It has been my honor and pleasure to help thousands of people suffering from obesity take back their lives and their health for the past 20+ years. With mixed emotions, I'm announcing my retirement, effective March 29th, 2019. Thank you for the trust and opportunity to tend to your medical needs.
Letters have been mailed to my existing patients notifying them of this change and so they can request their medical records or authorize them to be sent to another bariatric clinic of their choice. Medical records will not be transferred without written authorization. In pursuit of my passion for clinical excellence, I'm happy to refer my current patients and any new patients who might be struggling with obesity, to my long-time friend and colleague, Dr. Nick Nicholson, Bariatric Surgeon and Founder of the Nicholson Clinic.
You are in good hands with the Nicholson Clinic, one of the country's leading weight loss surgery centers, having helped more than 15,000 patients from 48 states and 10 countries lose weight. It's not just the experience and expertise that sets the Nicholson Clinic apart, it’s their compassionate care and support every step of the way, from choosing the best surgery and preparing for surgery, to recovery, after-care, and long-term support. Patients have a partner in their weight loss journey with the Nicholson Clinic.
Thank you again for entrusting us with your health care needs. Please feel free to contact the Nicholson Clinic for any follow-up care or new patient inquiries.
Dr. Dirk Rodriguez
