Dr. Rogers was the pediatrician for both my boys Brandon Jackson and Michael L. Jackson. He was a great, caring and attentive Doctor. My youngest son Brandon suffered with severe stomach pain off and on when he was 4 years old. Doctor Rogers kept trying to to figure out the mystery because when I took him to the doctor he seemed healthy and happy with no pain. Dr. Rogers believed me when I told him what was goig on and said he would get to the bottom of it. When he finally did he said "we have to get this child in surgery right now if not he could die at any moment." He found that his large intestine was wrapping around his small intestines causing it not to function correctly. Thanks to his caring and diligence personality my son is now 30 years old and doing well. Doctor Rogers, his wife , and staff were a blessing to my family and surrounding communities.
R.I.P. Doctor Rogers and thank you for your gifted calling and service.

Thank you,

I love Dr. ROGERS. He was very kind and showed much love and care for our babies. My daughter was 18 and struggling with the fact that Dr Roger's could no longer be her doctor. He found my son's cancer because he took a routine office visit one step farther. I could share many stories, but most of all I feel blessed that he was my children pediatrician. I love you too Mrs. Rogers. ❤❤❤

I will always have fond memories of Dr. Rogers. He was my 2 children's pediatrician until they were too old to go to him. He was such a fantastic doctor and caring man. My daughter was special needs and he was always so concerned and thorough with her care. Always went above and beyond with his care. My prayers go out to his family. The world has lost a very special man.

DrRogers was our pediatrician also, he was such a good and kind person. He always a good staff also. He took wonderful care of my children but was especially good to our daughter who had health issues. She loved him and Mrs. Rogers so much and they were both so good with her. He always took extra time with us and made sure he addressed all our concerns! We couldn't have asked for a better doctor.
