My regular Doctor asked which Surgeon I would prefer to look at my condition and I chose Dr. McRoberts. I have always heard good things and my prior experience with him and his staff has always been great. I was quickly greeted and promptly put in an exam room. Shortly after that Dr. McRoberts meet with me and the best course of action was agreed upon. I was one again pleased with my experience and am scheduled for surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his services.

Dr. McRoberts was outstanding. He took the time to understand my medical history and then explained my condition thoroughly. In addition being new to town he made 2 referrals to other providers which was very helpful. Best experience I have had with a physician in many years.

We were very pleased with his thoughtful and thorough explanations. Even beyond that he consulted both with his colleagues at Portneuf Medical Center as well calling a pancreatic specialist at the Univ of Utah Medical Center. It put our mind at ease over different issues. Very friendly and patient in spite of being very busy. We consider the business a plus not a negative. The best are worth waiting for.

I do not disregard Dr. McRoberts intentions, but he fails miserably. He is probably a great surgeon but he is too busy. This past surgery will be last preformed by him and the very last at Portneuf Medical Center. The recovery room after surgery is the WORST with the WORST nurses. I was out the door of the hospital before I was even fully conscious and he never came to see after. He is always too busy and late and full or excuses. He received a 2 because I'm still alive.
