O Fallon, MO |
Dr. O'Bert is an excellent surgeon and doctor. He is very involved at all times ... office visits, pre and post surgery and he does a great job of explaining all medical procedures. He has an excellent bedside manner and truly cares about his patients well being. He has operated on two of my teenage children and dramatically helped improve their medical conditions. We would highly recommend him!

I was nervous about a condition of my thyroid having a nodule/cyst on it. Dr. O'bert was able to show his concern professionally and listen to me on what I wondered about. He was very open and upfront on what my options were. I felt confident to proceed with the surgery and remove or do whatever would be the right thing to do. We made appointment and then even was able to get me in earlier before the Christmas holiday and heal before all the celebrating. My scar seems to have cleared up nicely
in Johnsonville IL |
Dr. Obert's staff and nurses are extremely nice and knowledgeable. There was practically no waiting they get you right in. Dr Obert's was patient, great listener, and an expert in his craft. He diagnosed my husband quickly and did surgery immediately. We had excellent care and couldn't be more happy with Dr. Obert. Definitely a doctor I would recommend to anyone.
in Chesterfield, MO |
After more than a year of trying to sleep with a wet washcloth over my mouth because my nasal passages were blocked, I saw Dr. O'Bert. My general practitioner misdiagnosed this for many months. Dr. O'Bert diagnosed the main problem in about 45 seconds. He did a quick visual inspection and followed up with an MRI scan that revealed still more issues. In an operation that took only about an hour he resolved all the problems - including one that was precancerous. I am very pleased with the results.
in O'Fallon, MO |
Dr. O'Bert & staff were extremely professional and on top of all the medical issues I had going on. I would recommend him to my family and friends!

Dr. O' Bert has performed two surgeries that I needed. One was done in 2012 and the other 2016 and each time I had surgery Dr. O'Bert was very informative,helpful, and very nice. If you need a wonderful, caring ENT Dr. O'Bert is your doctor.
in St Peters, MO |
Dr. O'Bert is a very professional and very courteous person. He took the time to explain the surgery needed to solve my problem, performed the necessary surgery, and then did followup procedures after surgery. Dr. O'Bert provided all the information I needed to recover from my surgery. He never seemed to be in a rush, and always answered my questions. I like him both as a doctor and a person...very easy to talk to. Yeah, I certainly would recommend him to my family and friends.
in St. Louis, MO |
This was my first surgery with Dr. O'Bert. He performed the nasal septum (deviated) and the inferior turbinate procedures just as he explained. The follow-up visit went very well (stint removal). I could not be more pleased with the results. I wish I had received the diagnosis years ago. Dr. O'Bert has performed literally hundreds (thousands?) of these procedures in his career and has a great "bedside" manner. I would not hesitate to allow him to do similar future procedures or recommend him.
in Chesterfield, MO |
Dr. O'Bert is an excellent surgeon who also has a caring manner toward his patients. My parathyroidectomy went surprisingly well.

Dr. O'bert is a wonderful physician. He has helped my 5 year old son who struggled with constant ear infections and strep throat. My son has had 2 surgeries with Dr. O'bert and we couldn't be happier with the results. He is very kind with great bedside manner. His staff is wonderful and very easy to work with. Thank you Dr. O'bert for all that you have done to help my son and a special thanks to the Ballas ENT staff. I highly recommend them!
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Obert and his staff were very professional and willing to give me as much attention and time as I needed. He gave me full confidence in the procedure and was very thorough in explaining the procedure before the surgery as well as what he found post surgery.

I have always had congestion my whole life I thought that it was normal, some days worse than others. Dr. O'Bert suggested turbinate reduction surgery to help correct this problem. I Could not be more happy with the results I could breathe immediately after surgery. In the two weeks since surgery my quality of life has improved greatly. I am so great full to Dr. O'Bert and his staff.

Dr. O'Bert is the best E.N.T. doc ever! I got a Tonsillectomy and he explained exactly the procedure and medication and explained to me the exact symptoms I would experience so that I wouldn't have any surprises while I recovered.

Dr. O'Bert was called into the OR while I was under anesthesia for back surgery. A tumor was found in my throat, surgery canceled and he was the one to handle the treatment for me. He is very attentive and knowledgeable and does not rush you out of the office. His staff is friendly and his office is comfortable. He performed 3 surgeries to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue. He was very thorough and by God's blessing and Dr. O'Bert's skills I can say that I am now cancer free!!
in St Louis, MO |
I had waited a long time for extensive septum and sinus surgery. I found Dr. O'Bert by doing my own research. I am a busy executive with little down time so needed someone very good, efficient and current on latest procedures. Dr. O'Bert is a very well educated younger otolaryngologist with great training. Very personable, knowledgeable and well liked and respected by his peers. Did great work and I was only out for 2 days. My highest recommendation.

in St Louis, MO |
I was referred to Dr. O'Bert for treatment of thyroid cancer. My first appointment was a consultation regarding treatment. My husband and I were impressed with the way he conveyed information. He was very thorough, but not to the point where he was "speaking" over our heads. He is professional, friendly and compassionate. He did an excellent job removing my thyroid, and I am healing nicely.
St Louis, MO |
Dr. O'Bert is an amazing Dr. He has performed the needed procedures on both of my children and has an amazing bedside manor. Very informative and very trusting Dr. I have recommended him to others and they as well have experienced how good he is.
in St. Louis, MO. |
I have been seeing Dr. O'Bert for several issues over the last couple of years. The most recent requiring surgery to remove a granuloma. I have found him to be an excellent , caring physician with a wonderful sense of humor which is great for putting the patient at ease. I can't see myself going anywhere else for ENT issues!
in Hoffman Estates, IL |
I highly recommend Dr. O'Bert for any ENT issue. He has seen my children, resulting in surgery for 3 of them, but the improvements they each noticed after they had healed was great. When a teenager ask why did they have to wait so long to have a doctor tell them what was wrong then correct it - they are tired of being sick. Dr. O'Bert has been professional every time and never rushed.
in St Louis |
If I could give ease of scheduling a negative rating, I would, along with friendliness of office staff. Once you get past that mine field , Dr Obert is pleasant and helpful enough.
in Hillsboro, MO |
We just love Dr. O'Bert and he is very helpful. The staff is very caring.
