“My philosophy of care is equal access to quality health care for all, no matter where you’re from, what you earn, what you believe or what you practice,” says Dr. Roberts. “I have always felt like the best way I can serve my surrounding communities is through providing access to quality health care to all, even where it can be difficult to receive, such as rural populations.
