    Dr Roger¿s has taken excellent care of my blood issues and knows where to test for problems that do not always show up on standard blood tests. He is caring and willing to help other care providers by attending my oral surgeries to insure the procedures went as well as possible. Even though they were not performed in the facility where he sees patients. Intelligent and personable, he is a great physician.
