Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McRoberts "Dr. McRoberts believes pain is an extremely complex disease state, neuro-physiologically, musculo-skeletally and psychologically. It is never a single system problem and the treatments available, be they medical, surgical or interventional all present various considerations. His aim is to help find your path through them: least risk, most benefit. He hopes that in understanding the deepest mechanisms of pain he can reveal your pain's weakness and treat you.

Lastly, he is credentialed to do every and all current interventional procedures, and has performed many tens of thousands of procedures safely and effectively."

I called in and they put me on hold 3 times, each time they asked me the same question. It frustrating, can't imagine once I get it. Anyway the 3rd person said the dr requires an MRI before i can see them. They didn't even ask me what my issue was. No thanks.

This frustrates me too very much. The hospital, Holy Cross, is in control of the hire and fire. While I have many excellent staff, a couple routinely drop the ball. I am trying to get that ironed out with the hospital. Luckily, my clinical team is Aplus I cannot present a perfect team, with healthcare cuts, increasing costs, and burdensome documentation and clerical demands. However, I will treat you as if you were my own family member. My sole aim is clinical excellence, best in Florida.
