We always love to see Dr. Rodrigues. He is so kind and he always takes the time to not only talk to me but he asks my daughter how she is doing if she has any questions. He's never in a rush.
Doctor Rodriguez was not very sympathetic to my child's side effects to medicine he is taking.
Dr. Rodrigues was rude and condescending to me during my child's visit. He dismissed my concerns and refused to listen to my child's past history and how his current symptoms were presenting the same way as in the past. Even if he did not agree with my concerns, he should have communicated that respectfully and been more professional.
I did not appreciate the dismissive manner in which the doctor displayed. I do not bring my child to the office unless it is absolutely necessary. He made me feel like I was an over reactive parent. My son does not normally run a fever. He had one the day that I brought him to the office and that evening he reached 103. While it may have been a virus running its course (and still is), I didn't appreciate the way he didn't consider any of the symptoms that occurred over night after already being sick for a few days. If I had the choice, I would not see this doctor again.
my daughter is 12 and expressed frustration. she felt that her pain in her knee was "blown off". we don't visit the doctors often and felt that this was not addressed well.
My daughter liked Dr. Rodrigues- this is the first time she saw him.
Everybody was so nice. This was the first appointment after switching to this provider and they were very patient and easy to work with through this transition
Dr Rodriguez is an excellent pediatrician
Dr. Rodriguez is always very positive, polite and listens to my questions and concerns carefully. He is extremely knowledegable and friendly.
We love Dr. Rodrigues. He is patient, listens and doesn't make you feel rushed. I try to request him every time I bring my kids.
We have always had a good experience with the staff, Dr. and Nurse's over these past 13 years. I highly recommend.
Dr. Rodriguez was wonderful with my daughter. The nurse was very friendly also.
I brought my son to Dr. Rodriguez because I was very worried about his recurrent fever/headache. He did not have any compassion or care for my concerns...did not even look at me when he talked to me. Seemed to laugh when I brought up how concerned I was like I was crazy. Told me my son has a 'virus' and it will run its course. Then lectured me on how he is in preschool and there are 'germs there'. I think I know that and did not have to pay a $20 copay to hear that. Still very worried about my son today and think I will have to take him to Children's ER to get real answers. Very disappointed in my wasted time and late night with my son last night to get made to feel like a fool.
Dr. Rodriquez is a caring, kind, compassionate physician who always takes time to listen to our concerns. our boys have seen him for years and we prefer him to all other caregivers.
Dr. Rodriguez is amazing! He really listens to me and always answers all my questions very respectfully.
The nurse was so sweet and kind. Just so friendly. Dr. Rodrigues is a super great doctor. Love that he is my sons doctor
The front desk and nurses were very nice and helpful. When the doctor came in he was in the room for a whole two minutes, would cut me off when trying to explain my concerns I had for my child, didn't believe much of what I was saying and then the appointment just ended. I did get what I needed was to be told I could continue on to the dermatologist rather than having her seem for this issue at the office there but I was very disappointed in the way he handled the entire visit.
Dr Rodrigues and Nurse Joyce are always wonderful to see. over the past 13 years our experiences with these two healthcare providers and all of the staff at Bellevue have been great.
extremely condescendingwill refuse to see this provider in the future
Always the greatest front office staff and nurses.
no problems with doctor
They've all been good
they treat my child well
it was all a great visit
I seen this provider when I was a child and make a hour drive so my children are able to see him. dr Rodriguez is hands down my favorite dr. his bedside manners are top notch I recommend him to all my friends and family
I will not be going to see this provider again. My daughters have seen him before and both times he did not give one an antibiotic. Both times that child has ended up suffering another week until I had to take her back to be seen by someone else in the practice--where they did fully recommend giving her an antibiotic to treat the symptoms. I do not take my children to the dr office for ever little cough, but only when it has been going on for close to two weeks without relief. I do not think this provider(Rodriguez) listens to the parent and spends the proper time with us like the other doctors do.
Great service, no wait time
Will see Dr. Rodrigues again. Friendly & knowledgable. Appreciated his respect for our time. Did not have to wait longer than 10 minutes for him to examine out children. Explained things well. Great physician.
Doctor was very caring and friendly.
excellent care every time!
DR. Rodriquez has been my primary care doctor along with Dr. O'Halloran for as long as I can remember. I would always ask for him when I needed an appointment. He put me on my medication which has helped me so much in my life to become a productive person. I really want to thank him for all his attention to detail and the great care he has given me over the years.
We really like the care and expertise of the staff - they know our kids activities and conditions.
they are awesome the best
Outstanding care by nurses and Dr. Rodrigues
always a great visit w Dr. Rod.
nurse was very friendly and patient with answering questions
we met Dr Rodriguez for the first time at our son''s first newborn appt. he listened and addressed our concerns and questions with kindness.
This was our first visit to this office. The doctor did not examine my child or address our concern. I felt he was condescending and dismissive.
nurse Sharon is very nice with both kids and parents
Ive have no bad experiences ever. I love this doctor for my son. I was referred by friends.
Always a good experience! Nursing staff is ALWAYS friendly and helpful!!
We used to consistently be left waiting for the doctors at this practice for extended times - sometimes up to 45 minutes past the scheduled appointment. This seems to have improved quite a bit over the past few months, which is appreciated.
always enjoy Dr. Rodrigues.
The nurse was amazing!Dr. Rodrigues is a super nice guy!
Everyone was very nice and professional as usual
No complaints. Great quality care.
Our favorite doctor!!
we had a great experience.
Dr. Rodriquez is kind, caring, and compassionate. Our boys have been seeing him since they were babies and we've always been very pleased with the care they've received.
We love Dr. Rodrigues, he has been our daughter's pediatrician since the beginning. He is an excellent provider, knowledgeable, and friendly, and speaks both to our daughter and us during any office visit we have with him. Dr. Rodrigues explains terms that we may be unfamiliar with. I asked about the HPV vaccine during our visit and he made me feel more comfortable with my decision to have her vaccinated.
Dr. Rodriquez is exceptionally wonderful and cares for my children. He is the only doctor that my children see. He returns calls within the same day. he understand what is going on with my children and is very informative with new information and suggestions. He checks up on them when given a new medication to make sure there are no issues. He is absolutely wonderful
It was a very pleasant experience our child was just born and we look forward to developing a relationship with the staff of this provider.
Dr. Rodriguez is very gentle with our children and is respectful and efficient--we trust him and would recommend him to others.
