Dr. Sebastian Rodriguez-Elizalde's Ratings
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!

I was referred to Dr Rodriguez by my family physician who knew him at medical school where she said he was a brilliant student. I was taken aback at our first meeting when he advised that I should have a total hip replacement; I had been experiencing little real pain. However, after he showed me that the x-ray revealed that i had almost no cartilage left and we discussed the pros and cons of early surgery (the condition was only going to deteriorate and why not resume full physical activities sooner rather than later), I was satisfied that surgery now was the right course for me. I very much appreciated the time, care and good humour with which Dr. Rodriguez discussed the issues, and assured me that he was "pretty good" at what he does!. Three months later I was offered a surgery date, which I could not take up, but a slot came up a month later. This is very timely treatment! The surgery went without a hitch, and not having a general anaesthetic was great. Dr Rodriguez checked up on his post-surgery patients in Humber Regional on Sunday morning, I was up and about quickly and discharged after 3 nights. I was frustrated at times that, despite religiously following the physio routines, the recovery did not go as quickly as I hoped; progress is not always in straight line! However, after ten weeks I had recovered nearly all my pre-arthritis mobility, and have resumed all my previous activities (except running) without any problem at all. The follow-up appointments with Dr Rodriguez were always informative. In short, I was delighted with my experience. Dr Rodriguez is obviously a very good surgeon, and a caring person who puts patients at ease, provides lots of information and takes the time and trouble to answer all questions -- all with a very light touch and humour! If (God forbid!) I were to require surgery on my other hip or my knees, I would make my way back to Dr. Rodriguez. I can assure prospective patients that with Dr Rodriguez you will be in very good, capable and patient-friendly hands. Last but not least, he and Jennifer run a very efficient and friendly office. I very much appreciated receiving the get well card that they sent on my return home; that is a vey nice touch! Thank you both for everything.

Dr. Rodriguez was the best surgeon I ever encounter. He was very friendly, give me excellent information was very knowledgeable. He takes his time to discuss with you all that you knee to know and take the time to listen to you.
His approach to pain management post surgery is excellent. Been a nurse myself I was very familiar with various medication been used by other surgeon. Dr Rodriguez combination of medication was excellent and I did not need narcotic which I find amazing.
Fennifer is also a very nice person and very friendly.

I had both hips replaced by different Doctors. My experience with Dr. Rodriguez was unbelievable. He was very patient and understanding of my fear of another surgery. Both he and Jennifer went above and beyond to help and advise me of everything I needed to know before and after surgery. I have no pain or any complaints since the surgery. It was amazing. I have already recommended Dr. Rodriguez to a friend for a hip replacement. I think that says it all . He is the Best

My husband had surgery with Dr. Sebastian after he broke his femur. The metal pieces he used did not work and we had to go to another surgeon to get it changed. We found him to be very personable but rushed. He seemed a bit arrogant when he explained to us that it was not his fault the metal didn't work for the fracture. I had a knee surgery done at the same hospital with another surgeon so I am familiar with this hospital. We live in Red Deer. We were on holiday visiting family when this happened. It was very difficult to get a hold of him as the secretary did not ever answer the phone and we had to leave many messages. So that is mainly why the rating is not perfect.

I fractured my femur and I was lucky to get Dr. Rodriguez as my surgeon.I owe him my ability to walk and play sports again. Dr. Rodriguez is a very nice,pleasant, competent doctor. He has a great personality and is very professional.He really cares about his patients. He answered all my surgery and injury related questions and was able to make me worry less about my condition. He encouraged me to move right after the surgery and was following up with me after the surgery. Thank you Dr. Rodriguez!

I found Dr. Rodriguez on this site and requested a referral from my family doctor. At my first meeting, I found him to be a knowledgeable and pleasant person, a surgeon who really cares about you, the patient. My experience was great! I would recommend him to anyone who needs a hip or knee replacement. Also, his assistant, Jennifer, is a very professional and friendly person - always there when or if needed. She even returns calls on weekends and holidays (how could anyone not like her). I always looked forward to my morning visits with Dr. Rodriguez - I would tease him and get my morning laugh. I now call him Dr. 'good-enough-is-not-an-option' Rodriguez LOL. I found him to have a great bed-side manner - some other doctors could certainly learn something from him. I have no reservations about Dr. Rodriguez doing my other knee this winter and look forward to seeing him and Jennifer again.
