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.
