Reviews

"Wonderful doctor. Very nice and good at explaining everything. Knowledgeable and helped me out tremendously. Still very satisfied since the last “good” review I did last year. I am adding to my original review because I could not do another one. I did the last review and raved about Dr. Roca. He is so patient, kind and gentle and unlike many other doctors, is willing to take the time to explain things. He makes sure you understand and wants to ensure you don’t have any more questions or concerns. Still a Dr. Roca satisfied patient ! Next up is rotator cuff surgery pretty soon. I feel very confident that it will go well!!!!!"

"I injured my foot in a fall while visiting Family in Birmingham. I was seen at an Urgent Care and referred to an orthopedic for evaluation of left 5th metatarsal transverse displaced fracture. I retired to the Gulf Coast so I requested to see a doctor near home. I called my PCP who arranged for a referral to Dr Roca the following Monday in Mobile. This was my first known fracture with a history Osteoporosis I was very concerned. When I saw Dr Roca he looked at my X-ray , interviewed me about my accident and carefully explained the plan of repairing my left foot surgically. He explained why I needed two screws placed to correct and guide the rebuilding of my foot. I was scheduled for left foot surgery the following week. When I arrived for surgery after waiting for my scheduled time, I was called back to Surgery Prep and prepared for the procedure. Dr Roca explained again what he was going to do and answered my questions. I next remember waking with no pain and being discharged home."
