Dr.Dobay was the absolute best obgyn I have ever had. He made sure that me and my baby were monitored throughout my pregnancy. Whenever my husband and I would go into office visits he would always make us feel comfortable. I had to deliver my baby three weeks early by C-section and Dr. Dobay was awesome. He had my son out and safe In no time and me stitched up and comfortable. this was my 4th C-section and he was the best by far. I highly recommend Dr.Dobay to anyone who is expecting. I ?my ob.

Dr Dobay made me wait over 2 hours. When he did see me he acted like he was in such a rush and I could tell he was only half listening. His staff is loud, rude and unprofessional. No one likes him. My friends say they only go to him because he will write a large number of pain meds.

I didnt really like the wait times but Dr dobay is an excellent Dr. I've had surgery with him and fixing to have my second one. He told me what to expect and told me all the good and bad.

Best doctor I've ever had. I had an uneasy pregnancy & he was there for me. He even gave me his cellphone number incase I needed advice because I wasn't doing well. When my son was born via c-section, it was like he had him out of me in 5 minutes. He's not only a doctor, but a friend. I am so appreciative of him and his sense of humor!

Dr. Dobay is awesome! He truley makes you feel comfortable in any situation or reason you make an appointment with him for as well as his staff. I recommended him, to my sister. He is great with us both and handles our different situations in the absolute BEST ways he can. If, you don't like your Doc having a since of humor and one whom puts you down in a nicely; trashy way, then I wouldn't choose Mr. Fun, nice, NON-judgemental Dr. Dobay. ??. I am now pregnant thanks to him! Good luck to you.

Dr. Dobay took me under his wing as a transfer from Dr. Shearer. He delivered my daughter and has seen me ever since. I love his humor, he always answers all of my questions with exact detail as whats to happen with a procedure or what exactly they are looking for and the good side and bad side depending on what the results are. Also, if the results are bad how we fix the issue. As a female I am very comfortable with him as he sees me as a friend and treats me with respect.

I would suggest going to see a different doctor. I like Dr. Dobay, he seems like a nice person but I feel like he maybe has overextended himself. Not only that but the office in Clarksville is horrible. Not only were they asking me questions in the middle of the hallway where everyone could hear, but they were doing it with other people and I could hear everything. This is after I waited over 2 hours for my appointment.

Dr. Dobay is the best Dr I have ever had made my visit very good
Nashville, TN |
I would not recommend Dr. Dobay as a ob/gyn to anyone who wishes to have the ability to choose what they want in birth. Dr. Dobay is very much his way or the high way.
in Ashland City, TN |
Dr. Dobay is personable and overall, just a great doctor. I have had some not so welcoming OBGYN docs. I always feel comfortable and welcomed not only by Dr. Dobay, but the staff as well. I have had 2 surgeries with him, one of which he delivered my baby girl Riley, and they both went great! Plus my husband loves him. Big Bonus! Wait times are a pain, but for a good OBGYN doc, I'll wait as long as it takes.
Poor bedside manner, doesn't answer all questions, visits with patient for 2-5 minutes, talks about your issues outside of the room with others (HIPPA violation), too many patients scheduled at the same appointment time. Last but not least, you get seen 3 hours after your scheduled time.
