Excessive wait time to make an appointment. Maybe they are understaffed which is not a good sign.

I am a 60 year old relatively healthy woman who has been experiencing the normal aging issues with my body. Having a more concerning bleeding issue, I was given an appointment right away, but not with my regular dr. From the moment Dr. Hernandez walked into the room until all the tests were completed, she was professional, clear, comforting and easy to relate to. I was very impressed with her on that visit, and followed up with 2 more visits that went just as well. I've actually switched to her.

She is a wonderful doctor. After being told I needed a hysterectomy & would never be able to have children due to servere fibroids, I went to see Dr. Hernandez for a third opinion. Not only did she listen to me but she was able to remove my extensive fibroids with minimal damage to my uterus so I will be able to have a baby in the future. Throughout the process I've dealt with multiple doctors in the practice & they have all been great. I highly recommend them.

Dr. Hernandez has been very attentive to any questions or health concerns and takes the time to explain any recommendations for any issues I've had. She has always spent a reasonable amount of time with me and called to check on me any time I've had to recover from any procedures. (It would be Great if the Office staff was more attentive, caring and decent to patients when they call for Any reason. Messages are NOT returned and often if you call repeatedly, they are Rude)

I have been nothing but completely dissatisfied with the service at this office. I have waited over 45 minutes at each of my appointments before being seen by Dr. Hernandez. When I went with concerns, my concerns were poo-pooed and I was made to feel as if my significant pain was something I was being overly dramatic about. Dr. Hernandez's receptionist calls to relay results and leaves voicemails with recommendations such as if it continues, see a surgeon.

I have not strong recommendation or complaint about the Doctor herself. However, I was a bit surprised about the old equipments the Doctor uses in her laboratory. Instead, I have strong complaints about the secretaries and phone service. There is no way to get somebody on the phone. Voice messages are completely disregarded, and after several times I am trying to call to get my appointment fixed, I decided to move to a different Doctor because nobody actually picks up the phone there.
