Dr. McRoberts' Care Philosophy

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.

    I had my second visit today with Dr McRoberts, today he was going to spin my Blood and use the platlets in a double epidural injection, and then he gave me 4 trigger point injection, He was 99% painless, hie personality is above and beyond what I have found in Doctors in South Florida,I have met many spine pain specialist especially living in Boca Raton but never one like him. I even recommended him to my neighbor who fell in love with his personality and his gentleness.

    I flew down from New York to See. Dr. McRoberts to see him regarding my spinal stenosis as I had heard from my doc up in NY that he is one of the most trusted in the US regarding real minimally invasive options for spinal stenosis as opposed to the "laser spine" stuff you see everywhere and which is generally considered malarky. It took a while to get in to see him, and that is my only main issue. I consider that a good thing though, clearly he has a following. In short order he quite accurately
    Thanks Mr. H. Ill look forward to seeing you soon. PM

    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.

    He is smart, honest, caring, and very pleasant. Dr. McRoberts has been treating me for the last two months for severe pain in my neck and back, and now, I am almost completely out of pain. He is my physician for life, and I will refer all my friends and family members to him because I know they will be in good hands.

    Very very knowledgeable and self confident! The best so far after years of very bad doctors in Boca!!!
