Dr. Thom E Lobe has the following 1 specialty

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

The Doctor I've Been Searching For

I searched high and low to find a doctor who was knowledgable about bio identical hormones. I went through at least five different doctors before I stumbled upon Dr. Lobe. He was the only one that was actually able to help me with my hot flashes. The other doctors were unable to properly measure my current hormone levels and what hormones I needed. Dr. Lobe was able to properly identify the hormones that I was deficient in and got me back in check. I am so glad I found him.

Miracle Child

My son David was born with multiple birth defects. He required 4 surgeries in the first 3 weeks of his life. If you are meeting Dr. Lobe for the first time you might feel uncomfortable with his bedside manner. Please don't let this prevent you from working with him. He scared me with his words, but don't mistake the way he conveys information with the care that your child will receive. He is in "think mode" during a consultation. I had difficulties getting pregnant and when I did give birth to a child that had so many issues I was crushed.Dr. Lobe saved my son's life. Noone thought he would survive. My son is now 6 years old. Every milestone he reaches I think of Dr.Lobe and how he miraculously rebuilt my son. After the surgeries we had multiple follow up visits. We rarely waited more than 5 minutes and you could see how much he actually cared for my child and our family. You could see his love for his work in his eyes. I am thankful every day for the brilliance of this man.

One Star

Dr. Lobe was too busy to discuss my daughter's hospitalization and need for surgery. He rushed in and out of her hospital room. My daughter's pathology worsened for the next 24 hours until a different surgeon was on call. Fortunately, the other surgeon correctly identified the urgency of her condition and rushed her into surgery. Infection had spread throughout her abdominal region. My personal opinion: Unless you are visiting his Beverly Hills practice, stay away!
