Where I see patients

Legacy Medical Group-Salmon Creek Family Medicine

About Me:

I chose a specialty in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine to care for patients from infancy through adolescence and into adulthood. My career has allowed me to care for those from all walks of life and reinforces my philosophy that the most important attribute of a caregiver is the ability to listen to their patient. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family, hiking, gardening and being a "foodie" with my wife.

Education:
Residency: Tulane University
Medical School: University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
Year I Started Practice: 1999
Hospitals Served: Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

We had gone to the same dr. for 32 years & when he retired we concerned about a new dr. Our son goes to Dr. Roberts & offered to take us. It is so much like going to our other dr. & we couldn't be happier.

Dr Roberts inspected my ears regarding the wax that was interfering with my hearing. He recognized the sensitivities of the location of the wax relative to the ear drum, and he made decision to not go after it himself and instead refer me to ENT physician. I appreciated this, and this decision gave me even more confidence in Dr. Roberts and his ability to ensure my good health.

The bad related to the visit have to do with inability to get scheduled in the lab downstairs. It's now extremely frustrating to get a morning blood draw for those of us who have to fast. Also, narrow parking spaces remains your biggest problem. It hasn't changed in years, yet you've known about it forever. Please do something about the lab and parking

All visits with Dr. Roberts have been excellent. Dr. Roberts is a good listener and really tries to figure out what kind of medical problem your having. Dr. Roberts is very knowledgeable and patient and you never feel like your being rushed out of the exam room. Thank you Dr. Roberts for all you do to keep us all healthy!

This was my first visit to this office and Dr. Roberts. Dr. Roberts was great, reviewed my medical history, asked questions, listened, didn't present a rushed feeling. I will stay with Dr. Roberts until I don't, but I do not see that happening anytime soon at present. Really was professional, caring and informative. I hope to have a partner in health with Dr. Roberts.

they were running late and it took awhile before we were seen. however the medical assistant gave my Daughter a goody bag to keep her busy and kept us in formed and apologized for running late. that means that the doctor took his time with each patient and wasnt rushing just because he was a little behind. not the doctors fault he was behind it just meant he was giving extra care and attention to a patient that needed it. dr Roberts and his staff are amazing, kind, helpful and go the extra mile to provide top notch care

I live in Assisted Living and have been in lockdown and quarantine status for almost nine months. This doctor and his staff have worked with me diligently to keep me updated and informed. I have never had a bad experience with this Clinic or any of its doctors. I am [age removed], hard of hearing and they treat me and my questions with most respect. I have been unable to leave quarantine until this visit and it was very well handled for my safety and reassurance at all levels

This was my first appointment to establish myself as a patient. I do not feel I have had enough experience to share but I was happy with the efficiency of how the office was run, and the provider gave me ample time to discuss my concerns. He also was willing to write me a referral to a specialist which is why I made the appointment in the first place.

I called that morning to be seen for a chronic sore throat, and was given an appointment that day. I wasn't made to wait long in the waiting room or patient room. Dr. Roberts is a very good listener, appears to have reviewed my information before asking me questions/making recommendations, and most of all, allows me to join in the decision making about next steps.

Dr. Roberts is a great doctor. He listen to what I say. He's trying to figure out why I'm in so much pain. We have tried everything. Besides a PET scan, which he doesn't want to do.

Dr. Roberts is always so kind and pleasant to see during my annual physical. He takes so much time to listen and never makes me feel rushed to get the appointment done. I also really like that he takes a moment to actually think about the questions I ask and not just fire off a generic medical answer. He really makes me feel like he cares about my health and that of my whole family. We look forward to having him as our family doctor for years to come!

After I left the office I had to come back to ask about a refill of a medicine that was on my check out sheet. I told the receptionist what I needed to ask about and she took the paper from me and looked over all of my medical information as well as my prescriptions which I could not believe since she is not a nurse. She could've just asked one of the nurses to come out for a quick question. I did NOT like her reviewing what I am taking or my condition.

Dr. Roberts is always respectful and kind. He clearly cares about me as a person! He handled all my questions about C-19 with grace and reasonableness, even though I am confident he must be frustrated with every patient asking these questions. If he is, he never let me know.

receptionist was distracted on computer entry and a bit cold when it seemed like she could have greeted me more warmly and got me checked in. I was the only person in line. instead she told me to wait while she pecked away on her keyboard for two to three minutes. she seemed like a very linear personality who must complete one task before moving to the next task that doesn't necessarily engender a warm welcome.

Dr. James Roberts ordered labs to check my uric acid level, due to the top knuckle of my pinky finger on my left hand being painful and swollen, to rule out the possibility of gout. The test results came back the next day, with my uric acid level being extremely high, so Dr. Roberts put me on a course of Prednisone to help with the pain and swelling, and prescribed me Zyloprim to help regulate my uric acid level. A "bad" diagnosis, with a "good" treatment plan.
