San Mateo, CA |
Dr. Roth is awesome. Very professional and thorough. Great person - authentic and caring. Gentle bedside manor. We had several wide ranging discussions about my treatment options, the latest research, and I felt supported throughout the process. When my MRI results were available, he called and we had an extensive discussion by phone as well. His fellowship training (after med school) at Kerlan-Jobe is the best place in the country to train in sports medicine/orthopedic surgery. I highly recomme
