Fayette, AL |
Absolutely only a compensation doctor. Patients are customers and income. No concern for treating patients.
in Poplarville, MS |
I had been suffering with my lower back for over ten years. Over the ten years I saw eight Nurosurgeons. One would refer me to another. After remembering the Nurosurgeon I saw in the 90s Dr BoBo I called and made an appointment. He took a look at my MRI and told me he could help me. I thank God everyday my steps were led to Dr BoBo. After a five hour surgery I'm now pain free. I highly recommend Dr BoBo. Everyone in his office is friendly and well educated. Now I'm ready to rebuild my life.

This doctor is one of the best doctor I went to. He is very caring about his patients. In fact I am getting ready to call him again. Dr Bobo did back on me and I went home the same and now I have shoulder and neck problems. I know he can take care of that too.
