I first saw Dr. Roberts in 1998. He has not only performed 3 separate knee surgeries (1 being experimental which has held up nicely -I just have really bad original equipment) as well as a wrist surgery that completely resolved my issues, but he has also treated several of my family members including my late mother-in-law a few years ago. She had fallen and broken her wrist and hip and he did both surgeries at the same time. I trust him with mine and my families lives. Best bedside manner!

I've been seeing Dr. Roberts for about 7 years now for knee injury and associated knee pain. He has been treating me with injections that relieve the pain. My primary care physician had referred me to Dr. Roberts originally thinking I would need knee replacement surgery, but Dr. Roberts prescribed injections to prolong the life of my "original equipment" while relieving the pain. His concern and advice as well as clearly defining my options for a treatment plan are why I highly recommend him.

I am now treating Dr. Roberts now due to a bad experience with Dr. Adam Crawford and his MA. Both doctors are at the same practice but my experience has changed for the better. Dr. Roberts is thorough, his MA Kelly is the greatest. She's very responsive unlike my experience with MA Monica with Dr. Crawford. All of the staff in his office are very pleasant. Dr. Roberts has put me on a conservative treatment plan which is working very well means that surgery is the last resort not first. I'm happy

He is the best doctor that I have ever used! I had a hip replacement & he was very caring & informative before & after surgery. He shows that he cares for his patients & takes his time answering your questions in and out of the hospital. I will definetly keep using him & refering him to everyone.

I had hip replacement surgery with Dr.Roberts in July 2015. I was up walking the night of surgery and in much less pain then I had been dealing with. He explained what would happen with the operation and what recovery would be like. I now have problems with my other hip and will not hesitate to have it replaced also. He has given me an active life back

Very kind and knowledgeable. I felt he was generally concerned with my recovery and was honest with me about my situation.
