About Dr. Roof

I love being able to help patients by either curing their cancer or helping alleviate symptoms they may be experiencing related to their disease. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children, and our friends at Lake Norman or in the great outdoors.

"I chose a career in medicine to be able to improve patient's quality of life, and or their longevity."
