Dr Roberts is the laziest doctor that I have ever had the terrible misfortune of meeting. I went to doctor Roberts for pain that started in my hip and went all the way down to the top of my knee. I had all the symptoms of sciatica caused by a herniated disc. This was too difficult for Dr Roberts to figure out. Dr Roberts sent me to physical therapy without a diagnosis. Therefore, the physical therapy that I received was useless without the therapist knowing what injury to treat. I finally got an MRI from Dr Roberts. I had a herniated lumbar disc. Dr Roberts recommended that I have an epidural steroid injection (ESI) for pain relief. Dr Roberts never told me that ESIs only provide temporary pain relief with an associated significant risk of permanent disability if the spinal cord is punctured during the procedure. Dr Roberts never told me that the drugs used for ESIs are not approved by the FDA for epidural administration and have never been proven to be safe or effective for this type of administration. The drugs that are used for ESIs (Kenalog for example) are contraindicated for this purpose by the manufacturers themselves. It says this right on the manufacturer supplied package inserts. Apparently Dr Roberts is not even aware of this. Dr Roberts never bothered to take the time to explain the logic behind ESIs. ESIs only give temporary pain relief while exposing patients to significant risk of permanent disability. In other words, ESIs are extremely dangerous while at the same time useless for any kind of long term pain relief. After doing extensive research on my own about pain relief for herniated discs, I would consider Dr Roberts to be grossly incompetent and careless in his work. I would not recommend Dr Roberts to anyone. Not for any procedure or diagnosis of any kind and without any exceptions of any kind.

I am 67 and injured my knee. I needed out patient surgery at St. Luke's Patient's Medical Center near the office of Dr. Roberts off 225 in Pasadena, TX. Everything from the first office visit through the surgery and the post op visit to scheduling my physical therapy, was excellent. Thanks so much, Dr. Roberts, for the excellent quality care and concern.

I have to say one of the best experiences with a doctor. He was very consistent and answered any question I had. If I didn't understand he made sure that I under before I left the office. He explain what would happen during surgery which helped ease some of the concern. I could not have asked for a better doctor to perform my first surgery. Simply amazing.

My wife and I both attended the first two visits and both of us love him. He diagnosed my problem correctly and I am no back to mowing the lawn, working in the yard, working in the garage. He is outstanding at explaining everything you need to know. Would recommend him to everybody I know.

Doctor Roberts LITERALLY saved my life. When I got a staph infection in my knee, it was misdiagnosed by my (at the time) primary care physician. By the time I came upon Dr. Roberts, it is estimated that I had, maybe, two hours to live. He quickly realized what the problem was and, I am told (I was unconcious at the time) set about to save me. Dr. Roberts saved my leg and, more importantly, saved my life. I will forever be grateful. Five months later now, my scars are healed and I am able to do pretty much anything I was able to do before my illness. Your health could not possibly be in better hands than with Dr. Roberts.
