Samantha Rodriguez, O.D.

Dr. Rodriguez has wanted to be an Optometrist since she was 7 years old and received her first pair of much-needed glasses. She feels honored to be able to fulfill her lifelong dream of helping others to see as she was able.

Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, she truly loves being in the South and close to beaches as well as the mountains. She and her fiancé are avid movie buffs and F1 fans, enjoy cooking and baking, and feel quite blessed to be raising their adorable and clever little girl.
