I have been seeing Dr. Rodriguez for over 10 years for hypothyroidism. I travel over an hour to see her, because she is technically one of the most competent endocrinologists I have seen. I highly recommend her medical services.

Dr. Rodriguez herself is fantastic. Staff are rude, non-responsive, and uncaring. They often act irritated or inconvenienced that they have to speak to you. I have been a patient here for over 15 years and they are still rude.

Dr. Rodriguez is the most caring and thorough endocrinologist available in Houston. Whether you live close by or are in another country the patient portal facilitates communication easily between doctor and patient. She has the best bedside manners and remembers personal things about you. She is extremely well versed in the medical field she practices and there is no one that can compete with her. Her staff is also helpful and kind. I would choose no other doctor but her!

Dr. Rodriguez herself is wonderful. However, her staff acts as gatekeepers and messages do not get delivered, phone calls do not get returned. I needed to talk with the doctor about test results, called twice and no return call. Wanted to schedule a second appointment but phone call to do so was never returned. Urgent appointments are impossible. I think her staff keeps things form her and does not deliver messages, etc. Really bad.

Dr Rodriguez was very helpful in thoroughly testing me and acting as a pivot point and advocate to help me find what was going wrong with my body and who to go to to get proper care. Her staff is very kind & caring & she has a great flobotomist in house. I would highly recommend her!

My appointment was at 9:30 am first patient. Receptionist forgot to mention to be a little patient the doctor is on a scooter device trying to get around to see patience. Dr. Vivian and i make eye contact when she notices I attempted to walk out to reschedule and instead of her apologizing sincerely she says I can call back to reschedule like she doesn't car. I knew I shouldn't have come in instead I should have found another doctor. This is proof that I should.
