Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Negligent, never has any time, acts like she is late catching a bus and you're lucky if you get five minutes of her time. My senior mother was severely dehydrated twice and this was never addressed. All this doctor cares about is going skiing- and money. She ought to retire.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dobbertin for about 17 years. She has helped me imensly.Has made my life better. She's down to earth and sincere. Always spends a sufficient amount of time at my visits. She listens and hears what i say. I feel very lucky to have her as my primary care doctor all these years. More years to come.

Hurried, rushed, acted as though she had no time. Saw me for all of about 8 minutes and then rushed out the door. No real quality health care. Not recommended.

Dr. Dobbertin went above and beyond in helping my father. I can't say enough in how professional, honest, and caring she was. She was always there for my mother and family in our most difficult time in life. Thank God there are still caring doctors caring for us like Dr. Dobbertin. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dr. Dobbertin is FANTASTIC. She isn't one to preach at you for any real or perceived shortcomings when it comes to your health. She will help you identify something you would like to work on as a goal and will do everything in her power to help you reach it. I find her to be a fantastic resource and although I moved from Northeast VT to Central VT, I have decided to remain in her care. She is well worth the 1.5 hr drive!
