Patient Reviews

Dr. Kevin Roth is a concerned, gentle, and thorough physician. I'm in good hands with his knowledge and expertise. He doesn't rush the appointment, listens to the
questions, and answers them to my satisfaction. I like his conservative approach, never felt pushed to do something aggressive or uncomfortable for my situation. - Deborah L.

I am so blessed to have been treated by Dr. Roth and his staff (Chris and Chrissy). They were most professional and compassionate in their treatment of my leg injury. I so appreciate their care and concern for my welfare and spending the time necessary to explain the recovery process. Should I ever break another bone, Dr. Roth and his staff will definitely be my first choice to help me through the healing process. - Cheryl Z.
