I had cataract surgery with Dr. Rodriguez and it turned out great. He also put an Istent in at that time. I plan on having him put an Istent in my other eye in the near future. Excellent surgeon

Liked that he explained that I did not need nor did he want to do further surgery on my eyes as he felt I had had enough; any more would not guarantee help for my eye. He prescribed drops instead which made me feel very encouraged by him.

Dr. Brandon Rodriguez was very professional. I was given a thorough exam and learned more about the condition of my eyes than in recent visits to other doctors. I had both eyes operated on, one at a time. Both operations were extremely quick, and the recovery time minimal. I appreciated the medical staff at St. Luke's for their kindness. They were on top of everything. I would recommend cataract surgery and lenses replacement with Dr. Rodriguez for anyone who is looking for excellent results. I learned about Dr. Rodriguez and St. Luke's through my mother, who also had the same type of surgery I month before I did and she is as satisfied as I am. We are both extremely grateful. I can see better than ever before, and can drive at night again. It has been a life changer. Thank you, Dr. Rodriguez!

I think Dr. Rodriques is very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, I have been seeing him for approximately 2 years and my problem still exist. I'm not sure what causes my red eye problem and St. Lukes has not been able to figure it out. I have to give them credit. They have tried everything they can think of but my problem still exist. My eyes are so red all the time that I'm embarrassed to go out with friends because they look terrible. St. Lukes has done allergy tests, blood tests, the lipiflow procedure and cultures. I'm guessing they have run out of options. Don't know where to go from here.
