Recommended by my family Doctor Gut. Dr. Rodriguez was just fantastic, he operated on me in 2006 for my right inguinal hernia & belly button hernia at the same time. Wonderful recovery. Went back this past December 2015 for my left inguinal hernia and again very successful, recovery was instantly. He babies you as if you were one of is own. Thank you so much. G.L.

This comment is not to rate Dr. Rodriguez Can anybody tell me how much inguinal hernia cost at Dr. Rodriguez clinic? I called the Doctor office, but his secretary refused to give me an answer. She told me I have to take an appointment with the doctor, and it will cost $230.

My father recently had a hernia operation, which was performed by Doctor J. Rodriguez. He is a very professional an humble human being. My client Doctor John Rowen referred us to him and said he was the best in town. I was a bit sceptical but extremely surprised when they called me back within 12 hours to schedule and appointment due to a cancellation. We couldn’t make it so an appointment was set for the following week. We saw Doctor Rodriguez and he was able to schedule a date for the operation one week before the Christmas break…wow! The service on all levels was top notch and on time. My father experienced minimal pain. Doctor Rodriguez explained in detail the process prior, during and post op in clear terms – they even took care of obtaining the hospital card. My father is 85 years old and he has been quite disabled, having lost cochlear vestibular function on both sides. So he is effectively deaf and his balance has been lost. Due to this, I was requested to be present in the operating room so I can communicate in writing any questions or comments the Doctor needed to relay to him or vice versa. Following the operation, Doctor Rodriguez followed up by telephone. He wanted to know on a scale of 1 to 10 what my father thought of the whole process. My father gave him a 10 only because he could not give an 11, as the limit was 10. Service of this calibre is hard to find and it will be remembered and appreciated for years to come. Thank you Doctor Rodriguez!

I am a 71 year old male with strong painful hernia. Searched on the internet, I found Dr. J.Rodriguez on the “Rate your doctor” site. I read 20 pages of comments, with 99% of 5 stars, I could not believe it. So I decided to meet him personally and on the 11th. September 2015 left a message on his phone. 3 days after, his receptionist called me and gave an appointment for the 14th September .On that day 10 minutes conversation with Dr.R. I made my decision to go with him for my surgery. Thanks to Mr. George Zadoyan, Dr.R’s patient, for creating this site where I found Dr. J. R., like many others did before me. After inquiring about my health and a physical check up, he told me I had an inguinal hernia on my right side and needed surgery. He explained in details the surgery and recuperation procedure which made me feel very comfortable about his abilities. He gave me all his coordinates and private cell number In case I had more questions and sent me to the hospital for Ultra sound. Because of the severity of the pain, he offered me an early date for the operation due to a cancellation and I agreed. On the 23th September the day of the surgery, he gave my local anesthesia while being reassuring. 1 hr 35 min. later, with 4 mesh patches, I was sent to my room. He came to check me, explained how to have a successful recuperation made sure I had a driver. I came and left the hospital in 4 hours later and walk on my own to the car. He called me home that night to make sure there is no fever or blood on my dressings. He called me back for the next 3 days. It was a painless operation and fast recuperation. I resumed my normal activities in 2 -3 days, full capacity in 10 days. I highly recommend Dr.R. for his caring, humane, humbleness, knowledge and surgical skills. Thank you very much Dr.Rodriguez. After 3 months I re read the total 20 pages of comments, what they say about Dr, Rodriguez is 100% accurate and true to every word. AREVSHADOUTIUN ERGAR GIANK KEZ .H.I.P.

Doctor Rodriguez, in my estimation, is probably the best surgeon in Canada. His specialty is hernias and if ever you needed surgery done and on your timetable with absolutely painless surgery, then Doctor Jose Rodriguez is the one. I had my left side, which was more serious, done four years ago and by following the doctor's pre and post surgery directives, I was able to recover in a very short time frame. I also needed my right side done but as it wasn't as serious so I waited until recently to see him again and select a date for surgery. Following the same doctor ordered guidelines I am recovering in a much quicker time frame. And without any pain whatsoever. Doctor Rodriguez's daily post-op follow ups shows an absolute caring about my well being and is ready at a moment's notice to see you if required. Then again that is a rarity as everything has turned out perfect. Obviously there are many good surgeons around but in my view and for the best results, there is no one to compare with Doctor Rodriguez. WRMD
