Dr. Rodriguez is a good doctor, experienced and knowledgable. He did a great job at American Spine. However, he had trouble adjusting to the new job largely due to Dr. Malik's legal troubles. He was hypervigilant when he isn't a hypervigilant personality. He had a short fuse at Kuresmart and was not willing to work with patients w/medication mngmt. I think Dr. Rodriguez handles being in charge better than the environment at kuresmart.

Dr. Rodriquez is excellent. He listens, explains procedures, offers options, and answers all questions thoroughly. The office staff is great. The “poor” review is due to the rudeness of the billing department. I tried, unsuccessfully to get their assistance in refilling a claim. Phone calls were ignored! They were rude when I tried to arrange a payment plan, would not answer my request for a doctor letter to my insurance, repeatedly sent me bills by text sometimes several in one day!

Attentive, and genuine. Top notch care, and realistic treatments. Additionally, at my second visit, when my results were not sent, as they should have been, they contacted the Imaging Center, and repeatedly apologized to me for the delay. THAT is really rare in the modern, sterile, often confusing and disengenuine care patients are more likely to receive today.

This was supposed to be a 5-star review but I can't get the fifth star to light. Dr. Rodriguez has been my pain doctor off and on for the last 15-20 years. I've moved to Florida and back, lost my husband and had some serious medical issues but I always go back to Dr. Rodriguez. He is, in my opinion, one of the best pain doctors around. He's very conservative (which is good for all of us) but he does whatever is needed to relieve my pain.

Horrible doctor. Rudest man. Does not take pain seriously. I don’t know why he is a doctor or maybe he purchased his PhD online. Seriously, save yourself the hassle and find a reputable doctor

Broken back but not in enough pain apparently in Maryland – Mar 15, 2018

Dr. Rod is the best pain doctor I've seen in a long time. I've been in pain management for 20 years. My original physician died and finding a new one proved to be harder than I thought it would be. I saw someone for a few years, but he just wanted to sell me stuff and I couldn't walk for days after a procedure. Thankfully, I found Dr. Rod! He is an absolute gem. He is more knowledgeable about my condition than many surgeons I've seen. He is very compassionate and kind. He's a great doctor!

Dr. Rodriguez overall is a good dr or he was at American Spine - he cared about patient care/truly listened to what they had to say and got it - it's what made him a good dr - even if mad - the reason for giving him a 1 is because of how he has morphed to polar end at Smart Pain Mngmt and only cares about CYA over patient care - @AS he would never have blamed a patient w/ portal emails/disrespects patient to do so or threat to term if disagree, etc - Smart Pain bad to encourage that
