Dr. Roberts was wonderful in every way: He very thoroughly discussed various forms of treatment available for my knees. We both decided that knee replacement surgery would definitely be needed but decided to wait because I had injections of hyaluronic acid into both knees and was starting to feel improvement. He suggested I carefully phase back into an exercise program in a very gradual way. I would highly recommend Dr. Roberts to family and friends.

I experienced an excellent staff and management of visit from arrival to scheduling of a referral. Dr. Roberts was on point in his questions and the answers he gave me.

Dr. Roberts and the entire Rebound organization are simply the best. Having a knee replacement surgery was not an easy decision to make but was definitely the right decision. Dr Roberts team made every step in the process clear, the surgery and rehab was successful beyond my expectations and I would enthusiastically recommend Dr Roberts and Rebound to anyone considering this procedure.

Dr. Roberts is not only an expert in his field, but he is a truly likable guy that gives you all the time and information you could possibly need or want. This man's expertise and experience coupled with his kind bedside manner is a rare gift in today's medical world! As a nurse of over 20 years, I feel very fortunate to have met this gem in our field and am confident having him do my knee replacement. In addition, the Rebound Staff are all so kind and professional.

I will be celebrating 3 months with my new knee; Dr Roberts was my surgeon, and today played nine holes of golf, shared 3 buckets of balls on the driving range and practiced my chip shots with my husband. Walking on the golf course is great strength building for my knee with the soft grass and uneven terrain. Dr Roberts replaced my other knee four years ago and cannot thank he and his team enough for giving me back my power to enjoy walking and playing without pain. The Rebound team was awesome.

I have had a 3/4 scope +maniscus tear fix with Dr. Roberts , and on Dec 23nd , 2016 a emergency knee drain on 4:30 PM after a full day of surgery for Dr. Roberts, Kyle , and the staff . It's amazing to me how great these Doctors are at surgery , pre-ventive surgery, rehab, and in checking thoroughly all possibilities before putting their patients through surgery . I would give them 6 Gold Stars to family and friends if it was available .

May 19, 2016 Dr. Roberts replaced both my knees. I will be 74 yrs old on 12/11/2016 Prior to surgery I had very limited motion and considerable pain. After 4 months of rehab I went deer hunting for 4 days. I walked 6 miles the 1st day. No pain. Two miles were uphill. I can climb stairs and ladders easily now. In October I went elk hunting. Walked many miles comfortably. Got a 6x7 bull elk on the 4th day. I have a new lease on life. God Bless Dr. Roberts & Rebound

Dr. Roberts did a meniscus repair & a total replacement on my knees. He was professional, knowledgeable and explained both procedures in terms I could understand. He is kind and funny, with a bed-side manner I appreciated. He (and his staff) made me feel comfortable, confident and at ease with the whole process. Thank you for developing the informative knee replacement program I received before surgery. He, Kyle & Staff all made me feel a part of "the team" and all my questions were answered.

I had a full knee replacement, and Dr. Roberts was excellent. I can't recommend him highly enough.
in Garibaldi,OR |
Dr Roberts was referred to me by my doctor. Dr Roberts and his staff were the friendly and helpful through the entire process. I was treated with respect, no question went unanswered. I'm 12 weeks out from my knee replacement and I'm thrilled with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Roberts and his entire staff.

Dr. Roberts is the best and most competent orthopedic surgeon I've had experience with. Praise for his knee replacement expertise is well-deserved and painstakingly earned. He and his entire have excellent rapport with patients and he talks in plain English using terminology a lay person can easily understand. His knee replacement program at Rebound is top-notch making the procedure and recovery almost enjoyable! The 8th floor facility at Southwest Washington Medical Center is awesome.
in Kelso, Washington |
Friendly, approachable, experienced, research based, highly knowledgeable, efficient and helpful and skillful team. Staff throughout system highly regarded him and his expertise, and said they have or would have him do their knee replacement... I often heard, "He's the best." I agree! Thank you Dr. Roberts...
