01/03/14 5 5 5 5 Oh, Dr. Roseman, what would I do without you? The sincerity, the caring, the humor. No issue is too small for him and he's so wonderful with my daughter. We absolutely adore him!  Respond

Dr. Roseman has been simply the greatest... There needs to be more doctors like him - the man - the doctor - the person - he is simply incredible... I just wish he could stay as my son's physician until my son's time is up... You are so loved for your compassion, understanding & caring Dr R... Thank you so much for being there for us...

25/04/12 5 2 5 5 Dr Roseman is the greatest!He tells it like it is. If your child is spoiled he will tell you that,he won't "label" the child with ADHD just because you "think" your child has that. He's very kind, knows his stuff, and is firm ( yet gentle )when he needs to be. I have seen other parents walk out in a huff ( my own brother's ex included) because Dr Roseman DOES tell it like it is. Seems that SOME parents DO want their child to be "labelled",as did my brother's ex ( she insisted that my nephew had ADHD or some other "illness")when it has nothing to do with "illness" but rather because mom and dad "give in" too easily and now the child is out of control. If your child refuses to eat anything but "name brand" and you give in, of course they will act out if you don't prepare the food they want. It's called a temper tantrum, not ADHD. And THAT is why I love Dr Roseman! He will run many tests if he is unsure of what it causing a problem too.  Respond

15/12/11 4 5 5 5 Dr. Roseman is a brilliant man. He has a knowledge base that I think is beyond most of our understanding. He makes our whole family laugh the whole time we are there, and yet we always leave knowing the answers to our questions and with practical advice for the problems we are facing. My kids are very shy and he has a way of proceeding with their exams while speaking to us that puts them at ease. He is highly intelligent and very friendly. I will travel, now that we have moved, to continue taking our kids to him. I wish he practiced family medicine so I could see him too! I trust him completely, and that isn't something I can say for any other doctor I have seen.  Respond

20/09/11 4 4 5 5 Dr. Roseman has been our pediatrician since for all 3 of our daughters. He has been amazing, informative, caring, and a treasure to our family. He listens to our concerns, gut instincts, and fears. He takes the time to explain and be sure we understand everything that is going on and may happen when we leave the office. I have referred many clients to his clinic and can't think of anyone I would trust more.  Respond

13/07/11 4 3 5 5 I think Dr. Roseman is an excellent doctor. My daughter is 21 months now and we have been with him from the beginning. I had to laugh a bit about the negative "rudeness" comments. I do agree that Dr. Roseman is a little harsh sometimes but - people - he is British, they do have a "different" sense of humor, like Simon Cowel for example. He called our baby "short and fat" but being from Europe myself I knew he did not say it to offend me or my baby. He is very quick and correct with his diagnosis and on 3 or 4 occasions I was able to come in the next day in the morning if I needed an emergency appointment. He does have a very strong opinion on how to raise well-mannered children and I appreciate his tips. It is up to me in the end if I agree with him or not. Somebody said that he did not take time to answer questions: My tip is to write a list and tell him you have one. He always took the time to answer my questions. We love Dr. Roseman he is just VERY Brithish...  Respond

03/07/11 3 1 1 1 Dr.Roseman was very rough with my daughter's abdominal examination (she is 3) and she started to cry. He didn't try to engage with her and never explained what he was doing. When she refused to let him examine her further, despite my cajoling he was very annoyed and asked me if I often have to negotiate with her. Yes, she is 3. He then said, I think her problems come from parenting. She is odd - a funny duck he said. If she was in a prison, she would be allowed to act like this - that society wouldn't tolerate it. Then my daughter interrupted "excuse me mommy, he is a stranger and a boy he is not supposed to touch my body" . My heart broke but instead explaining his role as doctor and the reason for the exam, he snapped at her, saying if she interrupted again she would stand with her nose in the corner. Then he told me to make a longer appointment for next time so he could properly examine her and that if she didn't comply that time "we would hold her down". We won't be back.  Respond

07/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Roseman is an absolutely amazing Pediatrician. He's extremely knowledgeable, patient and always willing to listen to our questions and concerns. Most importantly, he's fantastic with our kids. My oldest actually looks forward to his visits and enjoys Dr. Roseman's quirky sense of humour. We dealt with several problems with my oldest in particular, ranging from Asthma, ADHD, Torticollis, a broken wrist, etc and Dr. Roseman was always willing to take the time to explain everything to use and explore options. He's a fantastic advocate for his patients and if you're child ever gets seriously ill, he's the guy you want looking after them! I know some people don't understand his brand of humour, but I find him charming. He puts me, and most importantly, my kids, at ease. I've worked with a lot of Health Care Professionals over the years and anyone who finds out we have Dr. Roseman comments on how very luck our kids are to have his as their Pediatrician.  Respond

I highly recommend this Doctor.  Respond

13/04/10 4 3 5 5 Dr. Roseman has been caring for my 3 children since we moved to Edmonton 5 years ago. He always spends a great deal of time with us, which is why I never mind waiting past my appointment time, as I know he is giving other families excellent care. I really appreciate his extra time taken to research my child's condition, and do do thorough head to toe annual check-ups. I enjoy his sarcasm and British wit, although some may not understand his jokes. He is not a coddling doctor, and can be very blunt, but his passion for children's medicine is evident. He is a gem in the medical profession, and I am extremely greatful that our family was referred to him.  Respond

09/06/09 5 5 5 5 We love Dr. Roseman! He became my daughter's doctor almost 4 years ago, assigned to su from the hospital, and when our son was born last month, we asked for Dr. Roseman to be his doctor as well. We love Dr. R's quirky sense of humor, and we always feel he is knowledgable and interested in hearing our concerns. He has been straightforward and caring, in our experience!  Respond

04/06/09 1 1 2 4 I called to book my child's one year appointment and was told I would not be able to get in for nearly 2 months. When I got to the office it was an hour wait and I could not stay. I called and made another appointment for the follwing week. I returned the following week only to be told my child could not have his checkup and that I could only speak to the doctor concerning my eating concerns about my child. I expressed concern stating the main reason I was there was for his one year checkup and had waited months. The nurse apologized but said: "I don't know what the girl on the phone told you but we squeezed you in between 2 other appointments, as a courtesy to you". I was never told this on the phone. Dr. Roseman came and rushed through my appointment. Appointments are always so quick and rushed that I don't have a chance to say/ask what I wanted. He did not do the one year checkup and said make an appointment in 3 months and we'll do it then. He doesn't make proper time for patients.  Respond

18/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Roseman became my sons pediatrician the day he was born. Without him i don't know where my sons medical issues would be today. HE diagnosed two serious problems in which my son has already had to surgeries. At 7 months old i can say that without him we would all be a wreck. He is a humorous doctor who also has helped us, fought for us and taught us so much. Even if it was just drawing out a sketch on the table to help us understand things better. He is a fantastic pediatric doctor and i would recommend him to everyone.  Respond

03/11/08 2 4 5 5 I have 2 children that have Dr. Roseman as their pediatrition and we all absolutely love him. He is very down to earth and personable. I think he really appreciates a parent who takes time to understand and ask questions about their childrens health. He has sent us for genetic testing for a pre-existing family condition and has taken extra time to know our family history when he really only sees us 1-3x a yr. He doesn't always follow the baby books cuz he says, "your baby didn't write the book". I love that approach, go with a mothers instinct. Excellant doctor, but has no patience for wasting his time.  Respond

20/07/08 5 5 5 5 I have had my daughter seeing Dr.Roseman since she was born. There have been numberous occaisions over the last 7 years where other medi center doctors have severly mis-diagnosed my daughter and it is only because Dr.Roseman cares enough to explore every possible option before proceeding with treatment that I still go to him. My daughter loves him, I find him to be an amazing prectitioner. I would, and do to every one i know with small children, recommend that you fget your children in with this man. He truly is one of a kind and you couldn't ask for someone better to care for your little one  Respond

15/07/08 5 5 5 5 Being my 1st child was a prem, I feel my child was blessed to have Dr. Roseman. He was always aware of my fears but always managed to calm me about the well being of my son. He has a wonderful sense of humor.. For someone to say he was rude just don't get the inside jokes. I have never had to wait to see him and my appointments are always on time. He was absolutley professional in the NICU. He may seem demanding to the nurses but I found that was because a lot of the nurses fancied themselves as DOCTORS(when they are not). I had NO problem with Dr. Roseman being so specific as to the treatment(s) of my baby. In all honesty there is not another Doctor that I would trust my childs health to.Thanx Doc.  Respond

Sometimes tough to get an appointment on short notice but when my child is really sick, they manage to fit me in. Highly recommended.  Respond

23/06/07 2 1 4 Dr Roseman is extremely rude to other health care professionals. He is very arrogant. As a mother to a baby that was in the NICU, I witnessed him be extremely rude to the wonderful nurses there. I chose to see a different pediatricain once we went home, as his behavioer was very offensive!  Respond

17/06/07 5 5 5 Finally.. a doctor with COMMON SENSE! If you can't handle hearing it how it is then don't see him. I LOVE his common sense approach to parenting. He knows so much stuff.. I've never had a question that he couldn't answer.. and when my daughter had a very scary episode he left no stone unturned in trying to find the cause and so reassuring and helpful. Thankfully my daughter is totally fine.. He is a gem with all three of my girls... just an all around amazing and HAPPY doctor.  Respond

16/04/07 2 5 4 I'm indebted to Dr. Roseman for the life of my son. Without his intervention, my son likely would not have made it through a severe asthma attack when he was ten months old.

07/04/07 3 3 3 As first time parents to twins, he was the paediatrician on call after my birth. As I was still recovering after a c-section, I really didn't pay too much attention to him. Our first office appointment was not pleasing. He told us to decide then and there whether to have our sons circumsized, without giving us any information on the subject. Next few appointments we waited for what seemed like hours. Our last visit was an absolute disaster. One of the kids had a rash on his cheeks that Dr. Roseman called revolting while the other baby had rolls under his chin that we could never seem to keep clean. He then referred to that baby as a "little sh*t". Nothing new parents ever would like to hear from a doctor. Then he wanted to charge us a fee to tell us the blood types for the kids. I don't know, open the file and look... 3 and a half years have passed and I have not once regretted taking my kids to our family doctor. Good riddance!!!  Respond

06/04/07 5 5 5 It is rare to encounter a physician so genuinely caring. Couple this with vast knowledge and you have the makings of an outstanding doctor. David Roseman is respectful of his patients and offers expertise to children with all levels of development. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to him for my child(ren)'s care. Even in the most devestating medical circumstances, we found comfort and compassion. A doctor who went out of his way to offer assistance to all family members. It is rare to encounter a physician who will listen with attentiveness and place great reliance in a parent's perspective. This is one of the most wonderful doctors I have ever been blessed to know. I cannot say enough... our humble thanks.  Respond

16/03/07 3 5 5 Dr. Roseman has been our childrens doctor for 10 years. In that time our daughters have had serious illnesses. I find him to be direct forthright and always asking the question what is it you think I have not done? His butt never leaves the chair when he is talking to you which makes you think that what you have to say is important, heard and understood. I think he is by far one of the most excellent doctors practicing in todays medicine.  Respond

15/03/07 3 4 4 We have used Dr Roseman for the last 15 years. We have now moved on as it is too hard to get an appointment. Dr Roseman has been very helpful in most instances, but when he was not able to determine what was ailing our son, and we did through alternative medicine, he was no open to hearing about it at all.  Respond
RID: 200903
15/03/07 3 4 4 Overall, Dr. Roseman is a good doctor. However, he does not support single parenting, homeschooling or attachment parenting, looking to blame everything wrong with a child on those 3 things. He has a strange habit of hitting us over our heads with the childrens files to get a point across which I find offensive. We do however continue seeing him because his overall care of the children is excellent.  Respond

12/03/07 1 3 3 I have had two different experiences with Dr. Roseman over the past 9 years of haveing him a a doctor. With girls and very well behaved childern he is great and understanding, with childern who are busier and not robotic his mannerism changes considerable. He is quick to judgement and does not HEAR the family once his decision is made. Right or wrong of which he has been in a few instances he is not quick to admit. I believe he is a good doctor with a few social downfalls that effect allot of doctors. I will say I do not use him anymore.  Respond
