Dr. R was running behind so was quick, but we received the information we need for now. We discussed remaining questions with his RN after the exam.
My husband said the doctor was great. He definitely knew what he was doing. I appreciated the after visit summary in the portal as well since I wasn't able to go with them. Very great team and facility over all. Thank you!
*Dr. Roberts has been great, but recently felt like her pain wasn't a big deal until we saw every specialist then discussed a surgical option which is last resort got 2nd/3rd opinion.
Doctor was knowledgeable and kind. Visit with him was incredibly brief. Child wasn't fully comfortable since everything was so abrupt.
Dr Robert's = awesome.
Dr. Roberts is amazing and I wouldn't see anyone else
Would like the doctor to direct conversation more to my daughter
Dr. Robert's is AMAZING at what he does. He listens and really engages with his patients. He is caring and takes the time to explain things at all times. He is a true leader at what he does and all Doctor's should be like him. Thank you!
Will recommend doctor to our friends and family!
He was great!
