Such kindness and empathy . He gave me my life back . I felt more secure and supported. I saw him for 10 years . The value cannot be put in dollars. He helped me have some trust in men again but on a different level. He showed me a different way of thinking. I am grateful. He helped my son as well. Thank you Dr. Jobson.

Dr. Jobson may be the most impressive person I've ever had the pleasure to know. He is extremely intelligent and caring. He is always a step ahead in his knowledge of psychiatric pharmaceuticals and off-label uses for other medicines. I am fully convinced I would not be alive now were it not for him. I sought help many places, but he was THE one who could and did help. If you are in psychiatric pain, follow this man's suggestions!!! (Very accessible, short wait times. Great staff.)

Dr Jobson saved my husbands life. He was battling demons and addiction and our last hope was Dr Jobson. My husband told me if this didn't work he was going back into his addiction, because he was frustrated and hurt inside. When we came to Dr Jobson and filled out his paperwork Dr Jobson knew exactly what was wrong and helped my husband by diagnosing him and giving him the meds he needed. He is now over a year sober! And much more happy! Thank you Dr Jobson so much!

Dr Jobson is an amazing, caring, thorough doctor. He keeps up with the latest treatments for bipolar disorder and is wonderful with getting family members involved in a patient's treatment plan. He's very stern, yet caring with his patients and will work around new treatments and medications until a good mix is found. He's easily accessible at all hours for emergencies. I can't say enough wonderful things about him.

Dr Jobson does not care about his patients and he actually hung up on me after I repeatedly ask him to help me. His office staff is very rude! He will only spend less than 5 minutes in the room and then rush you out. He doesn't even remember your name even if he just saw you the day before. Do not go to this doctor!
