Believe me when I tell you he has made life tolerable after 12 spinal fusions. I have seen many Doctors and surgeons and am a Registered RRT and worked in Neuro. He cares. I would not trust anyone else to touch my spine. I love his staff and Jordan his PA. Keep up the good work guys.

I went to Dr. Rodrigo for severe back pain. He performed a pain block in his office on both sides of my SI joints. 2 days later.. I could not stand, walk & had shooting, stabbing pain in both lower legs. He referred me to a neurologist for MS who after 4 months of extensive testing, found nothing wrong. Dr. Rodrigo’s PA-Jordan told me to “prepare myself for a diagnosis of ALS!!” I was in shock & crying. My neurologist was livid that someone would tell me this. I called Dr. Rodrigo’s office manager & she assured me that the Dr. would be calling me which I have not heard from him. I called back the office manager and left a message 2 wks later & she never responded to me. Do yourself a favor & DO NOT go to this Dr. I am a Registered Nurse of 35 yrs and have never seen such incompetence & unprofessionalism. I wish I could give a review of 0 the care is so bad there..it is just an assembly line.

While I have no problem with Dr Rodrigo, whom I consider to be an excellent Pain Management Doctor, his front office staff is anything but. I saw Dr Rodrigo over a month ago and he said we would need to schedule an ablation procedure. I have since called 5 different times, left 3 messages for someone to call me which they have not done, spoke to someone on two occasions who promised to call back which they never have. All I want to know is whether the Doctor no longer wants me as a patient, and if not, then I'm sure there are other doctors who are willing to do so.

M. Brokaw – Feb 12, 2020
I had an appointment at 1:00 pm. I arrived at 12:50 & signed in. I then sat until 12:20 before someone acknowledged me. I was told I would be taken in shortly. Ten minutes later, I was asked for my ID and insurance cards. Ten minutes later, I asked for my cards back and walked out. There was another man in the office who was there before me and he said he also had a 1:00 pm appointment. Never again.

I do consider Dr. Rodrigo an fine physician. However, I have very low marks for the front desk. I had problems with an incomplete referral sent to my primary care physician and have spent several days trying to resolve the issue. I have been trying to contact the doctor's office to acquire a hard copy but have been sent to several departments. The office staff is friendly but not efficient.

Gregory Lynn Johnson – Jan 10, 2020
My husband, Greg, who rarely complains, was in unbearable back pain due to a ruptured disc. Dr. Rodrigo gave him three sets of shots in his back. After the second set of shots, my husband was in a lot less pain. And after the third set, he was back to himself and except for a newfound awareness and some physical therapy, he is able to live the life he had before he got hurt. Thank you very much, Dr. Rodrigo.
