"I was pleased with Dr Cobb and his entire staff. The amount of care and concern shown, the accessibility of the doctor and staff...and I especially appreciated the honesty and directness in dealing with our family's difficult. Surprising and frightening situation. That directness by all was actually comforting to me."

"Dr. Cobb was very professional and easy to speak to. We discussed my going to see Dr. Levin regarding a Botox treatment for my migraines. I informed him that I had a problem getting an appointment before September. Dr. Cobb said he would contact Dr. Levin about an appointment for me. I received a call from Dr. Levin’s office the next day and was given an appointment for June 19th."

"The procedure that Dr Cobb preform on me was life changing. My pain level was excruciating and debilitating. I was not able to sleep and barely able to walk with a cane. There are not enough words to express what it meant to have someone listen and then execute a plan in a very timely manner. My only wish is that I could have met Dr Cobb sooner. Would highly recommend him and his staff."

"Dr. Cobb is the most compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and decisive surgeon you could ever hope to have. He performed emergency surgery on a Saturday as he knew my situation was critical. I have the utmost respect for him and forever grateful to him. He saved my life! I can’t thank him enough. He is the best of the best."

"Dr. Cobb and his staff are brilliant and warm professionals. A decade ago, my father-in-law was able to walk on his own again because of Dr. Cobb. I've had two different back problems in the past five years and Dr. Cobb completely corrected them for me. His bedside manner is stellar. He explained everything that would happen to me and answered questions I wouldn't think to ask. Everyone in his office is equally stellar, which includes his very caring Physican's Assistant, Laurie and nurse, Lyndsey. I have no real money or special connections, but I was treated like a VIP."
