I am not a patient of Dr. Kobren and visited him for a second opinion. Despite this, he showed sincere interest in my concerns, listened patiently and looked carefully at the records I brought. He examined me and had me take an EKG. After looking at the results, Dr. Kobren concurred with my doctor's judgment and action and told me that there is no need to worry. He explained the situation clearly and reassured me. He was very kind and told me to call or visit if I have any questions in the future. The office staff was also very kind, professional, and organized. I walked out of the office with a big smile and it was noticed by several staff members who smiled at me and expressed their good wishes. Thank you very much. I highly recommend Dr. Kobren for his many admirable qualities as a doctor!!!

He has a very limited bedside manner. No one for small talk, but that said, this man is absolutely excellent. Pays great attention to details, great followup via calls and emails and really seems to pay strong attention to test results. Highly recommended.

Dr. Kobren has been my Primary Care physician for 20 years. I was referred to him when I had a chest cold and upon asking to do a full exam as a new patient he discovered a tumor in my breast which we found to be malignant. He saved my life. He has taken care of my entire family ever since. There is no better doctor, diagnostician, caring human being. My family has since moved out of state but we continue to stay in touch because there is NO ONE we trust more.

I been a patient of Dr. Kobren for over 10 years. He's my primary physician. He has always shown a sensitivity and concern that is rare in today's health care mess. He has always given me a thorough examination and time to hear my concerns. His access is remarkable and I never had a problem reaching him in a reasonable time. He invokes a great deal of confidence and a level of security knowing that he's your advocate. He's the only one I would want in a real emergency situation.

Dr. Kobren easied my worry when I had severe post-op swelling and greatly fluctuating high blood pressure by changing my medication slightly and peforming all necessary tests to tell if this was just a temporary problem or evidence of heart disease. His staff is extremely courteous, professional and well-educated. His phelbotomists (draws blood) get my very small veins on the first try with minimal discomfort.

Dr Kobren is the most amazing Doctor I had ever met. I only realized this after I had a complicated problem. My original doctor was wonderful for many years- I was never sick,just went for well checkups. When I got sick,I realized that my previous doctor was out of his league. I switched to Dr Kobren, saw me immediately, made the correct diagnosis same day.! In retrospect, my previous wonderful doctor, should have been more proactive . Glad I'm under Kobrens care- feel safer!
