Will and have recommended Dr. Sobey to Family and Friends. Good Caring Doctor..
Patient | September 2, 2018

Dr. Sobey and all of his medical staff were very understanding of my issue, answered all questions. As this was for the pain clinic, I had concerns that my issues and level of pain would be glossed over. Completely the opposite. I felt like someone truly understood the amount of pain I've been in for a long, long time and offered much needed relief. Scheduled procedures for nerve blocks and made sure that I had the needed medication to keep me comfortable until the procedures could be completed.

when I went to Dr Sobey, I had no hope I. this working. I put my trust in Jesus Christ and prayedfor Dr Sobey and his staff. I praise the Lord everyday for the outcome.

The procedure that I had worked!!!! I have many friends with same back issues. Like me nothing worked. Many of my friends have asked many questions about this procedure and I have given them phone numbers, doctors names, etc. This has reduced 50-60 % of my pain !!!
