Dr. Roth was great -- in addition to being very nice and personable, he asked several clarifying questions about my issue (very painful knee), took x-rays, and gave a standard exam that was neither rushed nor arduous. My condition turned outto have a simple solution (at least thus far), and he has established a followup plan for monitoring the progress of that treatment. He also gave very clear explanations for both my condition and treatment. I would definitely recommend him to others needing an orthopedic consultation! Btw, even though he is an orthopedic surgeon and I was concerned beforehand that he might be eager to recommend knee replacement, he didn't mention the words "replacement" or "surgery" once in our conversation.

I have an ACL injury from playing soccer and came to the doctor with my MRI files. I thought the doctor had great bedside manner and was very thorough about answering my questions. However I thought the doctor was a littlequick about prescribing surgery as the only option. I'm going to get a second opinion.
