Ratings for Dr. Thomas M. Roesch
Dr. Roesch is a fantastic doctor! He delivered my first child via c-section with no problems. He is very calm, patient, and caring. He put me at ease and answered all of my many questions. His office staff was equally efficient and kind. I had absolutely zero problems throughout my pregnancy and follow-up. Unfortunately, I did receive a letter in late 2017 that Dr. Roesch was retiring from the practice. I have not found a replacement Ob-gyn.
Hello everyone out there searching for a doctor, I would like to share my experience with the most awesome, knowledgeable, kind and caring doctor that I had the luck to meet in my life! Dr Roesch is all that and much more. I had my first pregnancy monitored at his office and it was like my own family was taking care of me. I read the comments about office staff but I want to tell you they are just awesome. I started with nice insurance that I lost during pregnancy. I can't tell you how the insurance lady went above and beyond to help me set my insurance plan. She might not talk too many silly talks but she is so supportive, so experienced, so helpful. I never met this people before I got pregnant and I never expected so much support from a doctors office staff. They ALWAYS worked around my needs, scheduled visits, everything. I am medical professional myself, extremely demanding about my healthcare provider, I can not imagine better care than this office! Thank you Dr Roesch and office staff for providing true medical care for your patients! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Let me start by saying Dr Roesch is a VERY PLEASANT man, he was very calm and patient with a new mom, such and myself. He took the time to explain any questions I have and was very patient with he fact that I sometimes had my 1 yr. old in the office.(smile) His staff however, needs a refresher course in "bed side" manner (seeing that patients are how they make a living). The receptionist came across as nice nasty and very condescending. She made it very clear that she was annoyed w/ me if I had to change my appt or couldn't keep my appt due to morning sickness. During my next to last visit the nurse, who always appeared to be uncomfortable and nervous, failed to change the tissue paper on the pillow & bed (it was clear someone else had been there), when my husband and I complained her response was "we have limited supplies and we don't change them every visit" WHAT?!! I concluded my visits and vowed that I would express my unsavory experience as soon as I had my baby. Sorry Dr. Roesch
I approached Dr. Roasch about an issue that I had with his Office Manager and was told by Dr. Roasch that "..if I'm uncomfortable with my staff then you should find another doctor because I'm not going to retrain my staff." In my view, when a doctor values their staff more than their patients then the focus must not be on patient care.
Dr. Roesch has been my OB/GYN for 14 years and I will not see another OB/GYN unless God forbid he passes away. I haven't always gotten along with the aforementioned staff members all of the time, but we are like friends that have a falling out every blue moon, and we get over it. Dr. Roesch and staff have been there for all of my illnesses whether GYN-related or not, both of my pregnancies, and I trust them with my impending hysterectomy. He is my mother's dr., and at 34, I have literally grown up with him as my dr. as well...when the time comes, I will trust him to be my childrens' OB/GYN as well.
Dr. Roesch is a wonderful doctor. He is very calming and reassuring during scary situations, as I discovered during one of my deliveries. He takes his time with each patient and always makes sure to answer all of my questions. I am very comfortable with hime. I like his nurse and his front desk person. However, his insurance person/practice manager is awful! She is rude (and I'm a northerner so can't blame it on that) and acts like she is a medical professional which I don't believe she is. She tries to tell me what I should do medically and bashes the very careful medical decisions that I have made having to do with my birth. I've asked her the same insurance question at least 3 times and she's given me a different answer each time. I don't trust that she really is telling me the right things. I also don't appreciate when she does the nurses job, b/c she is not at all reassuring. I have considered switching doctors because I just can't stand having to deal with her.
Dr. Roesch is such a wonderful and kind doctor. I am so incredibly thankful for him. He saw me through the birth of my twins. His staff becomes like your family. I love it because he is the only doctor you see. I want to mention too- the lady who is the nurse/office manager others have referring to has always been wonderful to me. She is direct and from the North so I understand that her voice may sound abrassive... but let me assure you- she is incredible too. She offered me wisdom and comfort during a very scary time. His entire staff is very knowledgable and kind. I actually look forward to my visits because I get to see everyone. I was recommended by a friend and have recommended him to all the females in my life!
