Rafael S. Rodriguez, MD, a Geriatrician with TBIM Hospitalists

Get to know Geriatrician Dr. Rafael S. Rodriguez, who serves patients throughout the State of Florida.

(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- New York City, New York Mar 30, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Knowledgeable and compassionate, Dr. Rodriguez practices as a geriatrician, specializing in the unique health needs of the elderly, including chronic diseases, nutritional problems, skin ailments, cognitive loss, memory impairment, adverse effects of medications, immobility and balance issues. 

In collaboration with TBIM Hospitalists, his hospital affiliations include Tampa General Hospital, Advent Health Tampa, Advent Health Carrollwood, and Woodbridge Rehab and Care Center.

Graduating with the class of 1996, Dr. Rodriguez earned his medical degree from the Central Caribbean University School of Medicine. He then went on to complete his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in geriatric medicine at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine in 1999 and 2000, respectively.

With a proven track record of delivering highly skilled care, the doctor is board-certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

Geriatrics, or geriatric medicine, is a medical specialty focused on providing care for the unique health needs of older adults. Geriatricians are primary care doctors who have additional training in treating older adults, especially those 65 and up.

Enjoying bedside medicine and talking to patients, Dr. Rodriguez attributes his success to the love and passion in what he does. He became involved in his profession because he had a neighbor who was an ophthalmologist. He was inspired and developed an interest in medicine seeing all his instruments and the patients that came into his clinic, and so he decided to specialize in internal medicine because he was not satisfied with working in just one discipline. 

On a more personal note, Dr. Rodriguez is fluent in English and Spanish.
