Patient Reviews

November 22, 2019
Dr. Roca is a caring and kind doctor. What makes him an excellent provider is his ability to listen to the patient. He ask questions and listens. He demonstrates that he cares by his kind approach. At every visit I had with Dr. Roca no matter how far in between he always remembered me and could recall our last visit. It was like I just had a recent visit. I was always impressed by this. Dr. Roca always presented in a pleasant mood, smiled and always shares a laugh. The visit is personable and it just makes you feel like he cares and has your best interest. He is empathetic and treats you with humility. I trust Dr. Roca's professional judgment and health care service. During my health care with Dr. Roca when all other urgent care Dr. provided incorrect diagnoses, it was Dr. Roca who listened and was able to most accurately diagnosed. Again this makes you feel like he has patients best interest at hand.

Very sad he's retiring
November 20, 2019
My appointment was not respected. I can understand when you fall behind with patients but being seen more than an hour after my appointment is not respectful of anyone's time. I will most likely go back to my previous ob/gyn. It was also hard to get an appointment.

Dr. Roca is a very professional doctor he delivered both of my children and has been my ob physician for many years I trust his medical advise and recommend him to any new patients looking for new physician
October 02, 2019
Dr. Roca was very sweet and explained all the medical side of things very well.
September 25, 2019
Dr. Roca should have listened to my concerns without acting like my concerns were silly. He should not have rushed me to make a decision right then and there. He could have been a little compassionate about the diagnosis. When discussing medications, he should have answered my questions without telling me "why are you so worried about side effects". Who isn't worried about side effects?? He could have sat down and talked to me calmly without rushing to get out of the room and pressuring me to make a decision. He is a good doctor, but he has horrible bedside manner.
September 25, 2019
I'm sorry to hear of him retiring. It'll be such a loss for so many of us
September 25, 2019
Maybe not to over book the doctor. So if the doctor gets backed up for what ever reason patient wouldn't have a long wait.
