Dr Orlando Rodriguez is an amazing physician. He is very down to earth and explains everything throughly with humor. Having worked in healthcare for over 35 years and reading medical records all those years, his documentation is awesome. I read his documentation for over 12 years & he is the best. The quality of a physician’s documentation is a mirror of the quality of care a physician provides their patients. He provides the absolutely best care you could possibly imagine. I would recommend Dr Rodriguez to anyone seeking an excellent pulmonary physician. He also has an excellent bedside manor.

This Dr has no understanding of suffering and pain. He thinks he does and doesn't listen. Any positive review had to have been written by his relatives.

After two months of seeing my gp and taking antibiotics and then a trip to the ER and a stay in ICU, I was still having trouble breathing. I found Dr. Rodriguez through this portal and made an appointment based on the recommendations. He was the only doctor able to find a combination of meds that would alleviate the problem! I'm so grateful to Dr. Rodriguez for his help!
