Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

I specialize in the treatment of spinal conditions. I feel that every effort should be made to avoid surgery for neck and back problems. However, when conservative measures fail, I can provide surgical options that limit invasiveness and maximize motion. Every decision we make for your condition is shared between the doctor and the patient.Read more

I am very thankful that patients seek me out for solutions to their painful conditions.  I treat each of my patients like I treat my staff as family.  Your needs are first and foremost my concern.  Your satisfaction with care I give is equally important.  I appreciate any feedback you give and only ask that when your experience is not to your standards, please allow myself or my staff to interact and compromise with you to resolve your issue.  Please call my office with any concerns you may have and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

Thank You,

Marco Rodriguez, MD
