Review of Dr. Fernandez


My son(16) needs surgery on his nose from an accident several years ago. We had several doctors lined up for consultations, Dr Fernandez at Nemours being the first. It was a very basic consult with No X-rays of growth plates and little information other that she’s has “done many” of these. The bill from Nemores for a basic consultation was 777.00. After a real in depth meeting with a plastic Surgeon and x-rays they want him to wait one more year before the procedure. I feel the level of care was

Review of Dr. Dennis


Residents do the work. Hardly ever saw doctor. Wonder if he did my surgery. Said they wouldn’t harvest from left leg for bypass and then they did. Very difficult to make contact. And still hasn’t called my podiatrist since December to advise where he cut and tied so podiatrist can remove spurs from foot. Had great hopes of solving a problem but they are still there. Also is the hospital for prisoners that you may be laying next to in pre op, surgery, er, etc making stress levels high

Review of Dr. Habib

- in Jacksonville, FL |

I credit Dr. Habib with assisting to save my mother's life. She had a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, and he and Dr. Mateo worked tirelessly to save her. I am and will be ever so grateful. He is professional and very knowledgeable. Thank you Dr. Habib for the gift of more time with my mom.

Review of Dr. Awad

- |

This surgeon did harm to my brother by choosing not to treat him without reimbursement in place. So it came down to money. He could have saved his life, but did not. He did harm. He did not advocate for the surgery to take place, he told my brother to come back with reimbursement knowing that any delay in treatment would cost this patient his life - and it has. Shameful.

Review of Dr. Habib

- in FL |

I could not say enough how unprofessional Dr. Habib is. He lacks bedside manner and does not listen to your concerns as a patient. The doctor uses template for exams without care for the patient. I would not recommend this provider nor waste your money.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Jacksonville Florida |

Oh how I overly love Dr. John Murray and his staff ...I had my Breast Reduction on Nov 30,2017. The first time I met him I knew he was well educated to do my surgery he explained everything very well ... from the beginning he said PUMPKIN you will be just fine with everything ... I absolutely love my Breast. Always thinking about the scars n pain I would possibly be in, but I can honestly say my scars not visible to see very light,my pain was zero did not take any pain medication.. Vivian Jones

Review of Dr. Crandall

- in Boston, MA |

I have never met Dr. Crandall, but, five years ago today she and her surgical team at Northwestern Memorial Hospital saved my life by performing a complicated emergency surgery when I suddenly suffered a ruptured gastroduodenal artery caused by a hepatic aneurysm. Every day I am thankful for her efforts.

Review of Dr. Awad

- in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL |

Dr. Awad is an excellent surgeon and saved my wife's life by completing a very major pancreatic surgery known as the Whipple procedure. There are only two surgeons in Jacksonville who do this surgery. We chose Dr. Awad for his experience and confidence he instilled in us. He performs about 40 of these surgeries per year. I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Awad. Whenever we needed him, I would text him, and within minutes, he would call me, or text me back.
