What People Say About Dr. Rob O'Bert, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

I would give more stars if google allowed it! I actually ended up finding Dr O'Bert from my insurance company (Humana) and surprisingly he was in-network. I have had sinus issues, migraines, congestion and sever allergies all my life. I went in for a consultation and told him what was going on. Not only was I early to my first appointment, they brought me back and I saw Dr O'Bert before my appointment time! Very clean office as well. He recommended I get a CT scan so we can figure out a game plan. I was able to do that at the hospital immediately after my appointment and they called back the next day with my results. I had him perform a septum sinuplasty and clear out my sinuses. The whole process was very tolerable and after I had the splints removed and cleaned out my life is changed!!! I can breathe while I sleep now, my quality of life has gone up to the level of priceless by not having to suffer with poor breathing through my nose now. He is a very nice caring doctor.

Dr. O'bert was thorough and helpful from my very first visit. He didn't recommend surgery right away, but rather requested scans and talked through options with me. He was patient and understanding while I took my time to arrive at the surgery decision, and he did a fabulous job on the sinus surgery itself. I feel like a new person! Dr. O'Bert was fantastic in every way, as was each person in his office that I dealt with over the phone and during each office visit. Can't say enough wonderful things!

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!

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.

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
