About Me:

I chose a specialty in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine to care for patients from infancy through adolescence and into adulthood. My career has allowed me to care for those from all walks of life and reinforces my philosophy that the most important attribute of a caregiver is the ability to listen to their patient. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family, hiking, gardening and being a "foodie" with my wife.

I hadn't needed medical assistance or the need to meet with Dr. Roberts. I actually had not seen the doctor and I was told that after 3 yrs. They actually discontiue me from his services but Angie worked diligently to acquire my appointment in a very timely manner. Thank you Angie. The desk staff had smiles and greeted me very professional. Dr. Roberts listened to my concerns and addressed them very professionally. He was very easy to talk with and share some ideas with me. I asked for a blood work up and a urine analysis he was very accomidating. I received my information on My Health in a timely manner and spoke with his assistant and a suggestion by the doctor. In all a very wonderful experience.

Good experiences

  Dec 16, 2022
Great doctor and office.

  Dec 14, 2022
Lab on 2nd floor ALWAYS closes BEGORE noon, so they can use the time they should be serving patients to ready themselves to have their duties all caught up to be out the door at the stroke of 12. I've been turned away more than once. One time the doors were locked at 11;50. It's a bit of a trek only to find it closed.

  Dec 14, 2022
Dr. James Roberts is very personable and very knowledgeable every visit. He is so wonderful that we did everything in our power to follow him from a previous office and we pray that he is ALWAYS our family's doctor!!!!

The worst part of my visit is the parking garage. The spaces are too small for a normal sized car and as such, many cars fill two spaces. This has been noted many many times, but Legacy doesn't seem to care about this aspect of patient service/satisfaction.

In the 9 states and 4 countries that I have lived in and the 105 I have visited or worked in Dr. James Roberts is the absolute best doctor that I have ever had the extreme privilege of knowing.

Dr Roberts is very patient great listener to concerns and truly feels like he puts the well being of his patients first. He is one of the only providers I have found that gives me the time and courtesy and really listens to what my concerns are Re; my health and medical problems I have been going thru. Very rare these days when everyone is just rushing patients in and out to meet time frame and not go over the allotted appointment time allowed

  Jul 29, 2022
Great listening skills.Good, honest feedback.

  Jul 26, 2022
The person in the information desk in the first level at the hospital entrance was not helpful to tell me where and what level of the doctor's office is located at.

  Jul 25, 2022
The lab on 2nd floor was closed before 3pm. The lab on the 1st floor was empty of patients. Nobody going in or out for at least 20-25 minutes. Then the check In process needs a lot of work. Never have I gone to a lab where they take you down a hall to a cubicle to register, then back to the waiting room for another 20 minute wait to get into the lab with no other patients. Completely unacceptable.

  Jun 17, 2022
Excellent care. One concern: my medical records had huge serious errors that Dr. Roberts caught and is working to correct. They were not things generated by Dr Roberts. My diagnosis was listed as morbid obesity, myocarditis, and congestive heart failure. None of that is true nor has it ever been true. Neither of us could figure how those things got into my chart. I am grateful to Dr Roberts for catching this immediately. I am deeply concerned about how it happened and the confusion it could cause if it is not immediately corrected.

  Jun 14, 2022
My provider provided very relevant information about the prescription medication I am taking, and very evidently keeps up to date with medical practices and understanding.
