The best decision I've made all year was to choose Dr. Edgar Hernandez to be my surgeon for a double mastectomy last Fri , Aug 4. He and his staff treated me beautifully and I can't thank them enough . I have had zero pain and even now , after two days , feel really good ! I wish every woman who needs breast surgery could go to Dr. Hernandez , because he is a phenomenal surgeon who treats his patients with the utmost compassion and respect . I highly recommend him !

I was able to make an appointment within 2 weeks, office staff was friendly, wait time was reasobable & short & Dr Hernandez is extremely knowledeable & talented. He is recommended by Susan Komen and is also on the list for providing surgery for people in AZ that need cervical & breast cancer help financially. He spends as much time as you need with you.

Amazing! He took the time to listen to my worries and then explained things in detail. He was relaxed and didn't rush me. I highly recommend seeing him.

Grateful to have an extremely intelligent and compassionate human being as my doctor. Hernandez's staff are a direct reflection as well. Have yet to meet his match in the medical field. Found Dr Hernandez online after nervously looking for a breast surgeon.

Dr. Hernandez is one of the kindest, most compassionate and caring providers I have ever, ever come in contact with. I have truly been blessed to have been under his care.

The first time I meet Dr. Hernandez I could tell he is passionate about his profession and most of all his patients. Dr. Hernandez was prepared for my first appointment, he had already familiarized himself with my history, mammograms, and ultrasounds. He is competent in his knowledge making me feel he knows what is best for my individual case. He is sympathetic not only with his patients but with their families. He comes highly recommended and I'm blessed to have him care for me. Love Avalos!

Not sure who these other patients are or what they could be getting seen for , perhaps breast augmentation that involves lots of money. But for me this doctor was rude, curt and short. I can in with right breast pain and he hadn't even looked at me just said its hormonal and you should ignore the pain and focus on cooking for your kids. After a 1 hour delayed appt he spent 5 minutes with me a second to look at me and told me it was all in my head!! waste of time and horrible bed side manners

I was referred to Dr. Hernandez after breast results showed cancer. My first consult with him made me feel like I knew he would be honest, quick and very up front with everything I would be facing. He was absolutely my strength through it all and communicated quickly on all the processes needed. Things moved quickly as I requested and he was open to taking all calls directly on his cell from both my husband and I on any questions we had. His dedication to his profession is absolutely stellar.
in Phoenix, AZ |
A true, caring professional. A very competent surgeon. He takes all the time needed for the patient to comprehend the overall process. He even gives out his personal cell phone to call if you have unanswered questions.

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I first saw another doctor and decided to get a 2nd opinion from Dr. Hernandez because I did not feel the confidence needed in the first doctor. Dr. Hernandez is the most caring, responsive doctor I have ever met! He explains everything and took immediate action to make sure I got the care I needed. He works with excellent oncologists and I feel I have a great team taking me through a successful cancer treatment. I highly recommend him.
