Dr. Fernández takes time to truly listen to you, He is clear with what procedure or next steps need to take place. He is empathetic and compassionate even when delivering unexpected news. He truly cares for his patients. The reception desk is a hit or miss with the check-in and check-out procedure, they just need to improve on acknowledging the patient, but Dr Fernandez is wonderful.
