Love, love, LOVE Dr. Rodner! He is truly genuine, kind, patient, caring, and professional!! He took extra time to make sure I understood my surgery options and explained the procedures in language that I could understand. He made sure I felt comfortable with my decision to have a proximal row carpectomy of my right (dominant wrist) four years ago. I have never regretted this decision. He also personally followed up with phone calls after the surgery to ask how I was doing. He is awesome!

Dr. Rodner is not only an exceptional hand surgeon, he truly cares about his patients, remembers what is happening for his patients and makes sure his patients are well informed about the nature of the problem and the options for treatments. Plus, he is a very warm, funny and kind person. A true professional who takes time to listen to you and never makes you feel rushed.

Dr. Rodner is so nice and explains everything so that you can understand It and does not talk over you. He never makes you feel like you are wasting his time. He never rushes you when you have questions, so you may have to wait 5 to 15 minutes for your appointment, but you don't have to call after every appointment because he didn't explain something. The only time I have had to call is because I have forgotten to ask a question.

Dr Rodner performed basal joint replacement surgery on my hand in April, 2016 because I had extreme pain from arthritis in my dominant (right) hand. In less than three months I am virtually pain free and have regained use of my hand. He did an amazing job and we would highly recommend him!

I saw Dr. Rodner in March 2016 to evaluate hand trouble after surgery from another doctor.. He was really down to earth and a straight shooter. If I had known about him before my surgery I would have selected him hands down .. no pun intended ! .. well maybe ! lol! .. I've had several surgeries in my time and have had some great doctors.. If Dr. Rodner didn't just specialize in one area.. I would choose him as a primary surgeon.. I highly recommend him !!

Dr. Rodner recently reset my son's index finger with 3 pins. I didn't choose Dr. Rodner, all arrangements were made through my son's college. I could NOT have found a better doctor on my own. His bedside manner was beyond anything I have experienced since choosing my kids' pediatrician 20 years ago. He is thorough, patient, thoughtful and professional. I feel blessed that he is caring for my son's injury.

We first met Dr. Rodner after a family member (who is also in the medical field) recommended him. Our son broke his ulna & radius wrist bones and his ligaments were entrapped by a large fragment. Dr. Rodner performed a rare emergency procedure that was successful beyond expectation. We are forever grateful for Dr. Rodner and highly recommend him.
