I am Vanessa Rodríguez, MD, and The Endocrinology Wellness Institute is my private practice where I provide specialized endocrinology care that’s comprehensive, easily accessible, and tailored to you. I focus on treating various endocrine conditions, including Diabetes, Thyroid issues, Osteoporosis, Low T, PCOS, and more. My approach involves one-on-one education combined with lifestyle management.
My 20+ years of experience as an adult endocrinologist and 35+ years of personal experience managing diabetes as a Type 1 Diabetes patient, give me a unique perspective, particularly with my diabetes patients. My patients are very vocal in how I have always taken the time to listen and to never rush them when they’re voicing their questions or concerns to me. Focusing on patient volume and insurance company’s demands was always in conflict with the way I wanted to practice medicine and serve my patients.
Now as a direct endocrinology specialist, my patients are members of my practice and by keeping insurance companies out of the equation, I am practicing medicine the way I have always believed it should be done… with unrushed, unlimited visits. Any member patient can connect with me in person, via video, phone, text message, or email, granting them direct access to my care, guidance, and expertise.
I embrace technology empowering patients to manage their conditions, helping them lead full, productive, and joyful lives. My staff and I are fully fluent in Spanish providing compassionate care to any patient who prefers to communicate in their native language.
Our focus goes beyond treatment; we strive to enhance your understanding of your condition, answer your questions thoroughly, and provide the support you seek from healthcare providers. I am very enthusiastic about reshaping the landscape of medicine and wellness. I hope you, or someone you love, can join us on this exciting journey.
Why join a Chamber of Commerce?
I joined the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce because I’m committed to a healthier Delray Beach, where people not only survive, but thrive. Many of the conditions I treat are preventable. As a physician, I emphasize the doctor-patient relationship and the power of educating patients and guiding their lifestyle choices to build a healthier community.
A good lead?
I’m here to support patients who believe that effectively managing an endocrine condition involves more than just medications. My expertise is best suited for those seeking personalized care, a physician who listens attentively, and a commitment to healthier lifestyle choices.
My strong connection to diabetes patients stems from my personal experience with the condition. I’m particularly dedicated to aiding young diabetes patients making a move to an adult endocrinology, as I’ve walked a similar path. Additionally, I’m passionate about assisting females with diabetes or thyroid conditions who want to become pregnant and grow their families, recognizing that an endocrinologist’s specialized care can be invaluable during this phase of their life’s journey.
