total knee replacement

I was very pleased with Dr. Dobson and his staff, The surgery went very well. I was up the same day and walking, I was amazed how little pain I had, I had some swelling which is normal,but I was walking the halls at SOMC. I would very highly recommend Dr.Dobson and Bunny they were great. I may need my left knee done in the future and Dr. Dobson will be my Doctor.You do not have to go out of Portsmouth to have your Knee done when you have such a fine Doctor here.

He has done all my surgeries and I hate it that he has left Springfield but it is to far for me to drive or I still would be going to him. If anyone needs surgery done he is the one to go to. He is most caring Dr. that I have be to in a long time.

rude staff

The red head front desk girl is rude, cuts people off, and is fake. I overheard her and the assistant, Jill talking bad about patients. It seems they don't care about patients much. Dr. Dobson is a wonderful man being represented by the wrong people. I will say Patti is a delight and there was another girl there that was very kind, she had dark hair and seemed to care about patients genuinely.
