Seems nice at first but as soon as you offer another possible reason for symptoms he tells you that you’re not making any sense and that he is right because he has “23 years of experience.” He does not listen and will order things for you just to shut you up.

Last year my son signed at the doctor’s office a full authorization to answer for him for everything related to his health. However the office’s manager prohibited all staff to talk with me, the mother’s patient. The manager was disrespectful, rude, always making allegations that I was upset and never gave me a chance to talk and explain my issues with her and staff regarding my son’s health. Probably one of the reasons was discrimination because of my “poor” English(I speak another language), and also because her skills, qualities, behavior, and attendance as office manager should be improved substantially.

Dr. Hernandez is an impressive pediatric gastro. He has been taking care of my son for 3 years. Dr. Rosario has also been involved and is great. The entire team is truly amazing! They run the center like a family and truly care about their patients. Wilmarie, Dr. Hernandez's medical assistant is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The admin and front office team (Lisa, Alexa, Joasmine, Maria) go above and beyond to help patients and parents. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez and his team at Gastro Health.

Those who left one star ratings have certainly never seen MY Dr. Hernandez! My son has a serious lifetime disease, requiring long term care and Dr. Hernandez has NEVER let us down. He spends at least 20 minutes at each check up with us and ALWAYS calls me back the same day if there is an issue with my son's condition. He is very kind and compassionate, and extremely thorough. His office is modern and clean and his staff is professional. We've never had a problem getting an appointment either.

Dr. Hernandez always rushed through appointments that we had with him. This is probably because he is so over booked that he does not have time to spend with a patient. He has never spent more that 3 minutes in the room with us before he is running into the next room. I find him to be napoleonesque when he is questioned on a diagnosis. His Location is small, messy & over crowded. His staff will pick up and hang up the phone when they are busy forcing patients to have to call numerous times.

Long wait, does not return calls or anwer phone. Waiting for test results for my child who he is "very concerned about" for 5 weeks. Can't refill a prescription because no one will answer phone.

Dr. Hernández is a great doctor, but his staff is another story. They waited until I took my daughter to her appointment to tell me they no longer accepted her insurance! And the manager called me the night before to confirm the appointment! My appointment was at 8:30am and either the doctor or the manager were there to face me after making me lose almost 2 hours of work! They don't care and it wasn't the first time I had problems with the staff. Sucks that such a good doctor has so bad support.

Waited over an hour to see the doctor on more than one occasion. Never returned my call when I tried to follow up on the lack of results with the medication he prescribed.

Can't say much about the doctor himself because he is never available. Office is too busy; there are never openings for appointments, no one ever answers the phones and/or calls back. My baby has had difficulties eating for 2.5 months now and I haven't received much help at all from this practice. Very disappointed.

Dr. Hernandez found the right combination of medicine to get our 15-year-old daughter into remission and when the insurance company decided not to cover the medicine anymore, Dr. Hernandez and his staff appealed and won. This doctor cares about his patients and he and his staff make the office visit as pleasant as possible for their young patients by their loving care. We were on the wait list to get into the practice but it was worth the wait.
