    Very caring. Gave me his coat when room was freezing. Had to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes with no explanation until I asked. But he was very decisive and the team worked hard to make surgery happen quickly.

    If there were more stars to give, I would give them to Dr. Rodrigues-Ruesga. He is a highly trained, highly intelligent doctor who did his residency at world-famous Mayo Clinic. Before I had colon resection surgery due to diverticulits this fall, I had several important Dallas doctors tell me that he was amazing in the operating room, and that there were few doctors who were in his category. Not only is he a fine surgeon,but he also really cares about his patients - a man of faith and integrity.
