Excellent care and service
Office waiting area was clean. Staff was kind and most importantly, Dr. O'Bert gave me the appropriate time and care. I have recommended him to my family and friends who are also satisfied. I am very blessed to have found a caring doctor.

Dr. O’Bert is not a good doctor. I suffered severe sudden hearing loss in my left ear several days ago. I saw my internist the next day who did some tests on me and discovered that yes, my left ear was filled with blood, and was very inflamed. He performed a test that showed I had hearing loss. He told me I need to see an ENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, so I called Dr. O’Berts office, and the receptionist said that Dr. O’Bert would not see me until I had a hearing test done. OK. They scheduled my hearing test for a couple of days later. When I took it, the audiologist said that my left ear was below normal in hearing at all decibels tested, which was totally obvious from the test results that she showed me. She immediately sent the results to Dr. O’Berts office, and then I called his office to find out when I could see him. The receptionist told me over the phone that Dr. O’Bert said I do NOT have any hearing loss and can’t see me for another few weeks. What a negligent, incompetent man.

I was able to get an appointment and see Dr. O'Bert right away after realizing I had a sinus issue. Appointment went well and my surgery was scheduled immediately. The day of surgery, Dr. O'Bert walked with the team as they rolled me to the OR and then again back to my recovery room easing my anxiety - it meant a lot that he took the extra time to make sure I was okay. At my follow-up appointments Dr. O'Bert answered all my questions and concerns. He is a patient focused physician! Highly Recommend!

He explained the procedure well and I was very pleased with the results. I have been dealing with sinus infections for over 50 years. I can now eat a meal without blowing my nose. My use of tissues has decreased by 90%.

Dr O'Bert is very professional and spends the time with you to help you understand what is going on. He is a very clear communicator. He performed surgery on my nose to fix it (it had been broken for 12 years and healed broken) and did a good job of clearing things up so I can breathe again.

Dr. O'Bert performed surgery on a deviated septum, ears, and sinuses. The whole experience was smooth and I was told what to expect. Recovery was just as I was told and I did not have any issues. Dr. O'Bert was communicative and nice and his nurse Rhonda was also very knowledgeable and kind. The office staff was also nice, which counts for a lot in my book. I also did not have to wait past my appointment time, which I very much appreciate. I would not hesitate to reach out to his office again. It's hard to find any doctor in which a surgery runs this smooth.

I ended up getting septoplasty. Dr.Obert and his team did a damn good job with my procedure. Wait times were very good, I got in as a new patient very quick. Surgery was well scheduled and was able to give my work a big heads up before the surgery. The staff is great all the nurses do their job great. Clean office wasn't dirty. Dr. Obert is very informative. Easy to talk to. And a very cool doctor.

I would highly recommend Dr. O'Bert to anyone needing an ENT physician. I found scheduling appointments to be simple and he was always punctual. Dr. O’Bert explained everything my condition thoroughly & in terms that were easily understandable. He provided all options available to treat my chronic sinus problems and, once surgery was selected, he reviewed the details again with me and my girlfriend to set everyone’s expectations about the surgery and recovery process. Not only was Dr. O’Bert incredibly accommodating and helpful but his office staff was top notch. When my insurance was slow to approve the procedures, Shelly and the other staff worked directly with them to resolve the issues to the extent possible. Ultimately, even after the team’s involvement, my insurance required Dr. O’Bert to speak with one of their representatives to resolve their concerns (something that he did at 6:30 pm the night prior to the surgery). Honestly, I could not recommend Dr. O’Bert and his sta

I have had two surgeries with Dr. O'Bert for my thyroid. He and his staff have all been wonderful and have worked hard to get to the bottom of my issues and resolve them quickly. I appreciate his caring nature and the time he took with me during appointments as well as on follow-up phone calls. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing ENT surgery and treatment.

Dr. Rob O'bert MD was absolutely fantastic. He was very thorough, kind and understanding. He explained my options and got a treatment plan organized which effectively treated my chronic sinus problems I've had for many years. I would very highly recommend him to anyone needing an excellent ENT. Appointments ran on-time and the staff was superb and very caring. I also work in the medical field so my expectations are even higher. Dr. O'bert was excellent in every aspect of my care plan. He came very highly recommended from a physician I work with. I never thought I could be well again and it is very comforting to feel so much better again after years of misery and two prior sinus surgeries with a different ENT. Thank you so much Dr. O'bert. If I could rate you higher, I would. Do not hesitate to entrust him and his staff to care for you.
