February 11, 2014

I am particularly appreciative of Dr. Rogers, Dr. Nance and Dr. Sana for assuring that all of my hemostasis needs were carefully attended to before and after surgery. I am confident their involvement has improved my recovery from major surgery and amazed that I can actually go through a procedure and not bleed, bruise and ooze forever.

I cant help but believe, his care center rates at the top of the scale, world wide!!

January 24, 2014

I thought that we would have had a different experience, our experience was pretty sad. Felt like we had put out the doctor to see us. Maybe it was because the problem wasn't bad enough to be seen there.

November 25, 2013

I don't feel like I am more informed now than I was before. Also, my concerns were largely ignored, about my blood pressure and pain returning.

April 17, 2013

I hated to know I had to take a medicine for the rest of my life, but Dr. Rogers helped me understand 4 reasons why I needed it and how it will prevent future problems in my health and life. He was very kind, understandable and patient with me until he knew I understood. He and his assistant were very kind and helpful. I am so glad I came to see them and now feel more confident about what is happening with my health and medicine.

March 25, 2013

Dr Rogers was excellent. He was especially good at providing clear and detailed information.

February 13, 2013

Very open and friendly in explanations, talked to us in terms/verbage we understood. Answered our questions thoroughly and offered suggestions. Never once acted rushed, and actually asked us if we were ok to wait a few more minutes to get some of the test results. (never have had that treatment at any other office!)
