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!

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.

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 .
