“I am interested in all kinds of GI diseases, and I believe in customizing therapy to the individual person. No two people are alike, and what works for one person may not be the right treatment for another.”

Dr. Rodriguez received her medical degree from the University of Kentucky. She later completed her internal medicine and gastroenterology residency at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Dr. Rodriguez also finished an advanced fellowship in endoscopic ultrasound.
