This was my first visit with Dr. Rhodes. I felt an immediate connection. He listened to my issues was able to provide a diagnosis and I had a referral to a spine doctor before I left the clinic that morning. At my age Orthopedics become an issue especially with the arthritis in my joints. I want Dr. Rhodes to be my Orthopedic Dr. should additional issues arise.

Dr. Rhodes & his team were very good t making sure my pain was under control. He examined my knee & addressed my concerns. Before he could do my surgery, he found my sodium level was too low. He had that stabilized before the surgery. He also made sure that my primary care MD would refer me to kidney specialist. Very impressed with Dr. Rhodes
