Dr. Royer was very sympathetic to my problem. She took time to listen to me and my concerns. She told me surgery was not necessary at this time and I appreciate her being honest with me. I wouldn't hesitate going back to her in the future.

I was in a car accident and Dr. Royer fixed me up. She and her staff took good care of me.
in Marion, IA |
She fixed my hernia. She was professional and took time explaining everything to me when I had questions.
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa |
My experience with this doctor was horrible. She did my surgery and didn't help me afterwards at all with pain maintenance. She honestly didn't care about how I felt. The office even messed up my appointments. I do not recommend her at all. A PA told me that she's new so she doesn't know what she's doing yet.
