What People Say About Dr. Robert Hruby, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Was assigned Dr Hruby through ER for appendicitis. When he realized I wouldn’t be a typical - easy laparoscopic procedure his attitude changed. He was rude, condescending, unprofessional and completely uncaring. I wound up staying in the hospital for 2 nights and 3 days mostly because the nursing staff couldn’t get in touch with him to get me released. When he finally did grace us with his presence he literally stood over me in my hospital bed and argued with my family! I don’t trust him.

Dr Hruby was the surgeon assigned to me when I was admitted to the hospital with a gallbladder attack. I was kept in the hospital for two days with nothing done. I was released to go home and told to follow up with his office. I called the following day and it took them 2 days to call me back to refer me to a doctor that doesn’t do the procedure he wanted me to have done. What a waste of time and money. Very unprofessional! Wouldn’t recommend him to anyone!!!!!!!!

I love this Dr. Had gall bladder removed. After going to twin cities hospital in pain due to gall stones they referred me to him. Was able to get appointment within a week. Staff is friendly, not a long wait. He explains things where you can understand them. After surgery his nurses were calling to check on me, needed a prescription but couldn't get it. So the nurse dropped it off at my pharmacy for me which was an added plus. The care I received from them and sacred heart was awesome.

Dr. Hruby removed my appendix on Oct 4, 2016 at Sacred Heart, Emerald Coast. Great personality and I had excellent results. No pain meds after surgery. Went home next day. Just very lucky and blessed to have him care for me. Jim Richardson

Dr. Hruby is so wonderful. I went to see him over some colon issues. He listened to all my concerns and took the action needed. I would and will recommend him to everyone I know in the future. I will say he is the best DR I have ever seen. The staff is very friendly and always understanding.
