Very thorough. He listened to my symptoms. He evaluated for himself with patience and care. And weeded out all the possibly circumstances leading to what brought me to the office. I would return and recommend him to others.

This is my first review that does not have the word excellent. I saw 2 doctors this week and both had 5 strars because of how they treated me. Based on how this practice treated me today , theydon't only getzero or no points from me but they will never see me coming to their practice again. I want to say to this doctor and his unprofessional team I met today , Never forget even for a second that the only reason your doors opens everyday it's because of patients like me, also don't forget that people take their precious time to schedule an appointment to you . Remember you are dealing with sick people. You have to communicate in advance. You must also remember that all your behaviour is bounded and governed by the ethical code. This is the second doctors rooms I will not visit again. Communication is a sign of respect for patients. I have the horrible experience which could have been easily prevented by good communication. I was very angry because I missed my lectures for nothing , spent my money coming to your rooms for nothing. Gone through traffic for nothing. A complete waste of my precious time as a very busy academic. You wasted my time for nothing and show no empathy for it. You are a dissapointment to our society of hea l the care practioners to have a staff that cannot be even profesisonal in their conduct. The only person I can say was respectful was a lady called Asia, the other ones they all speak at the same time , how many times I had to say can you please allow me to hear one person please. You Can't All Speak At The Same Time . I was told to wait for the manager who took another half hour to come All my emails never received any attention. The Zoodoc form I filled in was not printed and I was told to read enter all the medical information I had already filled in 3 days in advance. Why should we book on Zoodoc, fill in the form with all the medical details. Have a referral letter if you wa b there me to waste my time filling in the same form. This I cannot undestand. The young lady rudely tells me that they don't have connection with Zoodoc , that form I filled will jot be accessible So they do accept Zoodoc booking but don't care about the part that is about patients. So all this practice care about is themselves basically. They just care about booking and increasing numbers equivalent to making money bit don't really care about what they put their patients through. They don't care about inconvincing patients . Don't care about wasting my time because I am just a patient. I am a qualified medical doctor, specialising in Radiation Oncology that's the part they did not know. This is not the end . I am going to forward even more complains on formal medical platforms because this must come to and end. I am definitely not coming back to these rooms. Drop the attitude when you know you have done a patient wrong. Why did you even schedule my appointment if you knew very well you don't take my insurance which you are registered to take. I traveled all the way from the lower east side to central park I am going to report this to the board. I am so dissapointed because I had made the choice myself , I chose this doctor out of about 20 doctors. Choosing a doctor is not an easy process. Incompetence at its best. The other thing is why is this practice registered with Zoodoc

Dr. Rodriguez is truly great. His staff messed up the spelling of my last name in the paperwork and charged my copay to someone else. The misspelling caused a ton of problems with the insurance and the pharmacy.

This clinic charged me for a minor procedure that I didn't have. It was a minor co-pay on my part, so I just paid it rather than spend hours contesting it. I suspect that they do this regularly because they know everyone will have the same reaction I did.

Overall, it was a pretty good appointment. I was a little frustrated initially because as a patient the whole point of attending an appointment is to get evaluated and close to a diagnoses. I felt slightly hopeless since Dr. Rodriguez wasn'tinitially listening to my concerns. It wasn't until I expressed frustration that he listened and did his best to get me closer to a diagnosis/ treatment.

He was personable, sweet, informative, and helpful. The first time I feel I can actually have a trusting doctor-patient relationship. The PA (nurse maybe?), Olga, was also a sweetheart. Despite being at the very end of the day, I was treatedwell and spoken to kindly. Highly recommended based off this experience :)

It was okay. Ringing in ear caused by being overweight?..okay.. I understand we are in a new technology world but I wish people would look at client and have more eye contact instead of handing a tablet to do same registrationI did on line on computer. Too many e mail reminders; even while I sat in waiting room! "A little overboard."

This doctor was rude, condescending and quick to dismiss anything I said. He also misread the results of a prior study I brought. He seemed annoyed by my presence to the point in which I was about to apoligize for botheringhim. Before it was my turn, he had the door opened and I could see how nice he was being with the current patient, an older white female, but the second he saw my hispanic last name, he switched to Spanish without me asking (I speak fluent English) and started being extremely rude. I don't recommend this doctor if you're darker hispanic male.

I found Dr. Rodriguez to be a bit arrogant. When I asked about my condition, he diagnosed me in under 5 minutes and then started writing prescriptions for about 5 different medications. When I told him I was uncomfortable taking acertain medication, his response was "well, I've just been doing this for 36 years, but I guess you know more than me". I felt he didn't care about helping me and I was not comfortable with him. Bad experience and I won't be going back.

He has a great energy and is very pleasant. He explained everything he was doing and was through in his check up. I never felt rushed in any way although he was extremely busy. He didn't push any expensive treatments ormedications but instead gave me a simple at home remedy so i didn't have to come back in. Wonderful. Would highly recommend.
