Patient Comments (2)
Tulsa, OK |
Rude and aloof. Had surgery-- never talked to me in preop or postop. No follow up appointment; no call from office to see if procedure was successful. Said to my driver, "tell her if it didn't work, find an ENT." Would not recommend him to anyone.
Tulsa, OK |
Dr. Roberts was rude and refused to offer satisfactory explanations of my condition and proposed treatment.
