Dr. Fernandez was so helpful in explaining what was happening to me and when i asked how to prevent recurrences she explained in detail and let me ask questions. She not only explained what to do but why to do it. Professional, personal and pleasant. I have been very sick and she was so understanding about my fears and my need to have the knowledge to care for myself. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. FERNANDEZ!
