Specialties

Dr. Robert J Corba has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Great doctor!

I've been a patient of Dr. Corba's for at least 18 years, first when he had his own office and since he has been at OAA. He is an excellent doctor with much skill and empathy. If there has been a need for him to spend more time with me he does, I have never felt rushed. He's been willing to offer help by suggesting whatever he believes might help me even though he may not provide them. Over the years if errors have been made within the system I contacted his office and they were prompt to correct them. On one occasion I waited over an hour to see him for a procedure. He was apologetic and explained the situation to my satisfaction. Sometimes things happed that aren't predictable. If one is experiencing pain at anytime it must be expressed so that he and his staff are aware and can take action. Communication is most important and I have felt it has been handled well by him and his staff.

Hardly worth the wait

A six to eight week wait to get in, a bedside manner that leaves a lot to be desired and the arrogance of a pro-wrestler. Seek treatment elsewhere - he's not worth it! Years ago he was good but he has lost touch with reality in the last few years. Maybe it's the fact that OAA is losing ground in the market and he's an owner? No idea, but he's not what he used to be, which was professional!

One Star

Dr. Corba is rude, arrogant and unprofessional. Don't waste your time with this Dr.. He has a major God complex. See a Dr. who cares about quality patient care instead of money and prestige.
