Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Roland is one of the best I’ve seen! Amazing bedside manner.
I received the best possible treatment and care with Dr. Charles Roland. Dr. Roland thoroughly explained the results of the MRI and the options for my knee repair. When he examined my knee, he was always very communicative with his findings and answered all of my questions. I believe most other surgeons would have recommended a knee replacement. Dr. Roland did everything possible during surgery to give me the best chance for recovery without a knee replacement. Post-surgical follow-ups with Dr. Roland are also very thorough and he takes the time to answer all of my questions. Dr. Roland also communicates with my physical therapist to be sure that they are following his instructions for my recovery. I am now in physical therapy and progressing very well. I am thankful every day that I am walking without pain and without a knee replacement.
5 stars Patients service 5 stars in communication 5 starts in addressing the patient(s) concern. I have a knee problem and Dr. Roland requested x-rays, after 15 min or less he was back with results. He explained that I do not have any major injuries and will need to request an MRI. In the meantime he recommended to perform specific exercises to strengthen the quadricep muscles in order to lower to pressure on my knee. Dr. Roland is amazing in performing a very detailed examination of the injured body part(s) and in addressing the specific concern(s) a patient has. He also records all his observations on a voice recorded, in order to keep track of all the case details for each particular patient. Excellent doctor!!! Super detailed!!! I HIGHLY recomend Dr. Roland to my fiends and family!!! He is the BEST doctor you will find for Orthopedic surgery or Orthopedic injury consolation!!!

I was recommended to see Dr. Roland due to lower back pain. He was very friendly during the visit and I was impressed with the level of ease I felt during the examination. Thanks Dr. Roland! He asked a lot of good questions paid attention to details and kept things positive. Definitely made me feel he was concerned about my well being and not just trying to see a patient as quickly as possible. Gave some expert advice and a very detailed report for further follow up. Would definitely recommend him to others.

Thank you !
I was treated by Dr. Roland recently for chronic pain in the left side of my lower back. Dr. Roland diagnosed my problem immediately indicating I had a problem with my IT band. He put me on a home program of stretching which solved my problem in the next couple of weeks. The reason I am writing this review, is that I had been treated at another facility for the same issue and was given anti-inflammatory medication and muscle relaxants which did not solve the problem, but did give me stomach issues I was not instructed in proper stretching techniques. Dr. Roland truly cared about my pain and spent 40 minutes with me. I was so impressed I referred my 78 year old mother to him for chronic knee pain. He prevented her at that time from a total knee replacement. We are truly grateful for Dr. Roland.
Dr. Roland is one of those rare doctors who really goes the extra distance to make sure you have the correct diagnosis and treatment. I was a pretty serious athlete when I was younger and Dr. Roland was the one to see. He's treated top football players and world class cyclists. He saw me through a couple bad bike accidents and a herniated disk in my back. Now that I'm an older "weekend warrior" I've developed knee pain. When I recently made an appointment to see Dr. Roland he took the time to educate me on what was happening and then include me in the treatment decisions. He offered alternative treatments, leaving surgery as a last option, which I really appreciated. Over the years I've sent many people to Dr. Roland for orthopedic problems and surgeries, each person took the time to thank me for the referral and then continued to be his patient. I love to give good reviews for people who deserve it, Dr. Roland is at the top of my "best" list!
