Dr. Richard G Rodriguez has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

That's why now a days people don't give a crap or care for people because of nasty bath mouthing people like you ! Get your facts straight before assuming!
I've been taking my child to Dr.Rich for 3years until I've ran into situations with him about things that was never detected in my child which was fought by his nurse practitioner Nurise. I was about to leave the office till she came into sunshine pediatrics,then I changed my mind. My kids love nurise !I've seen his old practitioners before and stated never again but nurise is awesome.ive recommended some of my friends to her and they love her as well. I also read blogs about her in different mommy groups. We like dr rich but prefer to see NUrise his practitioner .
You don't realize how good a doctor is until you have an emergency. I had been going to Dr. Rodriguez for over 2 years when my daughter started having symptoms of a UTI. I took her to Sunshine Pediatrics and she actually saw the Nurise. My daughter had to drink a whole bottle of water until she dropped some tablespoons of urine. It was an extremely dark brown color. When I explained the symptoms to Nurise, she chalked it up to my daughter "touching herself" and wanted to give me a cream. When I asked about the urine test, she said it came back fine. I strongly encouraged her to check it again of which she informed me they had thrown it out. The nurse then came in WITH HER CHILD ON HER HIP. Come to find out the nurse didn't do the urine test because she had to go pick up her daughter. Therefore, the front desk lady had checked it. After I finally convinced them to do another test, which showed she DID have a UTI, they game me an antibiotic. The next day my daughter's face was swollen and she was throwing up. When I called Dr. Rodriguez (I was done with dealing with Nurice) he informed me she was fine and it was just the antibiotic. Obviously, we left them and found another doctor who ended up put my daughter into the hospital and referred us to a Pediatric Nephrologist. My daughter had a severe kidney infection and was in the hospital for 3 days. After leaving the office I have heard other horrible stories from this practice. Don't risk the safety of your child.
