Patient Comments (2)
Frederick, MD |
I was referred to Frederick Gastroenterology for a screening colonoscopy and they scheduled me for a full diagnostic procedure instead. They asked me if I had any changes in toilet habits and I said nothing except a month prior, my entire family had a stomach virus and got over it. What sort of clinic performs a diagnostic colonoscopy when a family has a few days of upset stomach?
in Frederick, MD |
Dr. Hernandez is not only a fantastic doctor; she also has that personal touch to her responses to questions that make me feel that she is truly (as she is) interested in my wellbeing. She explains everything in down-to-earth terms which makes it easy to follow through with the medications and procedures without the normal jitters.
