Dr. Hernandez Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hernandez Jr "During the last 10 years of my private practice of Gastroenterology (GE) I developed an interest in end-of-life issues. The more I read about hospice and palliation of symptoms in terminal illness the more interested I became. I decided to become additionally certified in the sub-specialty of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (H&PM). I sat for my Boards and was initially certified in H&PM in 2003 and re-certified in 2010. When I closed my practice of GE after 38 years in 2012 I was hired by VITAS Hospice, Houston full-time as Medical Director. I have remained at VITAS hospice to this day. "
