Dr. Roach is an excellent physician. Its a shame that physicians are now considered employees and therefore are subject to the usual corporate benchmarks i/e time constraints, productivity etc.

Over the years I have established an excellent rapport with Dr. Roach. It helps that I have a PhD in biology and have direct research experience with many of the issues relating to my health. He shows the utmost respect for my thoughts and concerns.

Dr. Roach is unique in these times as he is extremely caring and always listens to any concerns. He is very thorough and explains things so a lay person can understand completely. He also makes sure everything is up to date. I my book he is the best!

I'm on maintenance medications so there was any need to give further info about the meds and any follow-up care.

During this latest visit, Dr. Roach seemed to be very much in a hurry. He said he was extremely busy. He usually is very interested in spending time talking with me about all my concerns. He usually does a great job explaining everything and asking me if I understand. I have seen him for many years and have been extremely satisfied with the care he has given me.

I just don't like Dr. Roach very much. his personality is not the greatest

I have and will continue to recommend Dr Roach as a physician
May 05, 2016
My prescription meds I have been on for awhile and need no explanations. The med he recommended for a second problem I have been having, which he recognized during my appointment I already knew what it was and its use. I did not bring up my second problem because it seemed more a newcense, which I felt or hoped it would eventually clear up. If not I would have brought it up at me regularly scheduled check up in 3 months. I was very pleased though when he did bring it up because he had picked up on my symptom, which only manifests itself once and awhile.
May 02, 2016
Dr. Roach is so very thorough in his care..I have been his patient for over 20 years and would recommend him highly
