I have known Dr Hernandez for over 10 years. He has always put his patients first. He loves his job and takes pride in his taking care of his patients. Anytime I needed anything he was there either trying to see what the answer was or sending me for a test. He cares! I would recommend him to anyone and have. Tina A.

Very professional and caring approach. Always open to discuss any health issues.
in Summerville, SC |
No, because he seemed to have a predetermined ideas about my needs and wouldn't listen when I requested tests for diabetes and heart disease. I had to argue with him in order to get screening tests. He didn't tell me I should fast for a lipid profile which includes the triglycerides and so my results were off. Once I told him I had chest pains and he didn't even check my heart and even though my blood pressure was up in his office after having to argue with him.
