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
