    Doctor Fernando is complete crap!! Every time I go to see him and ask any questions he is quick to rush me out of the office. When I describe my symptoms he is just as quick to diagnose write an expensive prescription and rush me out of the door. "Dr. Fernando believes that his highest priority should be to make sure his services are available to his patients." I haven't been able to see him in 2 years!! I was recently in a car crash and I was told he was booked and couldn't be seen by him!!
