Review of Dr. Roat

-Philadelphia, PA |

I was in his office for literally 2 hours and 45 minutes. When I asked one of the staff, she laughed and said, "Oh, it's always like this in here!" When Dr. Roat met with me, he was rushing the entire time and didn't take time to explain things thoroughly. They dilated my eyes, but never said that was going to happen. When I asked the nurse if I'd be able to drive home, she ALSO laughed at me and said yes. Guess what, I couldn't drive home & had to pull over because everything was blurry.

Review of Dr. Roat

- in Brookhaven, PA |

Dr. Roat treated me for allergies for over three months. When there was no improvement, I got a second opinion. I was diagnosed with lymphoma of the eye and eye orbit. They also insisted I pay a copy at every visit when my insurance company said it wasn't correct. My insurance company contacted them and they had to send me a check for all but the first visit. I would not recommend his practice!

Review of Dr. Roat

I would recommend Dr. Roat to anyone, no matter what level of eye care they need. When you are with him you are his sole focus. He listens to your questions and answers them all with respect and expertise. He is an excellent communicator who loves his work. Every visit is a positive, reassuring learning experience. Any medical student or medical school would be fortunate to have him as a professor. I am fortunate to have him as my ophthamologist.

Dr. Roat is a great doctor! He's listens and no question goes unanswered. He also takes the time to thoroughly explain what he's doing and why. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.
