Ruby Shoemaker
~ Patient

Dr. Roberts is a kind doctor. He knows my kids and husband name. He cares about his patients and he does not make you feel bad for needing medicine. He does not push medicine on you like some pain specialists. He truly wants the best of his patients. He is a great doctor that I would recommend to other people.

Melissa B. – Dec 04, 2019
~ Patient

I just started coming here this past year when my former doctor retired. I was worried I would not find a doctor as good as him, but Dr. Roberts has taken those fears away! He takes his time and explains everything to me. His nurses are great too, and always willing to help!

Mary H. – Dec 04, 2019
~ Patient

I have had a lot of back issues for 25- 30 years. Dr. Roberts is very genuine and prays with you. He will sit down and talk with you and understands the situation you are in, you just can’t find that anymore.
