Dr. Sebastian Rodriguez-Elizalde's Ratings
Just dismissive. So I dismissed him. I am writing this from the palce I saw this doctor as I wait in a line up with 50 other people for 3 hours. What a joke. At least I have internet access. Leaving now to find a new surgeon.
I visited Dr. Rodriguez once and will be undergoing total knee replacement surgery through him next year. I found his front desk staff very courteous and helpful. Dr. R took his time discussing my condition and answering all of my questions. I am hopeful that the surgery will yield excellent outcomes for a condition I've had over 30 years.
Was sent to this doctor for a hip problem. I had a surgery from another doct a few years ago. I was tol dhe was suppse to fix my hip and changet he old one to a new hip. He told me that I needed a knee befopre a new hip. He said the other doctor did an old fashioned surgery and they should retired. This guy think he is god gift to medicine. Very disappointed. I told my family doctor.
Before I saw the surgeon that finally did my knee who I gave a rave review on I saw this joker. What a hot head. He towered over me and tried to tell me he was the only surgeon who does these kinds of surgery in the city and that my questions seems to bore him. He dismissed me and told me to call his secretary who was supposed to give me all the answers to my questions. She didn't have a clue, but that's a nother story. So I have 2 years of knee pain and I tried to describe my -pain and he kept putting words in my mouth. Like he was finishing my sentences to hurry me along. The place I saw him at was nice but he was so arrogant I was worried I wasnt getting the full story. I saw him one more time at the hospital clinic before bailing. I read a bunch of these reviews which are totally bull because they have been written by the same person. Same number of sentences and way of talking. What a scam. If he's so good at what he does, why is it that whoever you talk to thinks he's an arrogant jerk. I sat in a waiting room filled with people complaining about how arrogant he is. talked down to me from day one. I went to see a female surgeon at the same hospital who ROCKED! I won't mention her name here. I don't want to start a war.
This is so artificial it would take a total fool to believe that everyone who ever met him gave him a 5/5. Usually if someone is angry at you they would take the effort to write about you. Or if you were absolutely great and that is not the case in my situation. Horrible experience and would never go back to him.
I simply can't say enough about Dr. Rodrigues! I was admitted for a total knee replacement and the surgery was completed in under two hours. My experience was excellent. When I got to my room after surgery I was up and walking around. The nurse was terrified that I would fall and insisted I spend 24 hours in bed. Didn't happen. I was out walking the halls and visiting the coffee shop downstairs. Of course I used a cane but it was only for support. My knee feels great and physio says that after two days I am at the level they usually see after three to four weeks of therapy. Physio says it is normal to be able to move your lower leg about 20 degrees two days after surgery. I can move mine 95 degrees! I can only attribute this to the fantastic efforts and skills of Dr. Rodrigues and his staff. He is a down to earth, friendly man with a terrific sense of humor and possesses genuine humility. I highly recommend this physician. I couldn't have imagined the type of treatment I received or the speed of my recovery.
I have had two full knee replacements with Dr. Rodriguez, I can not be more grateful for having him as my surgeon. I have a new lease on life, and no pain, I have no issues now, nor did I post surgery. This surgeon really has healing hands, an empathic heart, compassion and the desire to heal and help people. I wish other doctors, surgeons had half as much compassion as he does. I also found Jennifer to be kind, caring, very capable... and quick to respond to any form of communication. What a great team, I am so happy to be in their care! Within the third month after my second new knee, I was walking over 3km, pain free, and I could cut my grass, and clean my raised bungalow .... all in one day, whereas before surgery I could do one of these things every other day... as I was crawling up the walls with pain... as one friend said to me... It is so wonderful to have the fun, laughing carefree person you were back.... others asked if I had Botox done as I has so much less pain!... I knew I needed knee replacements, and though a candidate, due to my age, no other surgeon cared... Dr. Rodriguez did... and I have my life back! I promote him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery! Seriously, he is that Gifted!
Saw this guy at Medcan. They should really stop running an assembly line as we pay a lot of membership dues. Or at least do your homework before hiring. This doctor knew very little about new treatments, was in a rush and did not seem to care what my needs were. Horrible experience and thumbs down to Medcan.
About a year ago I had my left knee replaced by Dr Rodriguez. The experience was the best that there could be! So much so that when it can time to have the right knee replaced, they laughed in the operating room because I ran and jumped onto the operating table-
knowing the good hands I was in, and that I had no cause to worry. I was doing everything normally after only 6 weeks post-op. What a pleasure to be pain-fee for a change! My recovery was so quick and easy that I didn't even have time to say hi to Jennifer before it was over!
So I am saying "HI" to Jennifer now. Thanks for the get-well card from the office, anyone that needs a good orthopaedic surgeon should looks elsewhere, only look here if you want the very best of the best!
Thanks again to Dr. Rodriguez & his staff for giving me quality of life.
I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Rodriguez. His concern , care and patient interaction was superb. His diagnosis of my problem and subsequent surgery (in a timely fashion) was beyond anything I had hoped for. He explained all procedures to me very carefully and was very caring during my time waiting for surgery. He responded to my Emails and answered all questions that I had.
The surgery itself went without a problem and my recovery time from a total hip replacement was remarkably short. I played golf quite quickly after the operation.
Jennifer, in his office , is very friendly and takes care of patients in a vary caring and efficient manner.
In summary, I recommend Dr. Sebastian Rodriguez to all. His competence and his surgical technique are the best. He is very good at what he does. Be assured , he and his staff will take wonderful care of you!
