Dr. Cobb did a great job with my recent surgery and I highly recommend him. The nursing staff and other staff were very professional and knowlegeable and friendly at Mad River Hospital in Same day Surgery. Thank you to all of you.

I had a serious fistula that needed surgery and had heal before a big trip to Central America. He got me into surgery in less than 48hrs, fixed me up, and it was healed and ready to go in under 4 weeks. Humboldt is lucky to have Dr. Cobb. He's personable, knowledgeable, professional and also passionate about what he does. Stand up guy!

Not Good! I had a colonoscopy & an ultra sound regarding bleeding stomach issues. Dr Cobb stated my colonoscopy was clean. ButXray showed a growth? I & staff were Confused. 2nd Test=Stomach ultra sound..never received back from Dr Cobb or the office as an confirmed normal or other wise? His office stated..they think..it was normal..not sure Dr Cobb was to call me, my questions regarding my tests. Today remain unanswered & Dr Cobb never returned my calls!? This was 4 years ago?
