I have to say Dr. Mark Roome! I met him approximately 21 years ago when he came to The Child Life Center fresh out of residency. Dr. Joel Schwab was my pediatrician as well as my children(s) and asked me during a visit if I wouldn't mind if Dr. Roome could diagnose the illness one of my kids was having. I agreed, and from that moment on, I found him to be a sincere, caring, and compassionate doctor who always treated me and my children with the utmost respect. My children are now grown and wish that they could find a doctor with such caring as Dr. Roome!

I didnt see this until now...I wish I would have Dr Roome has treated all 8 of my kids, my brother and both my sisters. He is ver direct and to the point but is AWESOME with the kids. You might not like what he has to say but he would NEVER steer you wrong. Everyone has a bad day even doctors so for the couple people that complained maybe, just maybe, it was his turn to have a bad day. Maybe get to know him more as a person and you might understand more. You have to be just as patient and understand as you would as of him and the office! YOU ROCK DR ROOME!!!!

But new a young life that was saved when I recommended them to dr.Townsend...so my question is..where did he go..I was afraid to go.

Mark Ambrose is a physician assistant and not a physician. He is a PA and not a MD. Never the less, he is a great medical provider.
