Patient Comments (12)
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.
Dr Hoblitzell is a very conscientious doctor. I am very pleased with the results of my surgery.
I am very grateful for the care this doctor gave me.
This doctor took time to listen and answer all my questions.

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.
in Cincinnati, OH |
Very caring and thorough.
in Elsmere, KY |
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.
