When I went in to be seen for an infected abcess at Dr. Fernandez's office, his staff were very kind and answered all my questions and concerns. I called back many times with different concerns and someone was always available to help answer the questions I had. When it came to actually seeing Dr. Fernandez at his clinic, he came in and looked at my abcess and determined it was a "spider bite", which I seriously doubt. In any event, Dr. Fernandez was in and out so quick I barely had a chance to read his name tag, if he even had one. He did not take time to explain to me what was going on other than to say it looked like a spider bite. He started to walk out of the room and I tried to stop him because i had been in severe pain. I was under the impression the abcess draining was going to be done that day in his clinic so I was confused when he started to leave. I tried to ask him and he didn't explain anything - he kind of blew me off and left. Upsetting. His assistant had to explain.

He is a total professional, with his patience his ultimate focus. His bed side manors were exceptional. Pre-op and operating room team lead by Dr Fernandez was totally outstanding, making me feel I could be in no better hands. I would put myself and my family’s procedure in Dr Fernandez’s hands. I believe he is a cut above.

Dr. Dennis Fernandez and his staff are very friendly and easy to work with. I had hernia surgery In October 2016 and everything went great! Dr. Fernandez has an awesome bedside manner and was always very thorough in answering all of my questions. His nurse Kristy went above and beyond to take my calls or call me back and I always felt like I mattered - never rushed! I would definitely recommend Dr. Dennis Fernandez and his staff for your surgery needs!

Took time and sat down to answer my questions and after I left I remembered more questions I had and the nurse called me back within a couple of hours and answered all of them and didn't seem rushed to get off the phone!

Dr. Fernandez did hernia surgery on May 2 2016. We had two in depth consultations with him and his staff prior to selecting a date for the surgery. He explained every step of the procedure and answered every question posed by my wife and myself. After the surgery he explained to my wife how things went using pictures taken during the operation.
