Great office visit Dr CobbCC has always been direct and supporative in our meetings. I have always felt that he cared about my well being. However he has always emphasized that my overall health was in my hands. He has said that to me for twenty years. I have finally listened to him and taken it to heart. He is a great doctor and good friend. Thanks Dr. C
