I am not just being overly exuberant here. Dr. Roberts did all of this and more. He did not talk down to me. I got all of my questions answered and am confident that he will find the source of my problem. I felt that, for the duration of my appointment, I was his total focus. He didn´t spend overly much time on the computer -- he looked at me and listened and explained.

We had previously had an unsatisfactory meeting with a neurologist in Bremerton. We had heard wonderful comments about Dr Roberts so were delighted that we could get a consultation even if it took 6 weeks to wait. He took the time to carefully assess me and educate us about Parkinson´s Disease. His professional and gentle manner was reassuring to us who are trying to come to grips with a chronic, life long, debilitating diagnosis. We felt very welcomed.

September 2016
Dr Roberts and I have been doing this for now almost 5 yrs and I wouldn´t have anyone else that I would trust with my care as I do him . I came in from Group Health with such a horrible experience zero answers they just left me hanging except for the one Dr who went above what he was supposed to and sent me to Dr Roberts . He had heard he was very good at what he did and people came from all over to see him and although it may take time to get in to see him it would be the best thing for me , and so it was and I can´t thank that Dr enough for doing that at least you know there are still some good people left when the rest just don´t give a crap and group health neurology just didn´t care !!so yes Dr Roberts has worked hard to help make things right in my messed up world and while it´s not perfect it´s 100% better than it was coming in and it´s never going to be normal but I´m okay with that because we make it work the best we can . Thank you to Dr Roberts I have some life back because I had none I went from a wheel chair 24/7 to now only when I´m out ! now how´s that for work In 4 yrs time ? pretty good !

September 2016

March 2016
Dr Roberts and I have been working together now going on 2 years and I trust him completely, while we may not always agree we do compromise and that speaks volumes when your a paitent . While we are still working on the problems at hand he does what´s best for me as a paitent however also as a person , so when my body cannot tolerate going up on medications needed , this is where the compromise comes in as he will split the dose to make it tolerable . I have had Dr´s that don´t care it´s here take it so sorry it makes you sick however you have to take this dose , and Dr Roberts is not that way and if I´m having a bad day with everything and frustrated we are not processing he listens . And sometimes I bombard him with emails when I´m frustrated with test results and I feel I´m not getting any where after 4 years and only two years with him with treatment , he´s always so kind to respond with the best answer he has even if it´s not what I want to hear . Trust me Dr Roberts is a great Dr a great human being as well :) keep him !!

March 2016

I am continually praising Dr Roberts. I trust him. I´ve found that trait to be rare when dealing with my unique medical conditions. He is an amazing asset to the VM team!

January 2016
When I left the doctor´s office, I understood neither the prognosis nor the diagnosis. Of course, that could be because of my missing it somewhere along the way.
