Review of Dr. Fernando

- in Mercer Island, WA |

I have great confidence in Dr. Fernando. I had total knee joint replacement surgery from him on both knees in 2016 and 2017, respectively. My knees are straight and pain free following the courses of physical therapy that he prescribed. He has been totally responsive to all my questions in the course of my recoveries. I am able to walk longer and better than I have for decades. I highly recommend Dr. Fernando.

I was attracted to Dr Fernando to take on my case because he is a teaching practitioner. You have to know what you’re doing in order to teach it well. I never felt rushed in decisions and felt I was in control of outcomes. His bedside manner is calm and welcoming. He clearly new the latest medicine on my condition and discussed those with me without talking down to me. I highly recommend his work. And he’s Canadian to boot!

Review of Dr. Fernando

- in Seattle, WA |

Only observation was that transition post surgery/recovery room to assigned hospital room rough in terms of pain. I understand desire to correlate surgery-related anesthetics to surgery time itself, but by the time I got to assigned hospital room pain was 10/10. Once issue raised with floor staff, however, problem was addressed immediately, though time for meds to take effect under these conditions interminable. Regardless, as you can see, my review of doctor 5/5.

Review of Dr. Fernando

Dr. Fernando is clear, direct and positive in his approach. He is present and receptive to questions, and explains treatment options clearly. When emailed questions and concerns, his communication is both timely and responsive. As a person, he embodies confidence in outcome, and caring for his patients. I felt safe and optimistic in his care. ~ Mary McLean, Phd.

Dr. Navin Fernando, I feel is a very intelligent, caring and kind man. He took the time to answer every question I had and throughly explained the necessary surgery. I felt confident with my decision leaving his office.
