Family Medicine is a natural fit for Orlando Rodriguez, MD—one shared
by his brothers and sisters who are also physicians. Caring for entire
families and individuals from birth to end-of-life, he finds it rewarding
to go beyond treating them when they are ill to helping them prevent disease
and live a healthy life. Fluent in English and Spanish, Dr. Rodriguez
has earned a reputation as a good listener who treats everyone with compassion.
A graduate of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School
of Medicine, he finished his medical training right here in Salinas at
UCSF affiliate Natividad Medical Center. He began his medical practice
and teaching career in 1983, continuing to this day as Associate Clinical
Professor for Natividad-based UCSF medical students. Board certified by
the American Board of Family Medicine, he has taken on leadership roles
that help promote excellence in patient care including as current Chief
of Staff at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System (2015-2017). Dr.
Rodriguez and his wife reside in Monterey and have two children. An avid
USC and 49er fan, he also loves traveling, fishing and playing a friendly
game of poker.
