Dr. Tobet attended undergraduate school at Stony Brook University in New York, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1980. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree in 1984 from the New York Chiropractic College. Upon graduation from chiropractic school, Dr. Tobet traveled oversees to work as a chiropractor in Israel, where he gained valuable experience as a chiropractor working with many people, including dignitaries and ballet dancers. Since his return from Israel, for the past 30 years, Dr. Tobet has been in private practice in Fairfield, Connecticut.
Dr. Tobet continued to further his education and he became board certified as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (C.C.S.P.) in 1988. He has volunteered his services as a sports physician at such events as the Nutmeg Games, the Special Olympics, and the Fairfield Half Marathon. Dr. Tobet has also served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Bridgeport Chiropractic College.
Dr. Tobet believes in a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare, which means that he believes that all healthcare providers should work together to find the best possible outcome for the patient. For example, if a referral to another specialty is necessary, Dr. Tobet will not hesitate to do so.
Sometimes surgery and medication is necessary, but the most fulfilling part of being a chiropractor, for Dr. Tobet, over the past 30 years is saving people from unnecessary surgery and medication. Disc herniations (either in the neck or lower back), for example, are often a reason for surgery but Dr. Tobet has found only a few cases over the years that could not be helped through chiropractic care (see our testimonials). Dr. Tobet has also helped patients who were told they needed surgery for stenosis (also in either the neck or back).
The treatment that Dr. Tobet uses will vary from patient to patient, based upon a thorough understanding of the patient’s diagnosis. In addition to traditional and advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Tobet utilizes physiotherapy such as ultrasound when necessary. Dr. Tobet has a special interest in treating sports injuries and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems. Orthodics for foot problems are sometimes recommended.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
