Ratings for Dr. Cully A. Cobb
Dr Cobb is a great surgeon however his office staff is a joke. I had a large brain tumor that he successfully removed a few years ago. His nurse (Sandra) would not return my calls, she added so much stress to an already tough situation, I would not recommend him because of her.
Dr. Cobb was my Doc for removal of a brain tumor. He started on me at 7:30AM, went 4 hours and had two more after me. I saw him again at my bedside at 12:45AM just checking on me. In my opinion, anyone who keeps that kind of hours doing his job deserves some slack when it comes to being nice and cuddly. I've said it to his face, he's old, and aloof and sometimes short with his patients. And I'd choose him again every time. Other than that, he needs to take a day off and buy some new shoes.
My husband had spinal surgery from Dr. Cobb for a moderately herniated disk in the C7-T1 area. For unexplained reasons, Dr. Cobb entered the spine above this area by quite a bit. While he was in the wrong spot, Dr. Cobb tore the outer layer of the spinal cord near the C5-6 area. This caused my husband to be paralyzed on one side. The attorney that represented Dr. Cobb said that this accident was "within the standard of care". I would not recommend a doctor who believes that operating in the wrong place and paralyzing a man is "within" his standard of care.
I was a happy patient of Dr.Cobb's until he changed his phone system. You can no longer get ahold of a human. The phone system instructs you to leave your name and phone number and the office would get ahold of you. I left three messages with no phone call back. I complained to my family doctor who referred my to Dr. Cobb, and his office left two messages with no return call. Dr. Cobb may be a good doctor, but his phone system stinks. How can you run an office where you can't even make an appointment. It would be really nice if a real human answered the phone
I am the husband of a patient Dr. Cobb was called into while she was in the hospital. I found him to be pompous.He did not believe my wife was in pain, called her a "drug addict" and was "doing this to get more drugs". It was so insulting. It took another Dr. (Dr.Armstrong) to prove to him that she did have a disc herniation. Of course, we did not let him touch my wife and went to another top neuro surgeon , withh successful outcome.
Very complicated tumor removal from tailbone/lower spine area. Dr. Cobb made sure I knew what we were dealing with, who and the qualifications of other participating surgeon. Very successful surgery, quick recovery and good follow up. Don't look any further for a neurosurgeon.
This Doctor came into his waiting room and greeted every patient in person. He had great bedside manors. He took his time & explained everything to me. I had him operate on 4 levels of my spine. I am up and walking pain free after a few days. I rate him a 10 plus. I chose Doctor Cobb after a lot of checking and talking to other people who he operated on.
