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 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.

Amazing! Excellent ENT! Much gratitude! – Jan 14, 2020

Terrible experience! Ordered several tests over several months, not able to offer any medical input! More of an 'NT than a ENT, after ordering a very expensive battery of test very expensive tests, CT, MRI, and Audiology Testing over the span of months, all he's able to say is he recommends a otologist!? I thought we were seeing an EAR nose and throat doctor, but It seems like we were just made to pay for enough test to satisfy his ego that he would be able to diagnose a condition that obviously seems beyond his capability. Completely disappointed, i guess he may be fine if you need Amoxicillin for an ear ache, but if you need real medial input look elsewhere!

I had been going to a different doctor in the same immediate area who was entirely unresponsive. I'd been having trouble breathing through my nose and had frequent nosebleeds and nasal infections. After about a years worth of trips to that doctor I switched to Dr. O'bert. The first visit he checked on the problem and almost immediately said "You have a deviated septum." I would have thought the other doctor would have been able to diagnose that as well. Dr. O'bert did the septoplasty as well as revising a large scar on my neck that was improperly completed by the other doctor. I no longer get infections on that scar, nor do I have to look for volunteers to pull hairs out of any of the glaring irregularities that were left prior to O'berts revision.

I had a deviated septum operation performed on July 17th 2019 by Dr O'Bert. He was very professional, confident, and thorough. He has a good bed side manner and the most important thing is I can now breathe fully without drugs or holding my nose open to get air. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. O'Bert was able repair several complications with sinus scar tissue and a deviated septum. He has amazing bedside manner, is very informative and transparent and honest. Dr, O'Bert's surgical skills are also second to none! After all the work I had completed in one day I was hardly sore and had zero bruising and a rapid recovery. IN addition his staff is wonderful and helpful.
