"He’s the best! If I had my choice of any Ortho in the country, I would choose Dr Roca. I have been his patient since 2011 after an accident which left both my rotator cuffs torn and my knee messed up. He has done 3 surgeries on my shoulders and I now have a job working in a field that requires lifting all day long. The man is amazing."
