Dr. Shirley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shirley "Dr. Robert Shirley is a native of Oklahoma. He attended medical school at Texas Tech University, and completed his general surgery residency at the University of Kentucky in Louisville. He and his wife, Heather, then moved to the east Texas area where he enjoyed a successful surgical practice for 9 years. The Shirley's relocated to the coast to be closer to family, and were drawn to the Sugar Land/Richmond/Rosenberg area because of the friendliness of the community and the vast array of amenities that the region has to offer. Dr. Shirley desired to become a surgeon at an early age, and considers improving his patients' health and increasing their longevity his lifelong calling. He specializes in board-based general, laparoscopic, and robotic surgeries, and is board certified by the American College of Surgeons. When away from the hospital, Dr. Shirley enjoys salt water fishing, golfing, biking, kayaking, and most of all, coaching & playing sports with his son, Daniel. He also participates in medical missions, and has had the opportunity to volunteer his services over the years in several villages in Ecuador and Malawi, Africa."

He has poor bedside manner. He was sarcastic, disingenuous, and exhibited very little thoughtfulness. My recovered surgeries do not aesthetically look great, which wasn't addressed with me beforehand.

Dr. Shirley was a great surgeon when I had to have my gall bladder out. I was nervous but he explained everything so well that I felt at ease going in. His staff is nice, too. I hope I don't have to have any more surgeries, but if I do, I know where to go!!

Dr. Shirley is knowledgeable, caring, and knows what he is doing!! He took time to answer all of my many questions about my procedure and I felt confident in him, which is so important when you are facing a scary surgery. My recovery was smooth and problem free. Thank you, Dr. Shirley!
