Specialties

Dr. Richard A Roberts has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Neurological Surgery

    A neurological surgeon is a physician who surgically treats disorders of the nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
    In addition to treating trauma of the head and spine, these doctors also treat disorders like epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.

LOVE Dr. Roberts

Five years ago my husband and I had our first baby. To everyone's surprise (even my obgyn) our baby was born with a hole on the back of his head and part of his brain was protruding out the hole. We were told that if he lived he would likely be a vegetable. Dr. Roberts saved my son's life. Our beautiful son just turned five and is completely normal. You can't even see his scar, Dr. Roberts did such an amazing job that it is covered by his hair. Our follow up appointments have also been great. He is so caring and compassionate. It might be several weeks before you can get an appointment, but that's because this doctor is busy saving little lives everyday. To this day I pray for God to continue to bless this amazing doctor so that he may continue to bless families the way he has blessed ours. I will always be grateful to this wonderful doctor.

Most Caring Doctor Ever!

I don't believe I've ever met a more caring doctor. Dr. Roberts patiently explained all details of our son's condition, left time for me to be choked up about it, and supported us with his kindness and expertise as we decided what steps were best to take next.
