      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.
