I chose Dr. Roche as primary care physician for my elderly mother. He treats her like a regular patient, meaning he doesn't simply attribute her symptoms to old age and ignore them. He listens and takes action to make improve her health. He is exactly what I was looking for in a doctor for her. It's easy to get appointments, wait time is minimal. His nurse is excellent and they are responsive to communications outside of office visits.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr Roche for a number of years. Years ago my wife was having abdominal pain. We were seeing another Dr at the time. She was diagnosed with acid re-flux. The pain continued and we saw Dr Roche because he had a cancellation and we could see him the quickest. He immediately ran some test and sent her to the ER. She had gall stones in her gall bladder and bile duct and pancreatitis. She had surgery and recovered completely. He is the best.
