Pain is a subjective experience. Provider showed no concern for my pain, indeed decreasing my dose.UofU Patient May 13, 2015
I can't thank enough Dr Rothberg for putting together my broken shoulder and for doing it with as much care as he did. He talked to me just before surgery, showing X-ray of the injury and told me that he will put it back together , that was best reassurance I could possibly getUofU Patient May 13, 2015

The PA was more attentive to my concerns more then the surgeon did.UofU Patient December 27, 2014
I healed quickly and really didn't ask questions about the hip replacement. I was more concerned about resuming my activities (mostly biking) and continuing the swimming and walking (which I started during my fifth week post-operative. Dr. Rothberg was very supportive of my preferred activities and explained activities that would not be the best for hip replacement (such as running).UofU Patient December 05, 2014
I love Dr. Rothberg!! I never want to break anything again, but if I did, I would want him as my doctor.UofU Patient December 05, 2014

I fractured my femur in a bicycling accident and the injury required a total hip replacement. Being an active person, I am eager to get back on my bike/swim/hike. Dr. Rothberg was great about cautioning me - and why I should give my leg time to heal - while assuring me that I would be able to resume my activities.UofU Patient December 05, 2014

Dr. Rothberg is amazing! He takes the time to answer my myriad of questions and puts up with my silliness!UofU Patient August 28, 2014
The visits move extremely fast. I think Dr. Rothberg is very knowledgeable and has the patient's interest in mind. There just needs to be a bit more specificity or clarity about things, such as written instructions or better information about next steps.UofU Patient August 03, 2014

I would like a pre-printed timeline of recovery goals/expectations in rehab.UofU Patient January 26, 2014
Dr. Rothberg is a very caring person. He always listens and spends as much time as needed to answer questions. I had a traumatic injury and at 65 years old was not sure of my recovery time, he took very good care of me.UofU Patient January 17, 2014
My surgeon, David Rothberg, has been outstanding in his communication and caring attitude.
