Having recently moved here from Pennsylvania, finding a doctor like the one I left was very important to me. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Roche. He is friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and competent. I fully trust in what he says and he has always given me as much time and explanation as I need to feel confident in his medical plan for me.

Going to Dr. Roush’s office in Ocean City NJ has to be one of the worst experiences I have ever encountered. I went for standard physical and ended up not even having to take my shirt off. This place is a poor excuse for a physicians group, go anywhere but here!

Andrea in Cape May – Jun 20, 2017
Dr. Roche is the primary care physician for my 88 year old mother who suffered a stroke in July 2016. I could not be happier with the care he has given to her throughout the ups and downs of her recovery. He is very proactive and a wonderful listener and has been very open in taking phone calls from me when I have had concerns or issues to discuss. We never feel rushed when my mom has an appt with him and he is so thorough and caring. A real gentle soul. I would highly recommend Dr. Roche.

Dr. Roche is personable, professional and just plain likable! He has the unique ability to truly listen. When discussing my health issues I can see that he is intensely focused on what I am saying. Never have I felt rushed in any way. He has always taken however long is necessary. The doctor is also willing to work with me on treatment options that I've researched prior to my visit. Naturally, he offers his opinion, his advice and alternate treatment options. I've found a doctor I can relate to.
