Jury is still out as to whether or not he knows how to help me. Thus far not very impressed. Just horrid bedside manner, that much is clear. The apathy coming from this guy is pretty hard to miss.

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
