      Dr. Stobbe is amazing. Through early intervention, he helped my son not only graduate from High School, but go on to college and a career. Now, he is getting married in a few weeks and is living a happy and successful life. A huge thank you to Dr. Stobbe for helping us to guide our son through life to learn how to overcome obstacles. I cannot believe he was the same person who, as a child, was questionable for mainstream school. I can never thank you enough.

      Dr. Stobbe is absolutely amazing. He has been guiding and helping us raise my sister's two boys who have autism since they were four years old. Conner and Ian just turned 17. (Yes, they are the same age, they are triplets, their brother does not have autism.) The boys father barely acknowledges Conner and Ian so I am their second parent--I have found Dr. Stobbe to be very knowledgeable, professional, personable, helpful--I could go on and on! One of the things that most impresses me about Dr. Stobbe is that he refers to his patients who have autism as "our children"--they matter to him as individuals. Dr. Stobbe has the most understanding and compassion of any doctor I have every met.

    • Rich Ronan, MT 04.15.13

      Dr. Stobbe was great with our son Jake who has Autism. We traveled from Montana and met with Dr. Stobbe. The entire visit was great, they knew exactly how to handle Jake and we didn't feel alone. They even had toys that he loved and played with during the visit. This is a god send and I will recommend this clinic for anyone on the spectrum.

      Dr. Stobbe helped me get my life back after a mild traumatic brain injury in 2006. I highly recommend him! He cares and has great expertise with brain injury symptoms. I don't think I would have been able to return to work had it not been for his guidance and knowledge.

    • Tiana Kent, WA 01.05.12

      Dr. Stobbe has been such a blessing to my son Tion. He is 10 years old and we have been seeing Dr. stobbe For over five years. Tion is currently on medication that is helping him tremendously in school and with his behavior. This of course was not Dr. Stobbe first answer we tried everything before actually placing Tion on medication at 7 years old. Before Dr. Stobbe No one could help me, no one even knew enough about the Autism spectrum to help me. I highly recommend Dr. Stobbe for anyone child or adult living with Autism.

    • Carrie kent, WA 02.22.11

      Dr. Stobbe is a great doctor. I really appreciate all the help he has been for our family. He is such a fantastic doctor.

    • Tammy Seattle Washington 02.11.11

      Dr Stobbe is excellent with my daughter who has Asperger's Syndrome and Depressive Disorder. He listens, shares insights, and gives respect. He talks with her, values her opinion and includes her in the treatment. He asks questions that shows he understands the condition, respects the patient as the adult she is and knows not to just let things "slide". For example, a question like "how will you remember to take your medications at the scheduled times?" He shows genuine concern. Its difficult to find a doctor that does not "tire" of her condition. He shows as much concern today, after many appointments, as he did the first day.
