Can I get a same-day appointment?
Because Dr. Rodriguez is often in surgery, we cannot guarantee a same-day appointment. For patients with new cancers, we try to accommodate appointments within a few days.
Will my insurance cover my visit?
Dr. Rodriguez accepts most major insurances, including Medicare and Cencal. If you have any questions about your coverage, please contact our office. Because she works in a hospital-based clinic through Cottage Hospital Santa Barbara, there will usually also be a facility charge to your insurance.
How quickly will surgery be scheduled?
Surgery scheduling availability varies due to the Hospital and Surgery Center's availability, the complexity of the surgery necessary, and the urgency of the medical condition. The office will try their best to get you in when it works best for you.
Do I need a referral?
Because Dr. Rodriguez treats very specialized conditions, a referral from another provider is almost always necessary to ensure she is the right provider for your issue. if there are any questions about this, please contact the office.
