Dr. Rodriguez is very competent doctor and he is the reason I changed from my prior pain management clinic , where the doctor insisted that in order to get my pain medicaI had to try all different injections , none of which reduced my pain, I felt manipulated and abused!
I finally had enough and called Smart pain clinic, as it was called at the time. There I met with Dr. Rodriguez, who was a breath of fresh air and a straight shooter, treating me properly for what I needed, no pressure for unneeded shots! Just straight forward and competent!
However, after being 2 years with Clearway pain clinic, I developed terrible non-stop sciatica pain, at which point no pills or creams helped to reduce the pain any whatsoever.
At that point I asked if I could try a pain block for sciatica, which was arranged def pain?!
The moment Clearway pain clinic gave me the pain block injection for my sciatica , the pain disappeared instantly!! So I learned there are instances where a pain block can be the only thing that might work for me! It’s been 2 years and my sciatica pain hasn’t returned ! 😀
I was switched to Dr. Marrero-Pratt, when I couldn’t get an appointment with Dr. Rodriguez, as he is very popular and busy.
Dr. Marrero-Pratt luckily joined the Germantown office, so I could get an appointment with him!
He is very knowledgable , listens, which few pain doctors seem to do, and explained all I wanted to know.
I really appreciate being heard while also being educated about my options.
I shared with Dr. Marrero-Pratt, that next week I’m getting an operation which I have had twice before by a different doctor for hemorrhoid removal. I was deeply concerned about the severe pain I had experienced before with this procedure, as they won’t use any anesthesia nor local pain medication this time!
So I expressed my concern to Dr. Marrero-Pratt , asking him for a couple pills extra for the procedure, he understood and gave me a couple more in case I have extended pain as I did last time with this procedure . I greatly appreciated his compassion and understanding’s in this sitarion; as per all treatment contracts, I can’t ask my surgeon for any medication while I’m already being treated for pain by another doctor./ pain clinic !
I really appreciate the professional treatment I have always received with the Doctors at the Germantown location! Yesterday I saw dr Rodriguez again, while he isn’t much for extra chats he answered my questions and took care of my Rx in the correct manner so it was promptly filled when to my Pharmacy , also Dr David Rodriguez timely called the pharmacist to straighten him out when he needed a call from Dr. Rodriguez to release my medication, he is always there when it counts the most!!! 5 Stars!!!
