    Dr. Dobberfuhl took the time to discuss my history and he completed a very thorough physical exam. However, he changed my medication dosage without informing me. On 2 visits, he ordered baseline radiologic procedures. No follow up was done by Dr. Dobberfuhl re: interpretation of results or recommendations. I called his office on 4 different occasions and asked the front desk person to have the doctor call me. My calls were never returned. Poor communication.

    Front desk people are rude! Interrupt and don't listen to the patient. Have not met Dr. Dobberfuhl which is too bad, I'm sure he's great. Have met Susy Cobb (spelling?) and she's wonderful; GREAT listener. Front staff, NO! Just no compassion. By the way, the first time I was there, they had a yorkie puppy that continuously yapped. I'm a dog lover and I understand having a dog at the office. They can be soothing, but not one that's noisy! This is just my opinion.

    I have just completed my annual physical by Dr. Dobberfuhl. It was professional in the very best sense of the word. He is considerate, willing to listen to the patient’s point of view and extremely through in his history taking and physical exam. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a primary care physician for any member of my family. On the day that he saw me he was a little behind schedule, but this I feel, was due to his taking as much time as necessary to see each patient individually.

    He is kind and very thorough. I have also enjoyed seeing Susie, one of his PAs. Dobberfuhl found and has begun treatment on a problem I have suffered with most of my life. I really didn't think I had a choice but with his encouragement I am trying a medication that is making my life better. I can't tell you how grateful I am. I also have seen Jill Stevenson, his weight loss guru and lost 35 pounds! There are many "Ideal Protein" coaches but none better/more caring than Jill!!

    Dr. Dobberfuhl has been (for around 10 years) and continues to be a wonderful doctor for my aging parent. He doesn't over or under-react, is thorough and attentive. He has the best demeanor of any of the doctor's she has had while in my care for over 20 years and always gives great specialist referrals. I appreciate his demeanor with me as the caregiver to my aging parent.

    The United States ranks 37th out of the 50 most developed nations in patient care. My profession places me in contact with physicians on a global basis. I, unequivocally, state that Dr. Dobberfuhl provides the highest degree of patient care I have seen in the U.S. since I was 14 and left my home to attend UT. I would recommend this physician and his staff to anyone seeking a physician who understands and delivers patient care.

    My 3rd annual physical since moving to Dr. Dobberfuhl and Adult Care of Austin. My first visit as a Medicare covered patient, and I really got a good baseline exam with lots of time and explanation form Dr. D. His manner is great and he looks to save patient-$ and never over-prescribes. Nice office staff too, and they do great with the high patient load of seniors (like me!) they have to deal with!:-)

    Dr. Dobberful is one of the best doctors my family has ever had. He is kind, compassionate, listens and spends time just discussing our options, going over blood work/tests and answering our questions. We are very pleased to have him as our family doctor.

    Dr Dobberfuhl treatment today for my annual check up was very caring and he took extra time with me because of personal family problems I am having and was very caring about ways to help me reduce stress and recommend people and agencies to me that may be able to assist me and thus help in my caring for myself to be a good caregiver for my other family member that needs care.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Dobberfuhl since he start his practice of medicine. He is very thorough in his examinations and treatment. He never seems to be in a rush and unconcerned, but very thoughtful and caring. He is an excellent doctor and sincerely takes great care of his patients. I feel lucky to be a patient of his. Ken Owen

    Dr. Dobberfuhl took almost an hour to go over a recent blood test and patiently listed to a long list of items I needed to talk abut. He gave me several referrals for further tests and was very respectful and patient during the entire time. I felt like he was really interested in my questions and valued me as a human being, not just another statistic to log into his computer. He also provided me with a complete list of written answers to my questions based on notes he took as we talked.

    Dr. Dobberfuhl is personal, knowledgeable and really listens. He takes his time with you and remembers what your story is. I have been seeing him for a few years and I am always really satisfied by the experience. He is a really great guy, besides being a good doc! Everyone I have dealt with in his practice is very professional and kind.

    I have been Dr. Dobberfuhl's patient for close to 15 years now. I have nothing but good things to say about him, his colleagues, and his office staff. Thorough, personal, caring attention. Highly recommended!

    I would definitely recommend Dr. Dobberfuhl as a physician. First of all, his lab technician is incredible. I am what they call a difficult stick, and her skill made the process both painless and expeditious. As far as Dr. Dobberfuhl, I have never encountered a physician who took as much time with me, going over all my lab results in detail, discussing medications and, most of all, listening to my concerns regarding my well-being and responding in a thoughtful and caring manner.
    Austin, TX |
    Dr. Dobberfuhl takes time to explain medical conditions in terms I can understand. I seldom have to wait during my appointment and if I do, he explains why. I feel I can ask him any question and get a person reply. He is responsive to and and supportive of my treatment preferences and never pushes a particular method. He accepts Medicare and supplements and is willing to work with me to understand what is and is not covered by insurance. I appreciate his overall patient friendly approach.
