What People Say About Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Today, I visited with Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues. My assessment is that she not just an average medical doctor, but an EXCELLENT one. Reasons? She reviewed my cardiology reports in such a detailed, analytical manner. Her questions ranged beyond intuitive. She wants to understand the health of a patient, in its entirety, despite her specialty in Pulmonology. Beyond these facts, she was going to email my cardiologist to ensure no details of the report were overlooked. Her determination coupled with her curiosity, catapult her to the highest corridors of medicine. The Truesdale clinic is fortunate to have her on staff. Sincerely, Richard Fletcher

I’ve been suffering with severe asthma for over 15 years. I’ve been to many other pulmonary doctors trying to find relief and gain some control. Those doctors also had me wait beyond my appointment time and then spent as little as 5-10 mins with me wrote a script and sent me on my way. No success. Also had doctors that required a 1 hour or more phone hold just to get an appointment. Happily, I found Dr. Rodrigues. For the 1st Time in 15 years it is Dr. Rodrigues’ experience, up to date knowledge and willingness to spend time with me that has given me the 1st asthma free month! Dr. Rodrigues is more than worth any wait because she cares, listens, and spends the time necessary to provide you with a thorough exam to prepare the best plan of action. If you want a 5 min. visit and no results there are many other doctors to choose from. I would highly recommend Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues to all who want results. PS: I’ve never found a doctor that didn’t make me wait!

Do yourself a favor and run away from Dr roderigues. If u can even call her a doctor ! She is late every time I have been to her. She refused to allow me to pick my CPAP supplier insisting that I receive my supplies from another company. I had to talk over her to her medical assistant on my way out the door because she refused to let me receive supplies from a local supplier. She is rude and doesn’t examine you she literally puts the stethoscope on your chest for 3 seconds. Absolutely awful doct

I have benefited from Dr. Rodrigues' expertise. She has uncovered and successfully addressed problems of which I had been unaware. and she always gives me the time I need. I have been favorably impressed with Dr. Rodrigues since my first visit with her several years ago. A physician with a different specialty sent me to Dr. Rodrigues and I have experienced the results of her collaboration with others in the medical community on my behalf. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

I had one office visit with Dr. Rodriguez and was totally unimpressed with the patient care she provided. She kept me waiting for 25 minutes in exam room. She scheduled me for a CT scan and I had to call her office twice and leave messages for her before she finally returned my call with the results. Neither she nor her staff appear to have any concern for their patients. Would never recommend her.

I've been to Dr Rodrigues a couple of times only because my physician sent over a referral..I have since found a different pulmonary doctor. This woman seems to think it's ok to be over an hour late for my scheduled appointment. I can understand once, however ALL the time! This is NOT acceptable. The staff continuously has to apologize for her inconsiderate tardiness. Even on the first appointment of the day, she was 50 minutes late. My time is valuable as well!!

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Unfortunately I've had to see her several times over the past year and each appointment has been frustrating. She doesn't listen to the patient at all, she is Impossible to reason with, she doesn't even perform thorough physical exams, she draws inaccurate conclusions aside from medical evidence, and she refuses to admit she's wrong even when presented with facts. I don't understand how this woman is still practicing medicine. Go to another doctor.
