Five Stars

Dr.Roark was easy to talk with, and waited patiently for me to finish what I was saying. He gave me plenty of time and I did not feel rushed at all. He was well aware of my problems so he is very knowledged in even rare diseases. I have found that to be rare as well. I really liked Dr. Roark and highly recommend him!

Best Choice in Abilene

The absolute best. Traditional doctor, not in a rush to get you out of his office. Dependable good judgment with a real depth of experience. Really cares about doing what is best and not about making money.

Won't be seing him again!

Dr. Roark told my husband that his problem (that he has had since he came back from a poor country) was all in his head! What a quacky doctor. I honestly think that he just wants to get patients in and out of his office to get his money. He did not care at all about my husband's problem, which is still bothering him greatly, and acted sort of cocky.
