I can’t praise Mr Dobson enough. He is the first Doctor in over 5 years to actually take the time to listen to my concerns and take action appropriately by allowing me to make an informed choice on my treatment plan. I trust him completely. Thank you so much.


Calming and reassuring nature- willing to spend the time to listen to concerns and explain complicated and difficult situations and options. Most definitely recommend.”


All the gratitude in the world is not enough for how I feel about Dr Sam Dobson, I actually felt I was listened to after two and a half years of what felt like banging my head against a wall. He had a lovely calm caring nature and made me feel at ease from my first appointment through to my operation. Thank you so much
