MODERN MEDICAL CARE WITH TRADITIONAL PRIVATE PRACTICE VALUES...

country doctor smSince 1987, Dr. Robert Cole has maintained a surgical practice of the highest professional caliber within his serene office setting in the West Los Angeles / Santa Monica area.

Personal attention, thorough medical evaluations, impeccable quality care and strong patient communication is Dr. Cole's top priorities.  He spends considerable time with each of his patients, which is refreshingly unique in today's world where medical and surgical specialists seem too rushed to talk or listen effectively.

Developing trustful relationships with his patients is of utmost importance to Dr. Cole. He takes ample time to simplify and explain complex concepts and offers the best options for optimal outcomes.  It is important that the patient feel truly comfortable and fully understand the choices and procedures before them.  This kind of assurance puts his patients at ease before surgery which he believes may promote faster healing and an ongoing sense of well-being.

In his 25 year surgical career, Dr. Cole has specialized in hernia repairs.  The majority of his practice is diagnosing groin and abdominal pain using appropriate diagnostic testing to determine if the pain is associated with a hernia.  If a surgical procedure is appropriate, each procedure is performed in a state-of-the-art facility which has a diminished infection rate and more one on one nursing care.

All office visits and surgical procedures are performed by Dr. Cole himself, your care is never handed to a physician’s assistant.  He is always available to address whatever questions or concerns you may have. He can usually be reached 7 days a week/24 hours a day for his post-surgical patients.   On occasion, he has even been known to make housecalls.

Dr. Cole is often contacted by patients and physicians looking for an honest second opinion regarding the need for surgery.  If you find yourself unsure about the need for surgery, call our office to set up a second opinion appointment.

Make surgery a more relaxed, confident concept than you ever thought possible.  Call our office manager, Kim, for more details!
