Ratings for Dr. Warren G. Roberts
I understand that an L5 S1 partial discectomy can have its consequences. However, I question both Dr. Roberts' ability and ethics. Both before and after the operation, his response to my question, "When will my back be healed and I can function normally again?" was always "You'll be as good as new in 30 days." After six months of pain, I was referred to a nerve specialist who gave me epidural steroid injections two months apart. This finally set me on a path to recovery, which took over 2 years.
Dr. Warren Roberts will tell you everything you want to hear but does not deliver. He performed a c3/4 and c 4/5 surgery on me over three years ago and I am still in severe horrific pain every day. I beg you not to waste your time with him. Do your research and avoid him at all costs!!!
I was referred to Dr. Roberts and personally feel I would not feel very good about referring anyone to be treated by him. The staff was very nice however I was referred out of his office more than 3 times to be seen by someone else for the same back problem. I also sent my CD of x-rays to another Doctor and they could not believe at 37 I was receiving surgery. The receptionist stated she called my Insurance to confirm coverage and I trusted that she did and ended up not being coverage. So make sure! Today my back feel the exact same as when I started 2 years ago and paying monthly on bills to 3 Doctors.
He was great at first, I broke my L1 and L5 disks and both were jammed into my sciatic nerve causing severe pain so he was whom I got when I went to the hospital and he did a good job on the surgery, afterwards my incision got infected and was on and off antibiotics for almost 3 months before I finally got over the infection well recently ive been working much harder to support my baby and wife as I'm the bread winner and that's caused me to be in a lot of pain at times as bad as before surgery, I've been wetting the bed do to incontinence that comes with the pain, I'm on Gabapentin, Vicodin and doing my PT and I can barely and I mean barely manage the pain using both meds and now after 3 months it looks like he's going to cut off my vics without saying a word at the worst fn possible time, if you are worried about silent treatment Big Ego Hot Shot Doctors go find someone else! Nice guy but shady and inconsistent treatment
I read prior opinions, but decided to give the Dr. the benefit and talk to him. I could not have been more pleased. Professional, patient, and kind with the alternatives and informational data I needed. We discussed my care, I feel total confidence and am glad to have made my choice to have Dr. Roberts treat me.
Dr. Roberts changed my life - I had been in debilitating pain for many years and other specialists had told me there was nothing they could do, but Dr. Roberts quickly identified my problem and operated on my neck. Where I had severe headaches numerous times a week that affected my ability to do my job, I've not had a single one since he operated on me a year ago. He is a very tender, caring person and I could not thank him enough for the difference he made in my life. I also know several other patients of Dr. Roberts who believe the same thing. He is a one of a kind doctor that makes you feel like you are his only patient at any given time and takes all the time necessary to answer your quesitons and educate you on the issues and all the options and risks. Bless this man!
I have a pontine tumor and was personally walked up to his office by my primary physician to make an appointment. Once I was there they took me back did B/P check etc. I had brought in the MRI that I done 2 weeks prior to the appt. I am sitting in his office waiting for him to come in and talk to me, his nurse walked in and said "There is Nothing He Can Do For you do you want a Refferal?" This is the kind of arrogance that makes me sick! Who does he think he is I pray to 1 GOD and trust me it is not mr. warren roberts!!!! this man does not deserve to have an MD before his name!!! He is cruel and heartless, I got to leave there wondering Is this tumor inoperable am I dying in 3 weeks? Is anyone going to help me!!!!What a disrespect to Dr. Karin Spears who walked me to his office and told me how great warren roberts is. Like I said warren roberts is a heartless arrogant and cruel man. DO NOT EVER SEE THIS JERK!!!
My daughter has been diagnosed with a pons tumor on in the brain stem. She was referred to Dr. Roberts. The nurse came in and took her vitals, left to get the doctor and came back in a short time and said that the doctor did not think she is the type of patient that he sees and wanted to refer her to another neurologist. (Does this mean the tumor is not operable or is she okay.) He did not even come into the exam room to tell her what his opinion of the MRI and CT scan. This was absolutely the most unprofessional and uncaring medical environment I have ever encountered.
