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.
