About Dr. Roach

Philosophy of care

"Be A Rainbow In Someone Else's Cloud," Maya Angelou advises, and I wholeheartedly agree we should interact with others in a positive and motivating way. In doing so, I hope to inspire you to boost your outlook and make your day a more pleasant one. Kindness and positive thoughts encourage positive health outcomes.

Why I entered medicine

My father was a U.S. Army medic who regularly talked to my brother and me about basic emergency medical care, oceanography and outdoor activities. His words helped steer me in the direction of science and medicine. And after eagerly having my uncle explain to me his fresh post-cardiac surgery chest "zipper," I was hooked. It was then, at age 5, that I told my parents I wanted to be a doctor. Subsequent family medical events strengthened my decision.

Community involvement

I have mentored youths interested in medicine, worked with a church health ministry team and spoke on a hospital community health care awareness panel in New Jersey.

Personal interests

I spend my free time in pursuit of health, wellness and reading. I also enjoy travel and outdoor activities, such as water sports, skating and skiing.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
