Dr. Roark along with Dr. Dillon gave my late Grandmother back in 1993 an extra 10 years with her. They were the integral part in helping her get experimental TMR surgery at Duke University when her CABG surgery was failing.

As a retired healthcare provider with experience in emergency medicine (paramedic), general practice, oriental medicine and acupuncture physician, I would give Dr. Roark my highest rating for technical expertise and excellent patient care. In 2012 I had a life threatening cardiac medical emergency requiring an invasive procedure which Dr. Roark treated promptly and with skill. I highly recommend Dr. Roark.

Dr Roark was very comforting to me when I was very anxious about my heart catherization and subsequent heart stent. His bedside manner was very admirable. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs a Cardiologist
