Dr. Roller has been a constant in our lives for many years before MDVIP. He is personable and caring, always answers our questions and keeps us on the right health path. The biggest difference he has made in our lives is changing the way we eat. A meatless diet has not only improved our health but resulted in a significant weight loss. For this, we sincerely thank him.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
One of my primary interests is nutrition, particularly a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. We have tremendous influence over our health and longevity. For example, heart disease is the most prominent cause of death in our country, and despite genetics, modifiable risk factors may play an even more important role in its development. Our bodies have a tremendous power to heal, and one way we can support that is by replacing harmful foods with healthy, plant-based foods. A whole food, plant-based nutrition plan can play a critical role in reducing vascular diseases, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases as a cause of death.
I have greatly enjoyed my affiliation with MDVIP in the last several years. This personalized method of delivering healthcare affords me adequate time to better address the causes of disease, not just treat the symptoms. Many times, the best and safest answer is not another pill or procedure. My office is centrally located in midtown Tulsa at 47th and Harvard.

My wife contracted bacterial Meningitis three years ago, and was placed in ICU for treatment. Dr. Roller visited her in the hospital twice to comfort her, and answer any questions she had about her treatment while in the hospital.

I couldn't be happier with the care you've shown both Marilyn and me and am appreciative of the time you have to give in the MDVIP arrangement. I'll admit I was skeptical at first; not with respect to your ability or service but to the boutique medical arrangement in general. You've certainly made a positive difference in our lives by promoting healthy living and… See more
My husband and I came to Dr Roller at a time when he had been diagnosed with beginning stages of diabetes, then gall bladder surgery, then discovery of celiac disease. At first we thought Dr Roller's diet suggestions were a bit extreme, but my husband has been able to turn his health around to wellness. He takes the time to really listen, and is thorough.Thank you Dr Roller!
I was a Stage 3/4 Chronic Kidney disease-patient. I was on a plateau with only anemia as a side effect. Dr. Roller was the doctor that realized this problem and sent me on to a kidney specialist. However I was in between visits to my nephrologist and Dr Roller was running his regular check on my cholesterol. He always checks my creatine when he does my blood tests. He probably saved my life… See more
