in La Porte, TX |
Would not recommend Dr. Roberts; was rude & disrepectful to us in office; did fair job on wife's rotator cuff few yrs ago but developed painful symptoms again. Dr. Roberts refused to acknowledge horrendous pain involved rotator cuff. MRI clearly showed serious issues. He more or less told us nothing more he could do, leave & don't come back! His exact words were, "I wish you well." A more professional orthopedic has since fixed her shoulder right!

Dr. Roberts staff is extremely inefficient and unprofessional. The orders x-rays were not sent twice. It took 3 days for them to schedule an MRI and then only after I complained. I had the impression from the doctor he wanted me scheduled the day I saw him. They failed to renew one prescription and never sent another one to the pharmacy. it took 6 days for them to contact a physical therapist after the doctor told me to begin aggressive physical therapy immediately.

Poorly managed office. At least an hour and a half wait for both of our appointments. The receptionist told me, "it is always like this" when I inquired about rescheduling. If it is always like this make adjustments to provide better care. Patients matter.

I'm impressed!

Dr. Roberts has been very helpful in the healing process of my knee and has informed me in different ways including exercises to help me.
in Deer Park, TX |
Im my opinion, the worst experience I have ever had with a surgeon and his office. Much needed paperwork is handled as slow as possible. They have said they lost paperwork needed for fmla and other things. The incompetence from this office has cost me money and my job. Do not expect anything handled in a timely manner unless it is taking your money. I have had several visits to his office and my longest wait time was over 3 hours for an appointment that was scheduled weeks in advance.

Dr. Roberts was very professional and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with him completing the surgery on my ankle.
in Richmond, TX |
Great Experience he takes his time answering my questions.
in Pasadena Texas |
I was left in horrible pain. All I was prescribe was Tylenol3 with a knee surgery. I'm in horrible pain. This doctor don't think in the suffering pain afterwards. Today is barely24 hous after surgery and can't bare this pain. I won't recommend a cruel doctor that sits on a high house. And don't beleive in having his patients free of pain. Never again will this doctor ever will touch me again. Don't recommend Dr Edwards Roberts. In Pasadena, Texas

He is a great dr. Explains everything to you. Good bed side manners. My husband had a rotor cuff surgery it was so bad Dr. Roberts wasn't sure if he could fix it the next step would be shoulder replacement but he got in there and repaired it and is doing great.
in Baytown, TX |
Dr. Roberts is very attentive to his patients. My wife and I have both been attended to by him.

Very good experience. Dr. Roberts took the time to explain in as technical terms as I needed what was wrong with my arm and why his recommended treatments would work to fix it. I felt very comfortable with my visits there.
Houston, TX |
He knows what he's doing. He told me exactly what I needed to know. He prescribed the right treatment for me. I would recommend him to anyone!
in Nassau Bay, Texas |
Dr. Roberts was the ultimate professional. He gave me all the time I wanted to discuss my 88 year old mothers hip surgery, prior to and after her successful surgery. His staff are a reflection of him, friendly, knowledgable and they treat you with common courtesy. How a super busy surgeon can spend as much time as he does with patients is beyond me. What a good and decent man and one heck of a surgeon. 5 stars.
in Friendswood, TX |
Dr. Roberts and his staff are pretty impersonal by professional enough. The day of surgery there was an obvious error in scheduling. I arrived at 9 AM, waited in a waiting room for over 2 hours. Then after getting my IV, waited an additional 3 hours before Dr. Roberts arrived, and I left just before 6 PM. No apologies or explanation. Was frustrating, but surgery went well. Then they messed up my post-op appt. schedule afterwards, so had to remove staples myself. There are MANY better options.
in Pasadena, TX |
Dr. Roberts takes the time to tell you options of treatment. He answers all questions and concerns you may have. In my case, he explained the surgery, approximate recovery time and rehab time. Excellent doctor.
in La Porte, Tx |
Dr Roberts is awesome. They got me in within one day and supported my every need. With Dr Roberts and physical therapy my knee is back to the way it was. For sure i would go back to Dr Roberts if I ever have another need.
in Pasadena, TX |
very informative and friendly
