He is a good doctor but the only problem he has is that he just wants to run out of the office without listening to your questions. Patients are not medical students so pay attention to them and give them the time they deserve.

Dr. Roper is a very caring doctor. He removed my pituitary cyst and visited me when I was hospitalized. He was even willing to discuss with me over the phone regarding my pituitary cyst before I decided to have a surgery. His staff members are also very kind and professional. Thank you so much Dr. Roper.

I cannot express how grateful I am to Dr. Roper who performed my surgery. Very professional, explained in great detail and in "plain language" the surgery that had to be done and what to expect during recovery.

Dr Roper removed a pituitary tumor and I had no complications, went home the next day. He was straightforward, inspired confidence, and communicated well during the whole process. Shands is the place to go in my opinion.
