Dr. Dobyns is simply the best doctor I have ever had or heard of. He has a combination of expertise, wit, and kindness that is exceptional. When my mother was dying, he spent considerable time on the phone with me telling me what to expect. This was all gratis. When other family members have had issues, he does not hesitate to provide expert input. One of the kindest people I have ever met. And he has addressed any medical issues I have had with expertise and wit. Ten Stars if I could.

Dr. Dobyns is research orientated, compassionate, and painstakingly through. He always follows up on serious issues, and he really seems to care about the practice of medicine and his patients. These are rare gifts! To add to it all, he is witty and always seems to be in a good mood. This is especially helpful because physicals and various tests are not fun. His personality helps alleviate the discomfort and awkwardness of being a patient.
