What People Say About Dr. Bruce Robb, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Nothing but great things to say about Dr.Robb and his staff. From his bedside manner to the OR, Dr. Robb is a genuinely caring provider. I initially consulted Dr.Robb after seeing another colorectal surgeon post 4th degree tear from childbirth. I had a lot of issues with my bottom, and Dr. Robb wasn’t quick to want to cut me open again for a ver invasive procedure, and even referred me to a urogynecologist for a second opinion to see if they concurred that the sacral nerve stimulator would be a good option. It was, and even just after the temporary placement two weeks ago to the permanent placement today, I feel like I’ve gotten the normalcy my life had been lacking the past two years. If your looking for an amazing doctor for your colorectal needs, look no further. He’s truly a wonderful doctor/surgeon.

I love Dr. Robb!! He is very easy to understand and speaks in people language. He found cancer in my colon when all the biopsies said there wasn't any. I would highly advise him as a great doctor!
