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 are 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.

In a surgical career that spans over 25 years, Dr. Cole has specialized in abdominal (hernia, gallbladder, intestinal) and breast surgery. If a surgical procedure is the right course of action, each procedure is performed in a state-of-the-art facility.

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!
