Would you separate and re-pot an orchid if it looked like this?

This is the way every orchid I buy seems to be when I either purchase it or receive one from the mail.
Totally root bound with healthy roots.
Problem is , seems like they rot pretty quickly once they are in our homes!
Where is the air movement allowed or the space to grow?
Or the ability yo dry out before the center rots away ?
This time I want to keep them healthy rather than loose most of the roots like I always do.
What would you do ?
Just received this one a week ago.
Spread roots apart and put it in a better mix?
Pics to come soon

Thank you
