February 09, 2014

Very grateful to have Dr Rose.

February 03, 2014

I feel very lucky to have Dr. Rose treating me!

February 02, 2014

I quite like Dr. Rose. I feel comfortable with him

January 08, 2014

Dr. Rose is always helpful and does not rush through my appointment. Because of this, I was ok with him not being "on time". I knew he was helping the other patients.

November 18, 2013

He seemed a little less engaged than in previous visits. It appeared to ruffle his feathers just a bit when I questioned the cost and effectiveness of the DMDs proffered by big pharma. I think I touched a nerve there. I am close to having no medical coverage and do not relish the thought of paying exhorbitant retail prices in the US.

November 18, 2013

he is the BEST!

November 11, 2013

The reason I gave such a low rating on question #8 is he spent 10 minutes interacting with me personally.

November 04, 2013

Dr. Rose listens and provides research and information to help answer my questions and to include me in decisions about treatment. He is thoughtful and patient in taking the time to give me all the information I need to feel comfortable with my treatment decision.

October 28, 2013

Dr. Rose is the best and I am blessed to have him as my Neurologist

October 26, 2013

He is always very efficient.

October 24, 2013

Dr.Rose takes time with me every time I see him (every 6 months) to thoroughly test my reflexes, balance,eyes, etc.

October 17, 2013

always very kind and caring

October 03, 2013

Dr. Rose was very friendly and provided excellent care. He was attentive to my needs and concerns. He was teaching a third year medical student. Both he and the medcial student were excellent.

August 21, 2013

I'm sticking with Dr Rose until he retires :)

August 05, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Rose to others

July 28, 2013

Dr. Rose and his 2 students were friendly and helpful.The only thing I felt that did not get addressed was my concern that my legs feel like they are getting weaker. I had hoped to discuss possible physical therapy but forgot to bring it up.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Rose listens to my concerns and that is very important to me. He always includes me in decisions about my treatment and I have complete confidence in the care he provides me.

July 08, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Rose to several people, and hold him in high regards. He always goes the extra mile, even when you can tell he's having a not so great day.

June 25, 2013

Everything seems to flow well with the group, even though at times they have their hands full with lots of patients, the nurses remain friendly and spend the time needed for each patient. I feel they put people at ease, as much as possible.

June 20, 2013

Dr. Rose is amazing!! I am so thankful to have someone treating my MS like him. He stays on top of all of the new meds and knows his patients well enough to know if they are a good fit for a treatment. He has a wealth of knowledge about MS!! I can't say enough good things about him.

May 07, 2013

I feel I'm receiving the highest possiible standard of care and appreciate the doctors consideration of my concerns.

May 05, 2013

Dr. Rose was very caring, thorough, and thoughtful during my visit. He took the time to explain things and answer any questions I had. He did not seem at all to be rushing me through. I am very pleased that Dr. Rose made this such a comfortable and positive visit.

April 30, 2013

Dr.Rose is great and I feel very confident in him.

April 16, 2013

My experience was very good, as usual.

April 12, 2013

The only comment I have about Dr. Rose is that knowing that MS is extremely individual as to the degree of the worsening. I feel it is worsening at a faster rate than I think it should. I would just like some feedback as to the worsening of the physical disability. A doctor's perspective can illuminate just how quickly my MS is progressing

April 02, 2013

Liked the way Dr. Rose replied "that would be unusual" or "that's unlikely" when asked about whether a particular symptom is associated with MS, instead of saying "no, that's not because of MS". This disease and the info on it is constantly changing.

April 01, 2013

Dr. Rose is the very best and I would fly anywhere to see him.

March 18, 2013

Dr. Rose is very caring toward me.

February 25, 2013

Very good

February 25, 2013

Dr Rose is Awesome!

February 18, 2013

I love Dr. Rose. He never lets you walk away wondering about anything. He also never talks down to me, he treats me as though I am actually an intelligent person.

February 11, 2013

Dr. Rose is always patient and thoughtful in his responses.

January 03, 2013

Doctor John Rose...He accepted me as a new patient when he wasn't openly even accepting more patients in the beginning of my trying to figure out what was wrong with me. He's been open, easily accessible, kind, and down to earth since the very first appointment. Having to go through mind and life changing health problems, I'm just glad I have him to be my guide along the way.

December 20, 2012

There was a mistake in my MRI report that I noticed only afterwards! It is uncomfortable that this didn't come up during the appointment.

December 07, 2012

My previous care was at USC medical center an amazing clinic! I was with them many years. It felt wonderful to feel as though I would get the same wonderful and thorough care here.

December 03, 2012

Dr. Rose is the best in his treatment of me as a patient.

November 16, 2012

The Saturday experience was very different from the Thursday and Friday experience at the same infusion lab, I would recommend not going on a Saturday for infusion, horrible experience. I still have the bruises from the failed injections, 3 weeks later.

November 01, 2012

Dr. Rose has been so wonderful, he is truly concerned about my illness and I know that I am receiving the best treatment possible! He is always so positive and he puts my mind at ease.

October 18, 2012

Dr. Rose is a wonderful Doctor. I have the utmost respect and confidence in him. He was prompt in treating me for a problem I am encountering. He is a caring doctor that relates to me on a personal level.

October 09, 2012

Dr. Rose and Julia Klein have both been very easy to talk to and are willing to answer questions about new medications and other symptoms or questions I may have.

August 20, 2012

Utah is so fortunate to have a facility staffed with such wonderful, caring professionals.

August 15, 2012

Dr. Rose has a excellent ability to help me feel comfortable and confident during the vist. That says a lot considering I hate seeing or doing any medical treatment.

August 02, 2012

Dr. Rose listens and then addresses my concerns specifically.

July 31, 2012

I brought up new concerns, I felt that they listened and understood the problem. They were able to tell me what the problem was and what may have caused it.

July 30, 2012

John Rose is the best. Every MS patient should want to see John Rose

July 06, 2012

Seeing Dr. Rose is always a good experience.

June 18, 2012

Dr. Rose is very patient and answers any questions I have. He shows concern for my well being.

June 07, 2012

I have been seeing Dr. Rose for some time. He is great.

May 12, 2012

Thank you, I feel like Dr. Rose really understands my symptoms.

May 09, 2012

Great job! I feel very blessed to have such great care providers as Julia Klein and Dr. Rose! I really can't imagine how they could be any better...unless they did house calls, that is!

May 09, 2012

I already have recommended Dr. Rose to others that seem to be having neurological problems. I just wish he could make a once a year trip to Idaho to see patients. We have to do an all day trip to be seen. Drive from Pocatello to SLC, be seen, eat, & drive all the way back. If he has several patients in Idaho, perhaps he could spend a day or two & get all the appointments taken care of. Just an idea :-)

May 02, 2012

All great. I would highly recommend to anyone.

April 09, 2012

Dr. Rose is a gem and I would recommend him to all of my friends.

April 04, 2012

Dr. Rose compitent and caring physician! I really appreciate my visit with him!

April 02, 2012

Dr. Rose is the best. I was hoping that he would have done more of my exam. The other neurologist was good but he was not Dr. Rose.

March 21, 2012

Dr Rose is the best!

March 07, 2012

Dr. Rose is absolutely the best neurologist one could ever wish for. He is so thorough, knows me well, is always so encouraging. His fellow, Giles, is also wonderful.

February 13, 2012

Dr. Rose is always so patient, kind, and caring.

February 06, 2012

Dr. Rose is amazing!

January 26, 2012

I saw my normal doctor and the new doctor who is completing clinical hours and these ratings apply to both.

January 19, 2012

I have the highest respect for Dr. Rose. For nearly 15 years, he has given me the highest quality of care. He and his staff are to be highly commended.
