4 Patient Reviews for Dr. Roberts

"From bedside manner before and after this unexpected surgery (I'm an active adult who runs 3-5 miles 4-5 days a week, and just last summer pedaled 808 miles from Portland, Oregon to San Francisco), to the technically superb Bentall procedure he performed, to honoring my request NOT to use a mechanical valve so that I can continue my active lifestyle, Dr. Roberts was and is simply the best surgeon one could have through this traumatic and terrifying ordeal. I recommend him without reservation."

-- Terrance Davis, Aortic Valve, 02/12/2014

"Dr. Harold Roberts is my ‘dream come true’! Dr. Roberts: The Man, The Miracle, The Legend. While his surgical prowess is renowned, his ability to assemble a team of experts to save my husband’s life must not be forgotten.

In a matter of moments, Dr. Roberts realized that he could not perform a robotic surgery (as planned) and quickly switched the procedure to an open heart sternotomy to accommodate my husband’s unique anatomy. Previously, we visited specialists and other surgeons who did not recognize that my husband’s situation was more difficult than first anticipated. During a critical moment, Dr. Roberts knew exactly what to do.

There is no other choice, he's the BEST! A true expert, a professional, and a man with a GREAT heart."
