I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Dr. O’Bert, his staff and the OR team at Missouri Baptist Medical Center provided exceptional care with a great outcome. I never waited for my appointments or my surgery, for that matter. These professionals are doing it right. I highly recommend this team for your ENT needs.

If you are worn out from no sleep, continuously fighting sinus infections and becoming increasingly depressed; make an appointment to see Dr. O’Bert and meet him along with his professional staff! Five weeks ago Dr. O’Bert did my sinus surgery including a septoplasty and turbinate reduction. My breathing is so improved and I am excited to start living a healthy life!

Dr. O’Bert was very clear about what the problem was with my sinuses and described the procedure very clearly. The day of surgery he reviewed the procedure with me and my wife to set everyone’s expectations about the recovery process. I am extremely pleased with the results!

I'd been to three other doctors who couldn't seem to get to the root of my breathing issues which continued to get worse and worse. Dr. O'Bert quickly identified my restricted airway and was able to preform a balloon dilation to resolve the issue quickly and relatively painlessly. I cannot express how thankful I am for having my issues finally resolved.

Saw Dr. O Bert for increasingly frequent and severe sinus infections. After patiently and fully answering my questions, he did Septoplasty. Almost 6 mos. post-op, I haven't any sinus infections. I would recommend him to family and friends without reservation. Also, he has a wonderful office staff. jj

I found Dr O'Bert on Healthgrades when I was looking for a good ENT. I am the type that does a lot of research. He had an excellent rating, and as I found out, for good reason. I had sinus surgery to straighten a deviated septum and expand my nasal passage by turbinate reduction and polyp removal. The surgery went extremely well. Aside from the surgery, the pre and post op visits were fabulous. Dr O'Bert and his staff were all courteous, swift, and professional. I could not be happier.My Age=57

My overall rating for Dr. O'Bert is the highest, Excellent. In October, Dr. O'Bert performed endoscopic surgery on my right maxillary sinus cavity, correcting a problem that had bothered me most of 2018. His skills and expertise are second to none in this field. I experienced no pain or discomfort. My post-surgical visits were also thorough with minimal pain and discomfort. He's talented and self-confident, but is kind, patient and comforting. I highly recommend Dr. O'Bert.

Dr. O’Bert immediately put me at ease. He clearly explained what was entailed in my sinus surgery, and patiently answered all my questions. The day of surgery he went over the procedure again to make sure I understood what to expect. The surgery was successful. During my post-op visits I never felt rushed, my questions dismissed or ignored. His office staff has excellent customer service skills as well. I have recommended Dr. O’Bert to family and friends.

Dr. O'Bert listened, looked and made the suggestion that surgery might provide relief to my sinuses. While it took me a few months to agree to the procedure, I am very pleased with the results, as well as with the care, communication and compassion of Dr. O'Bert's team.

I was referred to Dr. O'Bert through the office of my PCP. I immediately found him extremely knowledgeable and exhibiting excellent doctor-patient interactions. I subsequently learned of his exceptional surgical skills and superb post-op care. I can, without reservations, fully endorse Dr. O'Bert as an outstanding otolaryngologist and worth of anyone's serious consideration.

Dr. O'Bert performed a septoplasty and turbinate reduction and the results have been incredible. The procedure went very smoothly and recovery was quick. Overall breathing and athletic performace, after 6 weeks, has greatly improved; however I didn't realize how impactful this procedure would be to my sleep. I can now sleep on my back, and have been getting very restful sleep without waking and turning all night. Incredibly professional and caring staff, would highly reccommend.

I had been to see a few different ENTs and none of them had made me feel as comfortable as Dr. O'Bert. He listened to my concerns, and answered many of my questions. I would highly recommend anyone having issues to visit Dr. O'Bert! Hes kind, compassionate, spends the time with you answering any questions or concerns you may have. He never rushes you or makes you feel put out. So glad to have found him! His staff is so friendly as well. Will go out of their way to help in any way they can.

The team he has assembled is first rate and explained everything to me taking the time to answer all my questions. The process and procedure Dr. O'Bert described and the follow up care required were spot on. I had no surprises anywhere along the line. I am breathing out my left nostril like never before and my sleep is much more restful now. Missouri Baptist Hospital staff was great during outpatient check in and check out. He even personally called my brother after surgery.

Had a deviated septum since childhood. Surgery was perfect and much to my surprise my sense of smell returned big time! Way to go Doc. You're the best.

I’ve had nose problems for over fifteen years. I have been to many doctors. Not until did I meet Dr. O’Bert the real cause of my nose problems came to light. Dr. O’Bert did my nose surgery, and the surgery went very well. The recovery was quick; it only took several days for me to feel the big difference. Now it’s almost been a month, breathing excellently and feeling wonderful. Thanks for Dr. O’Bert, a wonderful doctor and a real life-saver.
