Dr. Roth Says:

We spend a long period of time discussing risk , benefit, and potential side effects to all procedures we perform. I let the patient make the choice to proceed after I have given them all the information.  Unfortunately I have no control over what medications cost.  Our office spends time trying to get the best medication for the patients condition at a reasonable price if we are provided...

I spent 40 minutes waiting for my appointment and specifically took off work on a day and time that I could see an MD at this practice, not an RN as I had seen previously and been dissapointed by her lack of answers and knowledge. Much to my dismay Dr. Roth spent less than a minute in the room with me, just to do a quick scan for moles and left. He did not display even the most basic courtesies (no greeting, no eye contact, did not ask if I had any questions, etc.).

I have been seeing Dr. Roth for many years now I see with every three months for psoriasis and yes while sometimes he is in a hurry my needs and care are always met. I know that on most days he sees over 100 people all while providing the best care possible not only have I recommended him to my family but also many I go to church with. His staff is fabulous always making me feel like family. He has never pushed any treatments or high priced medications on me. Not only a good Doc but a friend

I would like to start out by saying that I have never been to a Office where I did not have to wait at least an hour. This makes it very convenient for hard working single mothers. I have been dealing with a skin condition that has been misdiagnosed by several doctors and the filling of several prescriptions, both have cost a great deal of money. Dr. Roth took one look at me and knew what it was and what I needed to get better. He listens, is caring, considerate and staff friendly. Tawanda

I was very pleased with Dr. Roth at KY Dermatology. He knew exactly what my condition was & helped me receive the treatment I needed. I had been to several physicians & had several different treatments, this had been an ongoing issue & I was so happy to finally have some answers! I was also very pleased with all the staff members, they were super nice & were very understanding! Wait time was excellent! Very organized & clean office. I will be back to see Dr. Roth!

Dr Roth spent very little time with me on each visit. He seemed more interested in selling other products than taking care of my skin cancer. He nearly had me talked into a cream for age/sun spots until I found out it was $700 with insurance. He also talked me into laser treatments to rid myself of red veins in my face caused by rosacea, After the treatment I was so badly bruised and burned that I missed word for a week . I wont walk in that building again in my life.

Very knowledgeable. Seems disinterested in me as a patient. Simply wanted to diagnose, write a script, and move on to the next patient. May have spent 5 minutes in the exam room with me. Was not open to any input from me regarding my treatment.
