I have seen Dr. Royalty 3 times now. Each time has been a good experience. While my issue is only anxiety / depression. Each visit has been great & I left feeling understood & listen to.

1st visit, ordered blood tests to see why I am tired. For weak right ankle (tendon), no exam but ordered x-rays of both feet, right ankle, right knee. Promised to review disabilty disagnosis and have ADA letter for work at follow-up. Next day he ordered antibiotic-worked ok for about a week. At follow-up,said x-rays showed nothing (surprise?), no exam or diagnosis. Get better shoes and phys therapy for ankle. Did not mention blood tests. Did not mention ADA letter. Drink caffeine for tiredness.

Went to Dr. Royalty needing a med diag for severe violent right buttock/upper thigh, and lower back pain; he did not perform a medical examination of centralized localized pain area; began to rx antidepressants aka nerve pain meds; could not tolerate; he called in another one w/serious side effects; still no diag. I went for his medical expert diagnostics and still no diagnosis. Asked via phone for Neurologic referral, to this date have not rec'd referral. Not sat w/level of care at this point.

My experience has been great I have cancer and he is always compassionate with me and my family. Always listens to my concerns and consoles me as I cry. His entire family shows me love by drawing pictures and making cards. Could not have a better doctor

Dr. Royalty says...

I treat typical acute and chronic conditions for adults and children. I enjoy seeing newborns, infants, toddlers, children, teens, adults, and the elderly. The variety is why I chose family medicine. 

I completed a fellowship in sports medicine from the University of Kentucky. The experience and skills gained in the fellowship has made keeping my active patients going a favorite of mine. 

I am generally a "less is more" type of doctor. I don't believe a pill is always a good choice. I believe excess prescription use happens frequently. I am particularly prudent with antibiotics. I also no longer prescribe  chronic pain medications. 

I am experimenting with a fast track program for my patients.The program would provide true walk-in care for certain conditions - no call to office required. It would operate like an urgent care and be of likely benefit to people with young children, and those patients in good health in need of sick visits. 

Dr. Royalty says...

With my experience in sports medicine, I am quite comfortable providing shoulder and knee injections. I do require a recent X-ray prior to any injection.
