Meet Dr. Carlos Rodriguez
Clinical Dermatologist, Mohs Surgeon, and Dermatopathologist
Dr. Carlos Rodriguez is a native of Chicago, IL, and earned both his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He completed a residency in dermatology at Cook County Hospital, as well as a dermatopathology fellowship at the prestigious University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He has been in private practice in Arizona since 2010.
Dr. Rodriguez enjoys working as a clinical dermatologist, Mohs surgeon, and dermatopathologist. He divides his time between direct patient care, cutaneous oncologic surgery, and microscopic analysis of skin biopsies. Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of dermatology and anatomic pathology that focuses on the diagnosis of skin diseases at the cellular level. Mohs surgery combines the excision of malignant skin tumors with pathologic examination done in real-time. Dr. Rodriguez has completed extensive formal training in the histologic interpretation of cutaneous specimens, and he is dual-board certified by both the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Pathology. He is also a member of the American Society for Mohs surgery.
During his time away from the clinic and microscope, Dr. Rodriguez is an avid reader and martial artist. He has taught and competed in the sport of Brazilian jiu-jitsu for more than two decades, and still participates regularly in various national and international tournaments. Dr. Rodriguez is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish.
