He misdiagnosed me, telling me that I had connective tissue disease which was causing the pain in my shoulder and hip. He sent me to pain management. An MRI showed I had three herniated disc in my back and a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder. When Dr Rodriguez saw that I had seen an ortho...and that his (Dr. R) diagnosis was WAY wrong, he refused to continue treating me stating "you went to an ortho let HIM treat you." He marked my medical file so that no other Fla Med Rheuma. would treat me.

Such a great doctor!!!! He makes sure you understand everything and answers any questions. He's kind and patient, and you can tell he cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Rodriguez has excellent bedside manners. He is very thorough in assessing your condition. Explains very well so the patient can understand, and actually encourages you to ask him questions. He takes time to listen and converse.

My first visit Dr. Rodriguez was great. He ordered blood work, x-rays, which came back fine but he stated that I didn't fit the Occam's Razor. Now he is flat out refusing to see me in an exam room and keeps brushing me off onto his PA or NP. If the lab tests are inconclusive he refuses to diagnose based solely on symptoms. I keep getting calls about a week before my scheduled appts stating he's out of town...REALLY?? I've filed a complaint with the corporate office of FMC!
