07/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Roy is by far the best doctor I have ever had!!! I have going to Dr. Roy ever since 2007. I've not yet had to have surgery, but I know that when, and if I do, he will tell me and NOT before it is needed. He cares and listens to whatever might be of a concern to me. I have never felt that he was rushed or was too busy to listen to my comments. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone needing spinal care.

07/04/12 5 5 5 5 I am a retired OR Registered Nurse. I've been medically retired due to RA. Dr. Roy operated on me in 2011 preforming a ACSF with bone graft. The following is my opinion from my personal experience as his patient... Dr. Roy is the real deal. A Doctor/Surgeon of the highest degree. He's very smart, very skilled and very compassionate. I've worked with all kinds of Surgeons in my years as a OR Nurse. I wish I could have worked with Dr. Roy. I trust him and his judgement. I feel he has my (the patients) best interest at heart and its not the $$$$. He will not give you the impression that he walks on water or is divine in any way. I have followed him to his new practice in Eden, NC. and will continue with him as long as I can physically get to his office.

29/02/12 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr Roy since 2002. I work in the medical field and their is no one that compares to him. He is personable,compassion,just a great human being. And Julia his secretary is also fabulous. Love Love Love him. Would not let anyone but him touch my back. He has called me @ 9:30 pm on a weekday to check on me. As well as calling me on a Saturday morning. He is known for being the first one at the ER. If he is late due to an emergency he apologizes. He remembers things about you and your family. He is just so helpful and would do anything he can for you. He will not just cut on you unless their is no other way. I have recommend to numerous of my friends & others and they all love him. I have never in the 13 years of being in the medical field ever heard a bad thing about him. That's why I now drive a hour to see him. He is that great!!!  Respond

22/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Roy performed back surgery on me 13 yrs. ago following an A/A. He continues to see me on a regular basis and is just as compassionate now as then. He is very competent therefore I have referred several friends, along with a number of my clients, to him. I am an RN and tend to ask a number of questions and he is always knowledgeable and willing to answer all my questions. I find him to be very professional and kind both with his patients and his personnel. Although I still have some back pain, I know that I could have been paralyzed so I'm very grateful to be walking. I'm able to work because he has managed my pain.
