Dr. Sobey couldn't have been more caring, helpful and encouraging with full explanation of treatment - medication - which he thought would be best for my condition and restrictions.

Too early to tell. This was my first visit.
Patient | February 15, 2017

Dr. Sober is a great caring dr., I had a question about something I saw on TV. He not only called me back, he called me 3 times until he could reach me to answer my question.
Patient | January 6, 2017

The treatments I had for this visit is Radio Frequency Ablation on my spine. They have a tight team and they know what is going to happen when and are very vigilant as this treatment must be done with care to avoid serious complications. Dr. Sobey is very particular about making sure things are being done correctly. Love this team of providers.
