Dr Cobb is one of the rudest doctors I've seen. He didn't even take the time to listen to me. I would not recommend him at all!!! Stay away!!! He is inconsiderate and not understanding. He dismisses you and treats you like your 5yrs old.

I will NOT go back to this so called Doctor! He is Rude and very unprofessional! I waited almost 3 hours in his office for him to come in my room for maybe 5 mins. I left his office in pain, no treatment what so ever and still no answers to what's going on! Please stay away from this wack Doctor because he will be a waste of your time! I will be taking further action and reporting him .

I've been getting a cortisone shot in my foot for several years and Dr Cobb has done it each time. People freak out when I tell them what I have done, but Dr Cobb takes time to make the shot quite painless and effective. I have no reservations about going and getting treatment from him, and would use him for any orthopedic procedure I needed.

Dr Cobb is an excellent surgeon and very caring. He can be blunt spoken, but he does listen and answer questions well. I don't have a problem with someone who says what he thinks, but this can be an issue for some people. He took very prompt and appropriate action when he saw a problem with my surgery and recovery. He and his staff made it very easy for me to let them know if I was having any problem.

Very rude when I had to see him after knee surgery with one of his partners. He refused to help me, and referred me to the partner I had for surgery. The only reason I came in was for severe pain and the partner was not in the clinic. Dr. Cobb insisted I come in... then refused to do anything, and acted like I was stupid for coming in. Terrible attitude.

My husband broke his foot so we went to see Dr. Cobb in Jackson. First he said we needed to see a plastic surgeon, my husband then told him that the ER X-ray tech said there were fractures in his heel. He then came back in and said yes you have multiple fractures. They took off the splint that was supporting his foot wrapped it in an ace wrap and said that's all he could do. I could of done that at home. bed side manner is lacking as well
