    Excellent. I have and will recommend him and his office. I have had a knee and a hip replaced with no complications. Everything was explained before hand and completely done as expected.

    Dr. Roberts replaced both knees. He spoke to me and my family in terms we could understand. He was very honest and straightforward through the entire process. I was very comfortable in the decisions we made and knew the reasons why. Would highly recommend to anyone needing knee or hip replacements.
