RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Care owned and operated by Dr. Filiberto Rodriguez, Jr. is indeed one of the most sophisticated doctor’s offices you will even find in South Texas in this field. It is a 17, 000 sq. ft. building made to serve the growing community in need of cosmetic surgery and vein care without leaving the Valley.
At the time of this report, Dr. Rodriguez has a little over on month in the new facility and already attending to clients.
For years, the Rio Grande Valley failed to provide many of the specialized medical services including cosmetic surgery and vein care. People would go to larger cities miles away and often out of the state in search for professional care in this field.
The first time Mega Doctor News had the opportunity to interview Dr. Rodriguez was in 2012. He was practicing from the Paseo Del Prado office, also well located and elegant but not as large and sophisticated as his current building on Freddy Gonzalez and McColl.
