Thanks to Doctor Rogers I have my life back. Three weeks ago (before he preformed my microdisectomy) there would be times when I couldn't even crawl, the pain was excruciating; now I forget sometimes that I was ever injured.
He really listens to and cares about his patients. I had a lot of questions and concerns and he took the time to help me understand, and was forthcoming about potential risks and expectations.
The surgery was a complete success and I honestly don't see how you could find a more skilled, qualified, and attentive surgeon.
Angela is awesome and helped deal with a pharmacy that was being difficult. Richard is a champion of communication and made the arrangements very easy. And I'm sure Dr. Rogers is the top of his trade. Not to mention all of them are very kind, genuine people. Can't recommend enough!
After 2 years searching spine surgeon for my mom, finally we found Dr David Rogers who did the surgery . All i can say he is One of the best, caring Doctor.
45 days after 2 big spine surgery my mom can walk without walker or cane.
He is an amazingly talented Surgeon . Would highly recommend him without hesitation.
Thank you to you Dr. Rogers and stuff:)
Prior to meeting Dr. Rogers, my mom had already been through 2 back fusions and 3 other back procedures by different doctors. My mom wasn't able to walk, sit or stand for more then 5 minutes at a time and was on the verge of becoming paralyzed. No other doctor wanted to treat my mom because he condition was so bad. My mom had also withdrawn from family activities because she was in so much pain.
Dr. Rogers schedule my mom for urgent surgery, prior to surgery Dr. Rogers sat with our family to discuss the surgery in detail and answer any questions we had. Dr. Rogers made sure we were all comfortable and assured us he was going to do all he can to help my mom.
Dr. Rogers remove the scar tissue that was pressing against her spine. When my mom woke up from her surgical procedure, she felt relief right away. Within a month or two Dr. Rogers made sure my mom was in physical therapy and getting all the follow up care she needed.
My mom is now able to walk with a cane, sit and have conversations with us and go out for walks. Dr. Rogers gave us back our mom, I cannot thank Dr. Rogers and his amazing team for all they have done for my family.
It is very hard to find doctors like Dr David Rogers, who genuinely care about patients. Thank you Dr Rogers.
Professional and very kind.
He explained every option clearly at the first visit.
He went above and beyond to schedule the surgery asap.
On the day of surgery we felt he was a close family member.
Would highly recommend him without hesitation.
The office staff are incredibly nice and helpful too,thank you Richard and Angela.
I literally cannot express in words the gratitude that I have for Dr Rogers. I got my life back after he performed his Magic with my lumbar spine. His attentiveness and great attention to details, his kindness and bedside manners were second to none . Talk about hands on, post surgery he literally changed my dressing himself daily to insure there was no chance of infection. After 3 days I was in rehab and within 10 days I walked out feeling 100% better. The service and level of expertise is beyond first Class!
Dr. Rogers is an amazingly talented surgeon. He performed a two level cervical disc replacement on me four years ago and it has truly changed my life. He also has a kindness and a compassion for his patients that is often not seen in the medical profession. I highly recommend Dr. Rogers.
I was referred to Dr. Rogers by my coworkers wife who has known him for many years. She spoke so highly of him not only as a fantastic surgeon, but a wonderful person as well. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Rogers and the quality of care he has given me. I had a debilitating lumbar spine/sciatic nerve issue in 2013 which he corrected.
More recently I had a cervical spine issue that he was also able to correct. In both instances my quality of life improved immensely!
He takes the time throughly explain MRI and X-rays results and discuss non surgical options you may have. He will answer all your questions and if surgery is needed no one is better than Dr. Rogers, in my opinion.
His staff is also great, Angela and Richard are both well informed and really nice!
If I could give dr Rogers 0 stars I would. I have never waited in an empty office so long on so many occasions. Dr Rogers treated me with sub par care because of my insurance provider and then dropped me as a patient because I cried after waiting three+ hours for him on multiple occasions. This asshole would schedule my appointments and take his lunch when I arrived. When I think about this 'doctor' my heart races because of what a horrible experience I had. Sick people go to doctors looking for help, and doctor Rogers and his staff treated me like crap and made me feel guilty for being unhappy that I was sick and hurting. I spent months in therapy sobbing about how this guy and his staff didn't help or heal me and then made me feel guilty about it. Don't go here!
in short, Dr. Rogers saved my life, not once, but twice. more capable hands you will not find in this entire city, state or country. i'd wager his expertise is renown the world over. I've had two procedures with Dr. One a neck fusion and the other- the one i'm recovering from now- a redo of a previous lower lumbar fusion.
im writing this at 2am, wondering how lucky i am to be alive and mobile, and how much i trust him to make this remotely possible. he is a man who is consumed with making the patient better. He even shortened his vacation to make sure i was ok.
his staff- second to none- Angela- a bulldog with a heart of gold- the kind of person you NEED when dealing with insurances. She will make things happen! I trust her like no other. Richard is the smile and pleasantry you need when u walk in to calm you down. a necessity when dealing with the fear of permanent disability.
so to summarize, if you are reading this, you have questions. i hope this answers some and allays your fears. Dr . Rogers will make miracles happen. All you need is faith in him to make it happen.
I was referred to Dr Rogers by my primary surgeon, Dr Bardakjian. Went to my first appointment last week due to upper back pain I've had for awhile. Dr Rogers was beyond amazing, kind, understanding and most of all very caring towards my pain and issues. After my first appointment, he sent me to get an MRI and X Rays, turns out I have a thoracic upper back issue. Thanks to Dr Rogers and his great staff, I am now setup for physical therapy and pain management with another specialist. Men don't want to be cowards when it comes to pain; but sometimes enough is enough and when you have to do something about it, especially to your back....go see Dr Rogers, I assure you, you won't regret it.....
Dr. Rogers is the most compassionate doctor I have ever been to and he is a fantastic surgeon. Went to him and discovered I had a terrible problem and he did an amazing surgery and now I have no pain. His concern for his patients is amazing and he is always there in case u have any questions or concerns. I must say his staff are wonderful people also. They always greet u with a hello including ur name. They r all very involved with the patients and u can always talk to them if need be. Again he is there for his patients and treats everyone as an equal.
Dr. Rogers is a true gift to the medical community. I have been in the health care field for a number of years and have had to privilege to work with many wonderful physicians. I found myself in a very scary situation that any health care worker might encounter, and that is when you find that you have become the patient. I took a bad fall, and started having complications. I wasn't sure where to turn. I made an appointment with my pain management physician, and within minutes was in a conference call with Dr. Rogers. I was immediately comfortable with his kind demeanor, and vast knowledge. I received the best care from him, beyond what I have ever experienced. His dedication, knowledge, kindness, compassion, and true commitment to the best outcome for his patients was evident in all areas of his practice. I had a full recovery because of Dr Rogers, and I am so grateful for him and
his wonderful staff, Angela and Richard. Dr Rogers, you are the BEST!!! Thank you, many times over.
Dr Rogers is the best surgeon I have ever been to...and I have been to a few!! From the County Hospital to Beverly Hills....and I never thought I would find such an excellant Dr in Glendale!! He sat down with me and discussed my situation...and he took his time!! And I mean he took his time...going over every aspect of how he would approach my surgery....Dr Rogers is on the cutting edge with his knowledge of surgery but, he is old fashioned with his approach to Doctor patient counseling...
He does not rush you through your appointment, he makes sure you fully understand your choices...
He truly cares about you as a person and patient...and that in and of its self is a rare thing these days...
So not only is he a great Dr and Surgeon he is a great human being....and he is not so bad on the eyes either!!
Dr Rogers is an excellent surgeon and a caring person. I suffered back pain for almost three years and had tried many approaches before consulting with Dr Rogers. My diagnosis was stenosis in several lumbar areas. From the first meeting and through the surgery he and his staff made me comfortable and confident for a successful outcome. He performed the surgery at the Marina del Rey Hospital. It was a long operation and everything went smoothly. My stay at the hospital was very good and the nursing staff was excellent. I was told the healing would take time and along with physical therapy I progressed at a steady pace. It was almost six months to regain complete recovery. I am now able to do all the activities that I enjoy and I am pain free and feel better than I ever expected. I am grateful that I found Dr Rogers and that he agreed to be my surgeon .
I don't even know how to begin to thank Dr. Rogers for saving my mother from a miserable and painful time in her life.
When I realized that she was in good hands, I didn't' care if we had to wait the whole day to see him...yes! He is that great!!!. Last week I waited 3 hours at the DMV to get my license renewal, 1 hour at my doctor's office for a regular check up, and 45 minutes at the blood lab for a test because I walked in without an appointment.
My mother is 82 yrs old and she wasn't able to walk, and the pain was so excruciating that we thought she was not able to ever walk again and she was facing a grim future.
I feel absolutely fortuitous to find doctor Rogers, his professionalism knowledge and the way he conveys complex information is something that rarely is found among doctors. He was willing to do the highly complex surgery that other doctors refused to performed due to my mother's age and other health issues.
After getting clearance from her other doctors, surgery was schedule. Angela and Richard really made this process easy, and as busy as they are, they managed to keep us informed and were able to get back to us in a timely manner every time.
My mother's surgery was a success, she is back on her feet again and walking. She is still at the hospital for a few days in post operative physical therapy, but her smile and happiness that she is experiencing right now is invaluable.
Thank you Dr Rogers for giving my mother her life back, and our family that priceless piece of mind. I have no words to express my gratitude and we feel so blessed to meet such an outstanding professional.
Dr. Rogers is a God sent angel! He did spine surgery for my dad when no other surgeon would dare fix the horrible fusion USC County hospital did 9 years ago. Dr. Rogers did a great job and I am writing this review while sitting next to my dad's recovery bed in Glendale Memorial.
Dr. Rogers if you read this, we are forever thankful to you and you are always in our prayers. God bless you!
Where do I even begin? Let's just start with, the only reason I even signed up onto Yelp was to write this man a raving review for all that he has done for my grandmother. Words can't even express the true gratitude that we have for him, his staff and his work.
In all my years dealing with many different types of doctors in 2 different states, I have never met one that has cared so personally about a patient before. He takes the time to explain everything and makes sure that you truly do understand the medical gibberish that most doctors don't care to break down for you. He goes above and beyond what he is supposed to do. My grandmother was in the hospital for 36days, and every single day he made sure to stop by and see her, no matter how busy or tired he was, no matter the time of day it was, he made sure to stop and see her. WHO DOES THAT?
He still continues to personally check up on her even though it has already been almost 3months post op. He truly cares about her, and in no way sees her as a paycheck as most MD's unfortunately do now. It upsets me that people complain of the wait time in the room. Yes, a couple of times we had to wait a bit past our appt time, however I would much rather know that I am in the hands of a surgeon who is running late because he has so many patients that trust him and that he makes a point to make time for, instead of walking straight into an office and right into seeing a surgeon immediately because he doesn't have anyone else to see. Get my drift? He is a busy and popular man because he is a wonderful surgeon and MD. As for the phone thing, how could one know he is on a personal call? One of our appointments he had a call from the hospital and had to step out to take it. Completely understandable! He is just taking that extra step. That is something to be commended for, not put down for. I would hope that if there were an emergency with my grandmother that he would take the call, as I am sure every other patient might feel as well. Priorities are not taken lightly in this office. Speaking of the office, it is professional, clean, comfortable and inviting. Especially with the very personable staff he has. Angela and Richard both are great to work with and always a joy to see upon appointments. The entire experience from start to finish, every office visit, is always a pleasure. They all feel like family and friends at this point, and do not in any way brush you off or make you feel unimportant at anytime like we have felt in other offices.
My grandmother speaks spanish, but despite the language barrier he always talks to both her and I. She told me one day after our visit that she always feels like part of the conversation and that he acknowledges that she is there instead of just talking to me about her as if she weren't there. He knows enough of a little bit of spanish, and she knows enough of a little bit of english that they will speak spanglish with each other to have more of that patient/doctor relationship instead of her never communicating with him and vice versa. Once again, he takes that extra step when he doesn't have to. And always asks her at the end, in spanish, to her, if she has any extra questions for him. She loves that.
I have never seen or known of a doctor to walk an extra mile for a patient. He really has given me hope once again that there are doctors who do what they do because they CARE and because they took an oath, not because of how much money they will make. He has performed more than one surgery on my grandmother, and watching her walk around painless and getting back to her normal self is just an undeniable joy to see. He is a miracle worker and we were blessed to come across such an MD as he is. I recommend him to anyone who needs done what he does. He not only is a caring doctor, but a brilliant one. You would only be so lucky to have him work on you. You may have to wait a little in the waiting room, (which we only had to once or twice fyi), but frankly who doesn't have to wait in a waiting room at the doctors anymore. But let me tell you what, he is worth the wait and you will be happy that you did. If i could give him more than 5 starts I would.
I took my mother to many doctors until we found Dr. Rogers. We think he is a brilliant doctor and his staff is wonderful. They are very helpful and they treat you like family. We were referred to him by a friend. The doctor definitely knows what he is doing and he genuinely cares about his patients. I noticed some of the reviews here about the wait time and yes, you may wait a little to see him but it is worth it. I don't know about you but I rather go to a doctor who is busy then to one who has no patients.
