If you like a Dr. With no bedside manners, this guy is for you. He botched my disc replacement so I was in there frequently post surgery. He never recognized me in person or by name. He had never read his previous notes before coming into the office. He had also never reviewed the tests he requested prior to coming into the office to see me (2 MRI's and 2 CT mylograms). At one point post surgery he asked if he had operated on me ? Really ? At that point my wife refused to come back with me

Unless you want yourself or your loved one to live in agony or die a horrible painful death, avoid Dr. Rodger! After completely botching a disc replacement, he attempted to correct his mistakes in 2 subsequent surgeries; however, the nerve damage and further back injury he caused directly resulted in my husband's death. He is an incompetent murderer!
