Kansas City, KS |
Seemed detailed and through, needs were put into consideration on the first visit. I'm finding it easy to transition over to Dr. Rosen after man years with atop Physician in another state.

Dr Roseman is very punctual. He takes care of my every health needs. He has managed my diabetes very well. My blood sugar is under control.
in Lawson, MO |
Have known Dr Rosen for years. Worked at NKCH and saw how good he was. Dr Rosen is highly intelligent with a lot of common sense. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. If Dr Rosen tells me I have a problem with my health I would trust him to .know. Dr Rosen is one of the best Doctors in Kansas City.

I was very impressed with Dr. Rosen; this was my initial visit. I feel I have made the right decision in choosing an endocrinologist.
in Kansas City, MO 64154 |
Dr. Rosen is a very exceptional Dr.. He listens well and helps me to understand my issues very well. Plus he is just a good guy!
in North Kansas City, Missouri |
If you have diabetes, he is the guy to trust with your diagnosis and treatment.
in Atchison, KS |
I'd definitely recommend him to family & friends. I think he's fabulous. Sometimes I feel like I'm just going to update statistics though. And my last visit, I froze in that room. And I was left in there for about an hour. Usually they're very prompt so I was not too happy. But I would still recommend him.
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Rosen is very understanding on any issue that you have and will give you answers to any questions or concerns that you may have, he is such a good Doctor!
Lumberton, TX |
Great listener, willing to work with other physicians, I think he stays on track with my condition.
Smithville, MO |
We talked about doing a fasting glucose test but the receptionist didn't schedule me. I gues there was a mix up with the lab no big deal. Will do at next visit. He also talked about doing a thyroid hormone uptake test that also was not scheduled. the scheduling receptionist was very rude and just dismissed my questions so I guess that will have to wait too.
in Weston, Mo |
I'm kind of a hard person to please but ever since the day I first met Dr. Rosen I have been both impressed and pleased. One example of his care for patients: I had a surgery which was not in his field but he had helped me get healthy enough to have this much needed procedure. Who do I see approaching my bed at pre-op? Dr. Rosen who wanted to be sure that my sugar levels were monitored carefully to prevent any incident. Now that's caring.
Milo, IA |
Yes I would.
Kansas City, MO |
Had an AWFUL experience. He spent 2 minutes with me, didn't listen to me, told me nothing was wrong, and drew a TON of labs. I keep getting billed for "unknown" things because the staff can't tell me what they are for. Office staff is rude and not helpful. I do not recommend this doctor to anyone. Stay away!!

Dr. Rosen is the most thorough MD that I have been to. I have full confidence that he will get to the bottom of my issue.
in Kansas City, MO |
I have been seeing Dr. Rosen for many years. I think he is the best! He is very intelligent and thorough, and I trust him completely. During my appointment yesterday we discussed several issues, one of which was that he recommended that I be seen by a urologist. However, we both forgot about it during other conversations, so I would like to know who he thinks I should see. I have recommended Dr. Rosen to many friends as the best physician I have ever had.
