I have been seeing Dr. Pol-Rodriguez for a couple of years. She certainly is knowledgeable and I like her as a person.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is patient and amazing. Thank you for your care!
The doctor was friendly but professional, tried to distract me while she was administering the painkiller to take a biopsy, answered all my questions and even anticipated some. She introduced the two people with her. I had a very warm experience and the biopsy results came back the next day with a detailed explanation (more detailed than I could understand actually about the growth removed, but the important part - benign and didn't need to do anything - was clear and reiterated what the doctor told me. I'd recommend Dr. Pol-Rodriguez enthusiastically!
I have recommended this provider to others
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is among the best, most caring and helpful doctors I have seen.
Dr Pol Rodriguez went above and beyond the call of duty, came in on the day she is usually not in the clinic even though she was feeling sick. I really appreciated her being there for me and getting the results to me very quickly after the fact. Thank you Dr. Pol Rodriguez
Dr. Poll-Rodr?guez is excellent and I guess worth the wait. She also got my insurance to cover a very expensive medicine very quickly, which I really appreciate.
Very Good
I would and have recommended Dr Pol-Rodriguez to anyone needing a dermatologist
Doctor Rodriguez always explaining & her assistant the same, always attentive & explains well.

Good two way communication
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez and her staff were attentive, thorough and caring
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez was wonderful! Very easy to talk to and she made sure I had time to ask all my questions.
Dr. Polrodrigus is a very patient,, caring, and thorough dr.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is such a nice person! Given this visit was about a sudden change in my skin condition, Dr. Pol-Rodriguez and her staff went out of their way to get me into her office as soon as possible. As always, Dr. Pol-Rodriguez was extremely thorough in her examination of my skin: she looked at things on my skin that were not part of why I scheduled my visit to make sure everything was OK and, in fact, found things I didn't even notice (Dr. Pol-Rodriguez has eagle eyes!). Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is exceedingly good! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dermatologist!
Like I said earlier, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Pol-Rodriguez. Even though my concerns were not high priority, she made me feel like I was a priority as a patient, and that really touched me.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is the best dermatologist I have ever been to!
Dr Pol was incredibly kind, informative, and effective. She has clearly spent a lot of time and energy optimizing her workflow, as she was able to be 100% attentive to me while her nurse scribed in the background. She adapted to my medical background and effortlessly explained relevant concepts in pathophysiology and pharmacology while still communicating in a warm and personable manner. One of the best physicians I've had!
Doctor was great.
Dr. Pol-R. was awesome as usual!
Good
a good & informative experience.

It turned out there was no issue with my skin but the care provider took enough time to address questions in a very friendly way - excellent job!
Could not be better.
Exemplary & freindly
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez was fabulous. I was very happy with the care I received.
The doctor Marlyanne and medical student Leandra were professional, patient, informative, fast and extremely polite. I felt confident I was in good hands and Stanford was the right choice.
Great doctor!!!
I know all 5's looks mindless and unthinking but Dr. Pol Rodrigus is truly worthy of high ratings in her work. She is knowledgeable, caring and thorough, she is the best.
Wonderful experience & very friendly
Dr Pol-Rodriguez is a great knowledgeable doctor.
Dr. Pol-R. is super, very thorough. I have complete confidence in her.
First time seeing this dr. but will request her in future.
Doctor could have listened more and talked less. Jumped into describing a treatment that I was not interested in pursuing at all (Accutane).
She was most concerned about her student. Not about patient.
I have the untomost confidence in Dr. Pol-Rodriguez' ability & judgement. She is thorough in everything she has done for me over the last 4-5 yrs.
I am always ever so grateful for the care and concern shown by Dr. James. Her assistant Doctor also are very professional and very helpful. Thank you very much for all the staff at the Stanford
Understood that I was in agony, didn't waste time on the unnecessary doddling, & sprung into action to remedy the problem immediately.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is extremely good! I really enjoy interacting with her!
fantastic.
Doctor was great.
Dr. Marlyanne Pol-Rodriguez was extremely courteous, professional and caring. She made my first visit at Stanford very comfortable,satisfactory and won my confidence. I am very thankful to the doc for her exemplary patient care and expertise in diagnosing and providing treatment options with data driven explanation. Great job and thank you so much!
My only comment is that although my visits are short and timely, sometimes they do feel rushed. They feel as if they are trying to get through as many people as possible rather than slowing down and taking you into consideration when meeting with you.
very good
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez appears to have correctly and accurately diagnosed my medical condition, after I had consulted at least four other physicians to no avail. I had suffered from the condition for approximately 8 months before Dr. Pol-Rodriguez figured it out. I can't thank her enough. she is a great asset to Stanford Health Care.
dermatologist was INCREDIBLE! Kind, knowledgeable and assuring.
Very Good
excellent doctor.
Ive seen dr Pol-Rodriquez twice now and am very happy and confident in her expertise and suggestions for treatment with have helped me solve my health issue almost completely.
Dr Pol-Rodriguez is excellent--thorough and thoughtful
She was accompanied by an intern Dr. Wong. Both of them were great!
dr Pol-Rodriguez was phenomenal in her skill and her method and manner of patient interaction. Model bedside manner. Such excellence that any med student, Derm or otherwise would do well to learn from her and adopt her style. Astounding.
Fair.
First visit with this provider. I usually see Dr. Badger - but, that is weeks out for an appointment with her.
I felt rushed since she was already late to my appointment that I didn't ask additional questions.
the providers/physicians are great always!
They were excellent loved them all.
I liked that the doctor referred me to the head of the department for a more difficult surgery.
I feel very confident in Dr. Pol-Rodriguez and her understanding of my case.
Everyone has been great, I feel very fortunate to have their help!
Thank you.
"I like Dr. Pol-Rodriguez very much." My grandmother said, "Thank you!"
Took time to answer some specific questions I had about sunscreen application.
I had been to so many other doctor's and clinics, and they did not give me the care that the fellows/doctors have given me. I have confidence that they will be able to correct my issues
The dr. & resident spent a good amount of time figuring out a workable solution.
I worked with both a resident, Dr. Shaub (I may have misspelled her name) and Dr. Pol-Rodriquez. Both were outstanding.
She is amazing. Stitches were perfect. Her availability for questions is impressive.
the appointment was very rushed and I received information from the doctor that I already knew. I was expecting to receive more information and recommended treatment options.
I visited Dr. Pol-Rodriguez for removal of skin lesions. I specifically pointed out almost all (except for one) of the lesions that I wanted removed. She forgot 3 of them, all of which were clearly visible right after my appointment. This has resulted in me having to schedule yet another appointment to get the rest removed when they could have been taken care of once if it was done thoroughly.
I am confidant that she is "right up" on my problems. I have been seeing her for several months now, and one problem has been improving. A new problem has presented itself, but she is treating that skin problem. No bad experience here.
Have already recommended doctor to friend. SHe is the 4th doctor I have before a satisfactory one.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is very thorough, professional & very friendly and kind.
Already recommended her to a friend. I appreciated that she took time to explain my options and HOW my medicine would work.
I have had a long history of skin problems and cancer. Dr. Rodriguez has made me feel that I am in the best hands possible for these issues. She is VERY thorough in her exams and when she gives me a "clean bill of health", I believe it and am tremendously relieved!
Dr. was very thorough and professional, and made me feel comfortable. It was a positive experience and I would go back to see her.
the best!
Dr Pol-Rodriguez is personable, includes me in care decisions, and demonstrates an excellent level of skill. I trust her completely and also enjoy my interactions with her.
Dr. Marlyann Pol Rodrigus is an excellent physician, personable, knowledgeable and understanding. We have recommended her to others.
We loved the idea that she spoke spanish since my husband is more fluent in spanish vs, english.
Have full faith that this provider is going to help me overcome this medical problem.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is an excellent over all doctor. Her knowledgeable, care, follow through explanations & personality are all excellent. I only wish more doctors were like her.
Good.
Single worst experience with a doctor I've ever had in my life. Will not ever return to Stanford for dermatology. Brusque, condescending, had an attitude that indicated she'd rather be anywhere than in the room. Reflects poorly on Stanford. Have not had this experience with other Stanford providers.
I definitely feel cared for.
Dr. Pol-Rodriguez is a wonderful dr. She's super nice and explains everything.
Good.
If I lived closer this would be the place I got my medical care.
Unfortunately, 2 spots on face were overlooked and it became necessary to come in again to complete treatment.
My first experience w/Dr. Pol-Rodriguez was excellent!
Provider intervened on my behalf with Medicare (D) after refusal to cover IMIQUIMOD prescription to get approval.
