STAY AWAY FROM THIS DR! If I could give zero stars I would. He completely botched my husbands spinal fusion. The fusion was sloppy and Dr Cobb knew it. He didn’t disclose that the MRI clearly showed that there was bone ossification as a result of what he did. We had to consult another dr (who was way more knowledgeable)to explain to us the extent of damage Dr Cobb did. Anyone who is considering using him DONT. He is unqualified and lacks integrity.

Dr. Cobb performed my shunt surgery two years ago which got me started on the road to recovery. He and his nurse Lindsay recommended physical therapy using a special treadmill to improve my walking and cognitive therapy to improve my memory. Therapy took a lot of work and a bit of determination, but I am now back to doing everything I used to do. I am very grateful to Dr. Cobb and his caring team for giving me life back.

This was my first time having surgery. I was nervous and apprehensive about the process. The professionalism and genuine concern of Dr. Cobb and the entire staff was very reassuring. They followed up and kept me informed from the day I made my initial appointment through my recovery period. I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery. I am pain free and enjoying my mobility. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Cobb to friends and family.

There are no words that could ever express my gratitude for Dr. Cobb. I was at a breaking point and had given up all hope of ever being pain free. He gave me my life back! I am now 3 weeks post up and the past year of agony is gone. So if your someone out there that has given up hope, Dr. Cobb is the one to see. If he can help you, you will never regret it, I am proof that being pain free is possible. Thank you Dr. Cobb for being a phenomenal physician.

I had a back issue for many years. I always manage to deal with the pain without needing major work done. This was due to my stubbornness and fear of surgery. One day I took a turn for the worst. Seeking medical help my primary Dr. recommended Dr. Cobb. Unlike other Doctors, Dr. Cobb answered most of my questions before I could even ask them. His attention to detail and kindness to his patients makes you feel at home. Thank you everyone you've saved my life and I wish you all the best!
