last appointment was at 11:00 and the doctor entered my room at 12:20. he profusely apologized saying that "they scheduled new clients in followup slots" implying and that's why he's late. He got right to work and I had the best session with a doctor ever.

I would highly recommended Dr. Rodriguez but caution to expect him to be late. Thinking back, if he gives all his patients the same concern and cate he gave me, then I can understand his scheduling issues.

I spent my career in hospitals and have seen many practitioners at work. Dr. Rodriquez is among the most patient-friendly providers I have ever seen. He was organized, but not hurried, and he made sure I understood my disease and the rationale for his interventions. He was exceptional in all aspects of the care he provided.

I waited 20 minutes in the wait room then another 35 minutes in the exam room. Dr. Rodriguez apologized for the delay but I felt it was excessive.
Reviewed on Jun 8, 2018
I waited 57 minutes beyond my appointment time to see the doctor. My appointment was made several months ahead of time and I feel that amount of wait time is unacceptable. Also, if I am expected to wait nearly 1 hour, the staff should inform me of the expected wait time instead of just leave me in the room and say "he will be in shortly"
