What People Say About Dr. Richard Hoblitzell, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I would give no stars if I could. He did not explain anything including how long I should be off or if I can return light duty, what I’m allowed or not allowed to do, how to use the crutches as he said I could stop using them to pain (I was using non weight bearing but had no info on how to do partial weight), etc. He really did not say much to me about limitations- he said those in his note writer as he started writing the note by talking into his microphone before he was even done with my visit.There was also lacking communication between him and his staff as he told me to do a dressing change one way. Also staff started to do the dressing change without gloves!!! I hope hands were washed prior! Md was not personable at all. There was not any printouts given on care to let me know what I should be doing.

Dr. Hoblitzell is very professional and met all my concerns with action that worked. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing his services. I'd also like to add that OrthoCincy runs like a well oiled machine. They are very fast and courteous. They had me back before my scheduled time and with very little waits between xrays and seeing the MA and the Dr.

Visits are short don't really care about my care. I had rods and pins put in my ankle back in August and now facing them getting removed. I am in so much pain I want to cry walking across my living room and because I am in my early 20s he told me to take over the counter pain medication (which I am fine with if it worked). My foot is always cold and part of it stays numb.

I went to see Dr Hoblitzell as an outside doctor while waiting for an appointment with the VA after sustaining a knee injury. He kept our visits very brief & didn't seem to care too much about accurately diagnosing my knee injury. He would only do x-rays(instead of an MRI) on my knee as well as a few physical knee examination tests to guess that I had a knee sprain. After seeing my VA doctor, it was determined that I actually had a torn ACL. Now I am unable to repair my ACL due to his negligence

Before I saw Dr Hoblitzell I was having trouble walking. Once he replaced my knee, I was able to dance at my grandaughter's wedding.

I like Dr Hoblitzell's conservative approach. He gives your body a chance to heal on it's own before rushing you in to surgery.
