Patient Reviews (4)
in Arlington, TX |
Dr. Rodriquez is highly skilled physician with a high priority for overall excellent patient care. I had stage 2 rectal cancer and was treated in 2009 successfully.
Dallas, Texas |
Seemed more concerned about getting me in and out. After surgery still aloof and states that symptoms I was having would just take time to heal. Six months later I returned to my general doctor and cancer tumors are still there. Now have a new surgeon and had to have another surgery. Lost a year of my life due to a bad choice in doctor. I would be very cautious. Waiting on pathology to come back now just hoping he did not cost me my life as well.
in Sulphur springs Texas |
Very caring. Gave me his coat when room was freezing. Had to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes with no explanation until I asked. But he was very decisive and the team worked hard to make surgery happen quickly.
in Longview, TX |
If there were more stars to give, I would give them to Dr. Rodrigues-Ruesga. He is a highly trained, highly intelligent doctor who did his residency at world-famous Mayo Clinic. Before I had colon resection surgery due to diverticulits this fall, I had several important Dallas doctors tell me that he was amazing in the operating room, and that there were few doctors who were in his category. Not only is he a fine surgeon,but he also really cares about his patients - a man of faith and integrity.
