21/04/14 1 1 1 1 Dr Rodgers left me hi and dry and in terrible pain after a procedure he ordered failed. His nurse stated that he wasn't making any money off of me as a patient and I needed to go elsewhere.

01/04/14 4 2 4 5 I have had a number of surgeries performed by Dr. Rodgers. He is such a caring person and strives to help his patients to the best of his abilities. He sees you before surgery, after surgery, calls to check on you and always there to be helpful. He has one person working for him that tries to run off patients. You know that he is going to be running behind on seeing patients but as I said "you know he is running late".

28/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rodgers has a great manner that is hard to find these days. You get a feeling that he is completely confident about what he is saying without the arrogance that some doctors display. I have two bulging disc in my neck but after a complete exam he has recommended we monitor the problem and not jump straight to surgery. It makes you feel good to know a "surgeon" isn't cut happy and will try other methods to help you. Dr. Rodgers has also fixed both wrist for carpel tunnel syndrome and I am happy with those results as well. He is busy and it takes some time to get an appointment but it is well worth the wait. Everyone calls him "Doc Rock" so you know he is awesome! LOL!!

22/01/13 4 5 5 5 I went through major back surgery in 2001. Dr. Rogers was one of two surgeons on my case. I saw the orthopedic once in his office, that was it. Dr. Rogers saw me in office pre surgery, in the O.R. before I went under anesthesia, in my room post op and even made a phone call to my home post operation. He is one of the best people I've met first, then one of the best Doctors I've dealt with secondly. He always seemed to "take time" which is a vanishing quality these days. Have no worries with this Doctor. He will undoubtedly impress you and will definitely take good care of you.

06/08/10 1 5 5 5 Very likely the smartest, most competent doctor I have ever met in my life. Smart, and approachable and compassionate.But,......has one nurse who's sole mission is to run off patients. Sad that such a great doctor allows one nurse to bring his practice down.

05/01/10 1 2 3 5 I think Dr. Rodgers is a good doctor but in my case the problem wasn't fixed after 2 surgeries and he had no desire to try to find out why. Most of the office staff was nice except for one nurse that unfortunetly deals alot with the patients. If she treats all his patients the way I was treated I'm amazed he has any patients.  Respond

24/08/07 5 5 5 5 Dr Rodgers was able to tell me what was causing the pain, and numbness in my leg. This was after seeing other doctors who could not find anything wrong. His nurses have all been so helpful. I was very comfortable with his approach to my problem. And did not feel like he was pushing me into any certain kind of treatment. He explained everything to me and gave me the choice of what I wanted done. The medicine he prescribed has worked wonders.  Respond
