At the orthopedic office of JOHN S. ROGERSON, M.D. we strongly believe in back-to-basics care – a human voice on the phone, a smile to greet you and a staff member to help you with complicated forms. We treat each patient as we would want a family member to be treated – with high quality, personalized care uncompromised by medical politics or financial incentives.
Dr. Rogerson is most of all a people person. He truly enjoys getting to know his patients and making the practice of medicine fun. His main focus in setting up his office practice has been on putting the patient first and foremost. He is committed to making sure that the changes in today’s health care environment do not undermine the quality of care he provides.
In his practice, Dr. Rogerson always pursues non-surgical treatment options first and only proceeds to operative intervention when the patient is fully educated as to the risks, gains and likely outcomes. He maintains his recognized expertise by attending, lecturing and performing surgical demonstrations at numerous national orthopaedic conferences.
