Dr. Rodriguez is an amazing doctor. I never feel rushed when she's going over lab work or anything else. She explains herself very well and gives you the opportunity to ask questions, unlike other doctors I've seen that literally take 2 minutes with you and walk out. The only complaint I would have is when calling the office, it's hard to reach someone. The patient portal is not always up and running therefore making it hard to communicate. This won't keep me from seeing her, because she really is very knowledgeable and professional.
Good knowledge, good interaction with patients, good diagnostics, but unfortunately deficient customer service from her staff. Staff no answering phone calls, no returning voice messages, and some time no even notifying patients test results by publishing in the electronic system or by calling. Good doctor, bad staff.
Dr. Rodriguez is an awesome doctor However, when calling to make appointments, Crystal at the desk is usually pretty rude. If you can overlook the immaturity of this one person, the appointment is usually great!
