Dr. Tobin is our go to guy for any and all ortho problems. He is always accessible and he knows what he is doing. So glad we found him when we moved to Hilton Head!

Dr Tobin is not careful to explain anything to his patient and has a bit of an arrogant attitude. I would not use him as my doctor again
Savannah, GA |
Several years ago I had total knee replacement on my left knee that turned out badly. I had pain and swelling that never resolved. I saw Dr. Tobin hoping that he would be able to help me. He took x-rays; explained what needed to be done; and answered all my questions. I am so thankful for Dr. Tobin's willingness to help someone who had previously had knee replacement surgery elsewhere. I am totally pain free; no swelling I will be forever grateful to Dr. Tobin for giving me my life back.

Dr Tobin gave me my leg back. Although it was an emergency and I didn't have an orthopedist, Dr Tobin came in after work and did what needed to be done with good results despite the fact that a drug I had been taken inhibited healing of the fx. When I articulated that I had questions, he answered them Although I am still being treated due to the lack of bone developement in the right place, his concern and expertise resolves some of my fears. Wish I could talk to him more often
Bluffton, SC |
Dr Tobin didn't even review my chart and only spent 5 mins with me then prescribed medicine that would have sent me strait to the hospital. He was very short, impersonal and couldn't care less about the pain I was in. He told me there was nothing he could do for me and assumed all I wanted was narcotics, which I never asked for nor can I take due to stomach issues I have. I left there in tears. Should have listened to my Aunt who knows him personally and went to another Doctor.

During a visit to Hilton Head Island in October 2015 I had a bicycle accident resulting in a broken left hip and left elbow. Fortunately, Dr. Tobin saw me in the emergency room and was available to operate the next day. His surgical skills and post-op advice have done wonders for my healing. In addition to his technical skills, Dr. Tobin has a caring personality and clearly answers any and all questions related to treatment and prognosis. I am happy to recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Tobin did an excellent job of recognizing a serious problem and making a decision for my husband to have a ?total hip.? My husband had been in severe pain and had been taking heavy doses of narcotics. He was not getting any relief from the pain. My husband was barely able to walk.. After surgery my husband only requires an occasional Tylenol. He is walking without pain. Dr.Tobin explained everything so that it was easy to understand.
