Great experience all around. I saw Dr. Rodts for a herniated disc. He was exceptional throughout the process from consultation to surgery and post op. The surgery went exactly as planned with no complications. I would highly recommend Dr. Rodts as he is an experienced, knowledgeable doctor.

Dr. Rodts is without a doubt is an extremely intelligent spine surgeon. His surgical procedures are always done carefully. Dr. Rodts discusses all aspects of an operation that he will perform so that as a patient you feel completely relaxed prior to surgery by his explanations of exactly what will take place. He always speaks to the patient in the patients level so there are no misunderstandings which will put you in a very comfortable state of mind with Dr. Rodts expertise as a spine surgeon.

Dr. Gerald Rodts, Jr, MD is the very best Neurosurgeon in the entire Southeast. He has operated on my back twice, L4-5 and recently L3-4. My husband worked for Medtronic and Dr. Rodts was doing a research project for Medtronic. At one of Medtronic's conventions, my husband ask the whole group who hey would recommend to do back surgery on his wife (me) and they all stated without hesitation, Dr. Gerald Rodts at Emory in Atlanta, he is the best. And, his bedside manner cannot be beat!

I have already referred several patients to Dr. Rodts, one of them had surgery and is grateful to be walking without pain again!

This is my 2nd surgery with Dr. Rodts. The results were excellent in 2011 and the early results today (6-7-17) for the 2nd surgery are excellent. He's extremely busy so getting appointments can be challenging; but he's well worth the wait.

There are people you meet that you feel as if you have known them all your life. You feel instant confidence in what he tells you,and his own confidence in his field. I know there are a lot of Doctors out there but I am honored to have met Dr Rodts.

So far my experience with Dr Rodts has been terrific. He spends plenty of time with you as a patient and answers all questions. I had a drainage issue after surgery and the office was able to get me right in to see him. His staff has been very accessible as well.

Personable, instills confidence. Takes the time you need to answer questions & explain procedures. I especially like that he uses your X-rays &/or MR I results to teach you about your issues .
