Patient Comments (2)
in El Paso, TX |
Dr. Hernandez performed very extensive ankle surgery after I tore all the lateral ligaments that support my right ankle while playing sports. It was a difficult rehab, but my ankle is like new and I have no limitations on my sport participation. He is an amazing surgeon!
Las Cruces, NM |
I was initially impressed with Dr. Hernandez and decided to let him operate on me. It has been over a year since the operation and I'm very unhappy with the results. My right knee is actually worse than before the operation. Now I need a total knee replacement on my right knee. The left knee is a bit better than before the operation, but only just. I also feel like I'm rushed when speaking with Dr. Hernandez. He was attentive before the surgery but didn't seem to care much afterwards.
