I’ve only been seen by Roberts once. I went in and was treated fairly badly. I wasn’t give a gown but told to pull down my pants. I wasn’t touch and the PA never got out of her chair. I wasgiven a prescription that didn’t work and when I called to have the issue actually taken care of - they wanted to bill my insurance again. It was horrible and made me feel very uncared for.

She completely disregarded every issue I told her I felt wasn't normal. She disregarded it in a manner that didn't even offer help. All she did was recommend me get the normal tests that you'd take every 3 years. Most definitelygoing to be doing better research before I go see another doctor for the first time.

Very dismissive of symptoms and wrongfully informed even after multiple visits which cost me a year without treatment before being diagnosed by another doctor after much permanent damage to my joints was already done.

From reception to the patient room, Dr Leigh Roberts and her staff are always thoroughly wonderful, personal, and professional. Dr Roberts gives all the attention you'd hope for to your concerns and symptoms. There have been a few times whenI've almost thought she was abrasive, while firing question after question but once she makes her way to the information she's looking for, she'll tell you how it is with your best interest in mind. I feel lucky to have found Hejira Health and I hope you will too.

When I make an appointment to see a new doctor I expect to see a new doctor and NOT a nurse practitioner. In all my years of seeing doctors this has never happened to me. I've been seen by interns whichis acceptable but never a nurse unless it's been to have blood work done.

My experiences with Dr. Roberts have all been negative. I very rarely go to doctor's appointments and usually brush off mild symptoms or issues, so I am not a high-maintenance patient. When I went in to Dr. Roberts for a checkup,I casually asked her about a couple of things that were bothering me, including some discomfort in my hands. She treated me as though I was a hypochondriac or just a complete idiot. She cut me off when I was speaking and said something along the lines of "Yeah, that doesn't exist. It's all in your head." About discomfort in my hands... Really? Also, every year when I go in to get my birth control prescription renewed, she tries to coax me into switching to a new pill for no good reason. I have to tell her no over and over again each time. Why is that necessary? This medication is working for me and I have no negative side effects. It gets to a point where it's actually uncomfortable to deal with because after I tell her I'm happy with my current pill, she continues to press the issue. I have a feeling that Dr. Roberts could put someone in harm's way by being so blatantly dismissive of their concerns. She didn't even pretend to look into the symptoms I mentioned to her. She basically just told me I was making it up and waved me along. I will not be back to Dr. Roberts and I VERY strongly discourage anyone going to her for real, compassionate medical care.

I have been a patient of Dr. Roberts for several years, and my husband is her patient as well. We find her to be friendly and competent and willing to listen and provide her opinion, along with other options that maybe available for treatment. Her professionalism combined with a good sense of humor make office visits pleasant and productive. I would highly recommend her. I also really like being able to arrange my own appointment online via Zocdoc - very efficient!
