Dr. Roast was very attentive, took her time and did a through interview and listened attentively. She listened to my concerns and is acting to ensure that the cause of my health issues is identified so that the appropriate treatment can be given. I have nothing negative whatsoever to say about Dr. Roast. She exceeded my expectations.

Providence Health & Services Patient

My prior internal medicine physician recently left Providence. Dr. Roast was recommended to me by another provider, and this visit was a "meet and greet". Dr. Roast was on time; she was friendly, thorough and asked good questions. She reviewed my chart, did a basic exam and referred me to a specialist for a specific problem. It was a very positive experience.

seems more interested in doing only what protocol suggests than what the patient might need.
