Dr. Doberstien is beyond EXCELLANT !!! I have been a critical care nurse for 32 years and I do not choose just any physician nor do I recommend just any physician. He is extremely thorough and very pleasant to work with. He follows through with every detail. Plus he shows he generally just cares. Everyone I have referred to him has been 100% pleased !

I've already recommended Dr. Doberstein to others. He's very smart, very caring, and very respectful. I really appreciate the fact that he speaks to me like an intelligent adult, and welcomes any questions I may have. I have to imagine that he's very busy, but I never feel like's he's impatient for me to leave. He always makes sure that I understand what we discussed, that HE understands what I've described, and that I know what step(s) to take next. Excellent doc.

One of the hardest things to do when moving to a new area (we came to SC 2 years ago) is to find a great doctor. When we were in Phoenix, AZ we had a fantastic doctor and staff that spoiled us and we feel we have found a fantastic doctor and staff here in SC.
