Where I see patients

Legacy Medical Group-Salmon Creek Family Medicine

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.

Education:
Residency: Tulane University
Medical School: University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill

Dr Roberts is very attentive and timely. He is a good listener and responds appropriately to questions that I've had in the past in regards to, my sons care and such. Dr. Roberts also gives all the necessary information, discusses it with me and then lets me decide what's best for my child's care, which is greatly appreciated.

Dr. Roberts is a very kind person and a good listener. He is also a very good doctor. He was able to help me keep both my diabetes and high blood pressure under control which is a problem I struggled with for many years. I am very fond of him.

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

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.

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.

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.

I love Dr. Roberts. He take's time to really listen to me. There are things that Specialist found or said to me that weren't in my files. Like a 75% blockage and a pocket in my throat. He found nothing about that.

The dr's visit for physical was overshadowed by a severe onset of arthritis in one knee. The dr. Spent a lot of time evaluating the problem and is currently treating this pain with tests and medication. He was so kind and understanding. I am hopeful he will follow up with an orthopedic referral if the pain continues. He has my total confidence and that of my family. HIS STAFF AND MEDICAL PAGE CONTACTS TO HIS TEAM WORK VERY WELL WITH CONTACTING HIM AND ARE SO KIND.

This was my first visit with Dr Roberts and my experience was excellent with him and his supporting staff. One improvement I would make, I spend an hour or so filling out a questionnaire online, and when I got to the office I was required to do it again by hand. There seems to be a fundamental disconnect in your system between the front desk check-in and what's already in the system. The redundancy seems to be inefficient, confusing and perhaps costly. Other than that, it was a great experience and I really appreciate the heroic effort of your health care team.
