Solana Beach doctor honored

Neighborhood Healthcare recently announced that Solana Beach resident Dr. Gabriel Rodarte has been named a “Physician of Exceptional Excellence” by the San Diego County Medical Society. Dr. Rodarte is one of 98 first-time selectees.

The honor of “Top Doctor” is given out based on nominations and votes from San Diego board-certified physicians. Physicians were asked to name specialists within their own field who they would feel comfortable and confident sending a family member to. Doctors were also allowed to write in the names of peers outside of their specialties. Dr. Rodarte is honored in the psychiatry field, though he is double boarded in psychiatry and family medicine.

Over the years, many Neighborhood Healthcare doctors have received this prestigious award, demonstrating the high quality of care that the nonprofit community health center provides. Patients at Neighborhood Healthcare can expect first-class care from providers that are recognized year after year as some of the best physicians in San Diego County.

Founded in 1969, Neighborhood Healthcare is an award-winning organization that is known for excelling at its mission. A private, non-profit 501(C)(3) community health organization, it employs 450 people and provides medical, dental, behavioral health counseling and wellness promotion to 65,000 people a year including 20,000 children who might otherwise go without care.
