"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."

"Dr Roca is the best! He has performed three shoulder surgeries on me for rotator cuff repair. He did a wonderful job each time. He is very good at explaining what he is going to do and why. I started seeing him in 2011 after an accident. There is no one I would trust like him. Dr Roca has been a Godsend to me. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for me. He treats his patients with patience and dignity."
