Patient Comments

  • Jan 01, 2020

    One of the best providers I’ve had a pleasure of meeting. Dr. Rodriguez was knowledgeable, patient, empathic and she made me feel at ease. She also saw me at the last minute and didn’t want me going into the holiday without being seen. I couldn’t be more happy with my visit.

    Dr. Maria Rodriquez instantly made me feel welcome and relaxed. She patiently listens and offered a logical path forward. In addition, she provided a way to minimize my trips (out of state) to see her. This is tremendously helpful considering the cost of travel and taking the time off work. This motivates me as a patient to adhere to the recommendations she gives. I finally have hope that this issue will be resolved instead of me just trying to cope with it daily. Elexis (sp?), the assistant was also warm and welcoming. I am very thankful to be able to receive care from this great team!
