“I was very nervous going in to see Dr. Rodriguez for the first time; I was extremely anxious about the procedure that was about to be scheduled. Dr. Rodriguez immediately put my mind at ease. He really took a lot of time with me and my husband, and he was very explicit regarding the procedure, how he would go about it, and his reasoning behind the technique. He made me feel as if I were the only patient he had that day. I am confident that I chose the right doctor to handle my procedure and I would definitely recommend him.”
“I have already recommended numerous people to Dr. Rodriguez. He spends the time that is needed to explain everything to you!”
