical therapy and i went 3 times per week for one month and my neck was painfree and no surgery!! it has been a year now and still pain free. Excellent doctor.

I tore my ACL. Was told that I needed to lead a more sedentary lifestyle. And that a women didn't need an ACL to cook and clean. I am about to test for my black belt in Karate, He told me that 35 year old women are to old for that nonsense. I got a second opinion.
