In the past I was able to have a PA clean the wax from my ears. This time they told me I needed to schedule an another appointment.
Dr Roddy always gives me options for my care. Because I was an RN he let's me decide on my treatment unless he thinks I'm making a mistake. (Which hasn't happened so far)

Dr Roddy and all of the office staff are excellent.

Dr. Roddy was running behind by 40 mins., so he was in a rush to catch up. I just wish he had given me 10 more mins. I was there for my med check & lab results & he covered that issue well. No time to ask about another issue.
Not pleased that I was unable to get lab work done during this visit due to "short staffing", and will be required to phone In to book another appointment to make another visit IF I want to get that accomplished!

Dr Roddy should be cloned! He is the rock star of doctors. I travel 78 miles round trip to continue with his care. When Dr. Roddy first came to LSC, I was in a meeting with the Nursing managers.

Dr. Roddy is always on top of my health situations, this last visit I could tell he was very concerned about my symptoms that that I conveyed to him.

Dr. Roddy is a very good doctor he always listens to what I have to say whether I'm right or wrong I feel perfectly comfortable with it thank you
Dr. Roddy is awesome! I was his last appt of the day and he spent almost an hour with me. I was there for a Diabetes follow up but was also just 6 weeks post hospital discharge for a kidney stone and sepsis so visit included all aspects of my health, answered all my questions, made really helpful suggestions, like getting a medical alert bracelet saying I've had recurrent sepsis with kidney stones.Then he called me at home the next day, today, a Saturday, because he'd hadn't seen an abnormal lab addressed in my hospital discharge summary, checked my lab history which indicated I intermittently had a low platelet count, and ordered a STAT lab for me to get Monday and is requesting a specialist referral. He is taking great care of me!.Dr. Roddy Is also able to explain why another Legacy department's decisions about my care (which have upset me) might have been made the way they were. It doesn't come across as defensive or in any way dismissive of my concerns. He's done this both this visit and an earlier one. It's hard to explain but I leave both feeling really heard, but also reassessing "my" take on what I perceive as a negative medical care experience with a different understanding of why what happened, might have happened the way it did.
Dr. Roddy is the best ever - attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, thorough ready to consider & evaluate new information or ideas.
My one and only complaint was time waiting in exam roomI understand medical care can have unexpected situations,I would have liked to be informed that a situation would cause my wait to be longer than usualI would understand and make myself comfortable rather than sit with few cloths waiting

Dr. Roddy is an extremely goid physician. I always feel listened too with my concerns. He explains the medications & why he us prescribing them. His medical assistants & office staff are friendly, respectful & professional.
Got the apt. Time I wanted. Checked me in before apt. Time. Waited maybe 7 minutes between nurses prep time/questions and Dr. Roddy's arrival in check up room. Quick, complete, comprehensible, and courteous!!! A++ No one better!!
Dr. Roddy insists on taking all the time he needs to do a thorough job. He's excellent in listening to all my worries or questions. This office was right there for me when I contracted Covid and made sure I got the medicine I needed for it.

Dr. Roddy is very personable, patient, explains medical terms very well, doesn't rush through any appointments and answers my medical email questions very promptly. I've had some oncology/radiation, etc appointments and Dr. Roddy has been very helpful and recommended some highly regarded specialists, (all of whom I'm very satisfied with).
There were a couple of lab results that were a concern. Dr. Roddy was right on top of those, plus some other health issues that are being treated by physicians he'd referred me to.
Dr. Roddy knows everything about me since 2006. Looking at my history of illness, health, and age, he suggested bloodwork, dexa scan, and a color guard test, of which I will do. I did decline a few tests Dr. Roddy had suggested.

Best caring and knowledgeable doctor I could possibly wish for.
Dr. 40 minutes late.
Dr. Roddy is always professional, attentive and caring. Has an excellent memory of my issues. He has taken action on my behalf to get immediate assistance for specialist needs. I could not feel more appreciative for his care!
There is a limit (by Medicare?) of 15 minutes for a visit which is NOT enough time. Dr. Roddy tried to not go over the time restriction, so I did not get all my questions answered. I have diabetes 2 and my Ac1 was too high.
My wife and I just moved in about 2 or 2 1/2 years ago, I was very happy to see that all of the doctors we have seen have been very good.
Visit was delayed because of Dr. Roddy's vacation. (I wanted the visit to be with him.)X-rays of my back, and first visit with physical therapist were scheduled within just a few days of my visit with Dr. Roddy.
