For all the hype about how good he was, I was seriously unimpressed. Appointment early in the day to ensure it wasn't late...40 minute wait (60 if you count them asking me to be there early for paperwork I'd already done). Finally showed up and told me he has no ideas, can't advise or help me, and said to live with the crippling pain. No advice whatsoever or treatment plan. May be a great doc, but my experience was terrible.
I went to see Dr. Tobey for back pain. He and his staff took the time to really understand what was going on with me. When tests showed some unexplained things that needed follow up, Dr. Tobey went out of his way to make sure I got the news about results as soon as possible and set my mind at ease. The office is friendly & professional. Highly recommend.
The practice at Spine West was amazing. As soon as I walked in the door I felt welcome and treated with respect. The staff were smiling and helpful. Dr. Tobey was very professional and thorough. I appreciated the time he spent with me and reviewed everything with me in detail. I wish all medical care was provided like this place. I have told all my friends who want exceptional care about them. I can't say enough about them...amazing.
