I would not recommend Dr. Rodriguez or this office for breast cancer treatment. She was not as informed, which I realized I upon receiving a second opinion. She unnecessarily recommended chemotherapy which I did not need. Very glad I got another I opinion from another doctor before proceeding forward in treatment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rodriguez for over 20 years. She is a compassionate, thoughtful, and knowledgeable practitioner. I have always trusted her implicitly to give me the best care and advice. I tend to be very anxious during visits and she always manages to reassure me and guide me on the right path.

First appointment with her she prescribes the wrong cancer suppressing medicine; then, orders wrong type of mammogram, and; she states she does not do blood work/analysis normally expected of an oncologist. Lastly, she has crass, if not rude, bedside mannerisms. Flatly do not recommend Dr Rodriguez to anyone! Her mind seemed to be focused on other issues rather than my care.
