There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

He always explains things and makes sure you know about your condition and always makes sure you understand why you are on the medicine and how to take it. In 5 years of seeing him I can not say one bad thing!

my opion of my doctor is VERY high, I wish I had seen him before my operation.I think he would have done a much better job. I have reccommended him to severalpeople.

Dr. Dobbins has always been great and made sure to spend enough time with me answering all my questions. Although he is very busy, he never acts put out or like he doesn't have time for me. He is the reason I was willing to spend 4 of my PTO hours sitting in opthalmology's waiting room.

provider did not introduce himself to me. I assumed it was Dr Dobbins because his name was outside the door
Sep 15, 2016
Doctors don't spend time with me. - Always in a hurry to check me over. Very disappointed in care by doctors.
Aug 5, 2016
The provider, Dr Dobbins, listened well. He even did a great job in asking questions when he didn't understand what I was saying. He responded to me in a way that was helpful rather than arrogant or superior.

Pleasant, with regard to my husbands physical condition very attentive.
May 4, 2016
There is only one thing that disappointed me on the visit. Dr. Dobbins informed me that he no longer does refract (sp?) to learn if my present eyeglass prescription is still good for me. That was usually part of my visit.

very impressed with attentiveness, informativeness, attention to detail, clarity, integration of information into recommendation, competence and professionalism... I took the referral to Dr Dobbins based on his reputation. I left more confident in the physician when I left, having confirmed what I had been told.

I've often recommended Dr. Dobbins to friends, and have been very pleased with the procedures that I have had due to the very difficult injury that I incurred.
