My husband has been going to Dr. Paul Roa for a few years now. (We even followed him when he went to another practice) My husband had an accident in 2014, and after over a dozen surgeries was left with nerve damage & disabilities. Dr. Roa was the only Dr. that sincerely stopped and listened. He has always been understanding and patient even on the “bad days”. I highly recommend Dr. Roa if you’re looking for someone that will try to treat injury/symptoms/pain with alternative therapy & not just medication- he’s your guy. I wouldn’t trust my husband with any other long term pain doctor. - Ruth Smith

....... Shannon Cont'd: I love the fact on how professional my doc Paul Rao and his staff are The office has a sense of serenity, calming. NO DRAMA w/neither front end or back end staff. Dr Roa keeps a very busy schedule, nonetheless he's NOT the type of doc to keep you in his waiting room for an hr & see you for 5mins. He spends due tim w/his pts addressing & taking care where pain is consistent & real. From experience with his care plan for me, Dr Roa I'm confident will do the same for you!!

Dr. Paul Roa listened to my problem and was very caring and thorough with the exam. My hand was very bad and after a couple of injections I can use my hand again! The nurses and office staff are nice and very conscientious. They always return my calls and make sure my authorizations are ready for my appointment's. Great experience, highly recommend him!

Compassionate, caring, professional. Gifted interventionalist. I have been to multiple pain management doctors who only offered minimal Care at best. This Doctor is by far is the best of the best! I have an RN background, therefore a big expectation. he cares about me as a person. He is so compassionate. He is also the only interventionalist I trust with my back. You are a human being in this office, not just a number. He is the best, the doctors dock. Staff is wonderful as well. They all care.

I've been a patient of Dr. Roa for 3 years now. I've seen many other pain mgmt drs since my accident. He's not only considerate, patient and a great physician. He has been the only doctor to actually get me results. I absolutely wouldn't be able to work or live the life I am without him. Would recommend him to anyone that's struggling with chronic and acute pain.

Dr. Roa is a very special man. At a time in my life when my pain just over takes every daily activity, he is there with incredible support, compassion, solutions, knowledge and patience in making sure my every need is attended to and most importantly that I get better. I wish that every doctor I have to go to is as wonderful as he is. I feel confident I am in the best hands.

I have an immense gratitude for Dr. Paul Roa. My back pain was taken under control from day one. I was able to return to my regular working activities the following day. He took the time to explain the causes of my discomfort and also made me promise that I was going to improve my lifestyle and exercise a lot more. I followed his recommendations and my discomfort has reduced to almost 100%. Highly recommended professional.

Extremely unprofessional staff & conduct on behalf of the Doctor. Treats patients like a number instead of human beings. If you have to take a urine test, there's a high chance the staff will mislabel, or lose your lab altogether. The doctor who was in his position prior, Dr Daly was fantastic and extremely thorough, she would go out of her way to look for alternative methods to treating a patient as well as actually listening to what the patient says if questions needed answering.

If you just want to waste your time go for him. Do NOT let me perform any shot on you. He damaged my nerve and made my herniated disc so much worse than it was. The staff is laughable.

I feel so fortunate to have DR Roa. I initially came to him with chronic pains from a newly diagnosed neurological problem . I can tell you that not only is he an amazing DR but, also a beautiful human being that really cares about his patients
