He truly listened to me and was excellent in recommendations. He was prompt to follow up on refilling prescriptions and seriously made all my visits the most enjoyable doctor visits I’ve ever had. I can’t recommend him enough.

Although the wait time was too long, my visit with Dr. Dobson went very well--excellent bedside manner, knowledgeable, and he took the time to research and follow up a lot outside of my appointment time to make sure I was gettingthe care I needed and healing well. I definitely recommend him.

I got my annual physical with Dr. Dobson. I saw him first thing in the morning, and he seemed a little out of sorts; he probably just needed his morning coffee though, haha. He did a good job explaining everything thathe was doing and answering any questions that I had. I plan on making Dr. Dobson my primary physician going forward.

He was okay. He didn’t have any knowledge of my issue so he referred me out which was fine. However he started probing about one of my other health issues (which i was not there for) and felt it necessary tosell me his glory days of being a public health clinician.

I wait more than one hour to get a visit of less than 10 minutes. Perhaps it was the right length due to my issue but it seems not fair

Dr. Dobson is patient and seems knowledgeable. But the waiting time is too long, and the end result basically says nothing.
