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.

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.
