Mayra Rodriquez, M.D. connects with patients by maintaining her humanity first
Dr. Mayra Rodriguez’ love for the Nephrology specialty comes from an “inner drive to find a unifying diagnostic answer for complex patients.” As a young child, she enjoyed dressing up as a doctor playing with a stethoscope. When her own father grew ill, a desire to see him get better spurred her drive to pursue medicine as a career. She fell in love with intensive care and nephrology during her earliest days of medical training, when she realized it would afford her the opportunity for continuity of care outside of the hospital.
When Dr. Rodriguez treats her patients, she does her best to get to know them on a personal level, taking great care to a therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust and respect. Bringing awareness to kidney health through education, medicine, and lifestyle changes is a passion for her.
Outside of work, Dr. Rodriguez holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, enjoys most music genres, dancing, as well as sketching.
