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

As always, my visit with Dr. Roberts was outstanding. He attentively listened to all of my questions and comments. He answered questions thoroughly and provided easy to understand explanations. Dr. Roberts also did a nice job of asking probing questions to explore a potential cardiac issue.My husband and I both appreciate Dr. Roberts' approach to patient care and would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. James P. Roberts is what I call an "above & beyond" physician. Besides being a genius in his field, he is courteous, professional and most of all he sincerely cares about his patients. He's skilled, genuine, he listens and he has a very pleasant and positive demeanor. The Medical asst's.are "top notch" as well as the phlebotomist, and the professional and friendly receptionists in the front office.

This was my first visit with Dr. Roberts as a new patient for regular check up. Because my records from my prior doctor were not available, I think, that the check up was somewhat at a disadvantage to be a thorough as it could have been. I'm encouraged that follow up meetings will be more productive to understanding my general health.

Dr. Roberts has always been an amazing doctor. I sometimes can wait a little longer, but I know he is taking his time with other patients. When I see him he always listens and helps with my concerns and always takes his time I never leave the office feeling pushed out or not listened to. Dr. Roberts hands down is the best provider I have ever been with and I've seen many due to my father's military career. Whenever I see a post on Facebook people looking for a provider I always highly recommend Dr. Roberts.

I had Covid-19 recently and my main concern was to check the damage that had caused in my lungs or other organs , also because I'm feeling the after math of the virus like fatigue and pressure on my chest , headache and ankle pain and leg pain if I walk or Standing up, but he didn't seem to want to have any testing done , he only checked the part of my neck and listen to my lungs and he said that I should just get better with time . I do understand that perhaps it's a virus and it should go away but because of the severity of this virus I think he should try to do other test like blood work to see if ur body is working or recovering because my husband had the same issue and in Kaiser hospital they did testing and found out that he had pneumonia due to COVID so I think they should try to have more lab work or test done.

It was a lot of waiting. Generally its not a big issue if I am the patient, but with a baby it is due to feeding and sleep times being disrupted . That makes the baby fussy and makes the whole visit not a very pleasant one.

I got in to see Dr Roberts very soon after I called following a visit to a hip specialist. Dr Roberts also arranged an immediate ultra sound that confirmed his initial concern and followed up quickly with making arrangements for a general surgeon to contact me. Great reactions, as usual, from his office.

Dr Roberts inspected my ears regarding the wax that was interfering with my hearing. He recognized the sensitivities of the location of the wax relative to the ear drum, and he made decision to not go after it himself and instead refer me to ENT physician. I appreciated this, and this decision gave me even more confidence in Dr. Roberts and his ability to ensure my good health.

The bad related to the visit have to do with inability to get scheduled in the lab downstairs. It's now extremely frustrating to get a morning blood draw for those of us who have to fast. Also, narrow parking spaces remains your biggest problem. It hasn't changed in years, yet you've known about it forever. Please do something about the lab and parking

This was my first visit to this office and Dr. Roberts. Dr. Roberts was great, reviewed my medical history, asked questions, listened, didn't present a rushed feeling. I will stay with Dr. Roberts until I don't, but I do not see that happening anytime soon at present. Really was professional, caring and informative. I hope to have a partner in health with Dr. Roberts.

they were running late and it took awhile before we were seen. however the medical assistant gave my Daughter a goody bag to keep her busy and kept us in formed and apologized for running late. that means that the doctor took his time with each patient and wasnt rushing just because he was a little behind. not the doctors fault he was behind it just meant he was giving extra care and attention to a patient that needed it. dr Roberts and his staff are amazing, kind, helpful and go the extra mile to provide top notch care

I live in Assisted Living and have been in lockdown and quarantine status for almost nine months. This doctor and his staff have worked with me diligently to keep me updated and informed. I have never had a bad experience with this Clinic or any of its doctors. I am [age removed], hard of hearing and they treat me and my questions with most respect. I have been unable to leave quarantine until this visit and it was very well handled for my safety and reassurance at all levels

He also was willing to write me a referral to a specialist which is why I made the appointment in the first place.

I called that morning to be seen for a chronic sore throat, and was given an appointment that day. I wasn't made to wait long in the waiting room or patient room. Dr. Roberts is a very good listener, appears to have reviewed my information before asking me questions/making recommendations, and most of all, allows me to join in the decision making about next steps.

Dr. Roberts is always so kind and pleasant to see during my annual physical. He takes so much time to listen and never makes me feel rushed to get the appointment done. I also really like that he takes a moment to actually think about the questions I ask and not just fire off a generic medical answer. He really makes me feel like he cares about my health and that of my whole family. We look forward to having him as our family doctor for years to come!
