i waited in waiting room for 10 then waited in exam room for an hour. Dr poked head in and said he would be right w me but then I waited another 15 mins before I decided to leave without seeing him. this is the 2nd time this has happened to me. Then if I'm 10 mins late to an appointment I have to reschedule. If I have to respect your time you must respect mine. signed disappointed patient

Dr. Tobin is the absolute best physician I've ever had. He is patient, compassionate, attentive, and thorough.
Oct. 14, 2019
Because Dr Tobin is so over worked it is difficult to discuss anything new without making an additional appointment. I had a very bad pain in my rib cage the night before my appointment and I wanted to tell him about it and it couldn't be done.
Oct. 14, 2019
Dr Tobin is always conscious of my concerns and my health condition.
Oct. 14, 2019

Oct. 5, 2019
Dr Tobin is one of the best providers I have experienced. He is professional knowledgeable, thorough, knows my health history, listens and answers any questions I have and makes appropriate referrals.
Oct. 5, 2019
It was my first visit. I changed medical insurers.
Oct. 2, 2019
He is always very empathic, listens to my concerns and responds accordingly. He is by far the best internist I have ever seen and always takes whatever time is necessary to deal with any issues/concerns I may have. Plus his diagnostic abilities are unbelievable and have served me well over and over again. He is the best!!!

I never get the medications I want to try. I'm now being told my physical pain is directly related to my mental health and that could be partially true but I still think they are separate issues. I live in constant pain even on high doses of my current medications. I'm sick of living this way. My mental health can be worked on but why can't my physical pain be just as important. It is not all related to mental health.
Sept. 17, 2019
Dr. Tobin and his staff were attentive, efficient and knowledgeable.
Sept. 15, 2019

Sept. 4, 2019
I have always appreciated Dr Tobin's style & quality of communication. He listened very carefully to my health problems & worked with me to start finding a solution.
Aug. 27, 2019
Yes, the discussion centered around diabetes medication treatment. Dr. Tobin understands my knowledge of my disease and body and respects it. I have not been that fortunate with endocrinologists. I asked Dr. Tobin if he felt comfortable managing my diabetes and with humility, he stated that wasn't necessarily in his wheelhouse of skills... which I appreciated very much.Dr. Tobin is a wonderful asset, Doctor, and human being and Froedtert/MCW is fortunate to have such a fine individual as him.
Aug. 15, 2019

July 15, 2019
Dr Tobin is a thoughtful and kind provider. He listens closely. He always makes me feel like I am the most important item for his attention. This was a quick check in. If I would have needed more time, he would have made sure he answered all my questions. I'm lucky he is my doctor.
July 13, 2019
DR. TOBIN IS OUTSTANDING AS A PROVIDER. HE LISTENS AND GIVES GOOD ADVICE. HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE (TYPING WHILE I'M TALKING) AND LIMITS HIS TYPING TO PAY ATTENTION TO ME. THE STAFF IS NOT AS ENGAGED. THEY OFTEN SEEM TO BE JUST MARKING TIME, TREATING US LIKE NMBERS IN QUE. I DON'T SENSE ANY REAL EMPATHY FROM THEM.
July 9, 2019
I waited a solid hour in the waiting room with no indication from the staff as why there was such a delay. The previous appointment I waited 45 minutes. Dr. Tobin is an excellent physician but due to this reoccurring delay in being seen has convinced me that I will changing physicians. No one feeling ill as I was should be ignored. The message to me was no one cared. It is unacceptable in a supposedly top notch healthcare facility.
July 6, 2019
The front desk staff was extremely slow. I was checked well after I arrived and my provider was delayed in seeing me and notified of me being there on time.
July 5, 2019
Lots of typing into the system, little time explaining. Provider seems overworked and did not feel attention paid to my concerns during this visit.
June 30, 2019
Dr. Tobin is professional, respectful and caring. He listens to me and makes sure that l understand the plan of care. MAs need more training. MA used the wrong cuff size to measure BP and reading was essential for my visit and poc.

Dr. Tobin's is informed, respectful and a great listener. I've never had a physician of his caliber.
May 30, 2019
I have known Ben for many years, he has been my provider for at least the last 15 years. Having the same age as a primary care physician makes it very easy to talk about some of the issues affecting both of us.
May 15, 2019
I feel that Dr. Tobin is the best!
May 1, 2019
Dr Tobin is amazing, and always shows such exceptional concern for my health condition. He's my doctor. His staff is always very kind and friendly with me!
April 30, 2019
I have been seeing this provider for the past sixteen years. During this time we have established an excellent patient - client relationship. I have complete confidence in the treatment he has provided and I am sure that I am receiving the best care available.
April 28, 2019
my doctor is great, it's the staff in the office that should be kinder to people, especially ones that are in pain. I've never been late to an appointment for dr Tobin and I was 5 mins late and the receptionist made me wait an additional 8 mins before checking me in and then told me that I would have to reschedule because i was late, then a nurse came out rudely telling me to work on being on time, when I've never had this issue.
April 25, 2019

April 17, 2019
He listened to me and addressed my concerns to the best of his ability.
April 11, 2019
*Dr. Tobin is a very skilled and compassionate physician clearly dedicated to his patient's care and well-being. However, unless you have a regularly scheduled appointment, it is nearly impossible to schedule an appointment with him if one is sick or has been just discharged from the hospital because he is booked so full by the office staff.
April 11, 2019
Dr. Tobin always shows knowledge, concern and caring for all my health care needs. He is an excellent provider and has always demonstrated outstanding capabilities in providing health care services.
April 9, 2019
(Park of my family) I consider *Dr. Tobin as my God son. I love him.
April 9, 2019
For every appointment, the doctor has been at least 30 minutes later than the appointment. I feel that the Dr took his time and thoroughly asked questions, but timing and scheduling seem to be a downfall.
April 4, 2019
This was my first visit with Dr. Tobin and he was very personable and caring. He answered all of my questions and offered helpful suggestions. He was non-judgemental of me not seeing Dr's for the past 10 years. He was very helpful in getting the ball rolling for me to see the Physicians that I need ie. Gyn, Surgery, GI, U/S and lab.
April 3, 2019
They are the best.
April 2, 2019
I enjoy my visits with Dr. Tobin. He his thoughtful, caring and always gives good advise/ recommendations for my health care. Even if I don't want a screening or procedure, he always comes from a preventive standpoint.On occassion he has made a personal call to inform me about a health concern and advised me as to what is best. I appreciate that as a patient!

Feb. 27, 2019
7 My appointment wait time was at least 50 minutes. I had to approach the main desk and find out what was causing the long wait. The charrt in back of main desk showed the doctor was on time.
Feb. 18, 2019
My doctor and the staff are very inviting and involved. They are precise and not condescending like some providers in the medical field. I have the best doctor with Dr. Tobin. He's not just my doctor, he's also a friend that generally cares about my well being
