Provider Reviews

He has been treating my wife and me for the past 32 years. You could not have a more caring physician. He is concerned, very detailed, patient focused with clear guidance and instructions.

Review for Dr. Roddy

Office visits are the only way to talk to the Dr. Doesn't really want to hear your concerns. Had a microdisectomy done and still have the same pain in my right leg. Told me his treatments are done and to refer back to workmanscomp. I'm only 36 and just want my back to feel better!

Mike Jun 27 2022

Review for Dr. Nemecek

Dr. Margo was wonderful, very caring and to the point. She gave her recommendation and we went with it. So glad we did as my Mom was able to get into surgery the next day. Thank you so very much!

Sherri Davis May 21 2022

Review for Dr. Kozinski

5 star for his care and one star for the health care environment these good MD's must work under. I have been under his care for 5 years (I am 84). He seems to be totally in tune with my well being. He is reachable on a personal level.
