Saw Dr. Tobin years ago when living in Cary, NC and had to have bunion surgery on both my feet of course at different times. I was so impressed with this staff and with him. Always super nice, explained everything to you and treated you with the upmost respect. I know if I ever have problems again that I will be going back to him.

Dr. Tobin performed bunion surgery on both of my feet. It was so much easier than I was told by other doctors it was going to be. He is very nice and I am extremely happy they way my feet turned out!
