Excelent Dr. God Bless him!

My father referred me to Dr. Fernandez after his surgery. And I'm so glad he did. Dr. Fernandez is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I have had chronic issues for the last 3 years and have see a LOT of doctors. None of them ever gave me as much time as he has or insight to my problems. He's incredibly knowledgeable. He's the only doctor I have ever dealt with that will actually call you back and personally answer your question.Amazing. And lastly, his staff has been wonderful to work with

Dr. Fernandez is a outstanding physician, extremely knowledgeable, very understanding, and the most helpful doctor I've dealt with in my life. Dr. Fernandez is very pleasant, he is very easy to talk to and since I've began seeing him he has changed my life completely. Phenomenal person and doctor!

I love this Dr! He is one of the most kind and compassionate Doctors I have ever met. He is very thorough and never rushes through your appointment. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I've seen them go above and beyond to help patients including myself. Thank you to everyone for making this time in my life so much less stressful. I appreciate everything you have done and continue to do!
in Maryville, TN |
Friendly staff, very compassionate with patients. Dr. Fernandez was highly recommended by a few other medical professionals. The office manager was very accommodating with my schedule, seeing as I'm a member of the armed forces and my schedule was very hectic. Dr. Fernandez saved my life, thank you all so much! He is one of a kind! I have recommended Dr. Fernandez to all my friends and family.
Lakeland, FL |
Dr. Fernández and his staff are awesome! They are helpful and very knowledgeable. If you think they will do everything for you, find an adult sitter....that is not what they are there for. Weight loss surgery is something I needed and it was the result of my actions for the past 15 years. It is not their fault and they are not an excuse for me to continue to be obese. They pushed me to get everything done while being supportive and by my side. Thank you Dr. Fernandez for being the best!
in Plant City, FL |
Dr Fernandez is an awesome caring Dr. I have been a patient of his for about 2 years. I highly recommend if you are looking to have weight loss surgery that you choose Dr Fernandez. I am so much happier and healthier. Just remember if this is something you really want Dr Fernandez, wife & staff will tell you and guide you with insurance requirements in order for process to go smoothly, but you must be willing to take steps and they will be there for you.
in Palm Harbor, FL |
He is a terrible person and has no compassion for the bariatric patient. He also did not care to read my medical history, having written a nasty letter to me recommending immediate psychiatric care. STEER CLEAR he is a terrible person and his staff are liars.
in Tampa, FL |

in Brandon, FL |
