I was a great experience. Dr. Dobbs was very professional. He explained my deviated septum surgery very clear and told me what to expect. He is a very caring doctor. After my same day surgery he explained to my family members what he had done and what to expect as I recover. Overall a very good experience and would recommend Dr. Dobbs to anyone.

My daughter was able to get in quickly, schedule surgery quickly and he & his staff has been wonderful through the entire process. We also thought Bernie his surgery asst. was fabulous! My daughter has never been through any type of surgery and it was comforting to have the support of Dr Dobbs & his staff. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Dobbs and his staff are wonderful. He done surgery on me 4 years ago and I thought I was facing it again but he we are going to try other options first. Keep up the great work

after seeing the other review I would like to state if it was the same day Dr. Dobbs had to reschedule his office appts to do surgery, that was for my daughter and in fact this doctor safed my daughters life! He was there for our family in time of need. I am sorry that your appointment was canceled. He is the most caring doctor I have ever met and he is forever in our prayers for his compassion and the care he gave our daughter!!!!! He and his surgery nurse are the BEST

Don't make an appointment with him if you really need it! I've been sick with a sinus for two months that is not responding to antibiotics and steroids, and was referred to this dr by my PCP. I have been anxiously awaiting my appt for next week and received a call this morning cancelling my appt so he can do surgery on someone else.I live an hour away, two hrs round trip, and coordinated this appt with one my husband has in the area with another dr.It's not fair to dump a patient who needs you
