Dr. Root is an exceptional caring physician. She is my PCP and I am a patient with numerous medical situations. She monitors all of my physical problems and keeps up with everything on a regular schedule. God bless her.

Saw Dr Root as an alternate to my PCP in a critical time. Did not know what to expect. Patient "care quotient" extremely high. After a short exam and history, I did not feel like a new patient. Extraordinary. I took the time to research her practice and will call for follow up in her OC practice.
