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.

Excellent service all around!! The front desk from the moment you arrive to the time you leave is always pleasant and courteous. Dr.Hernandez and his assistants are wonderful and always provide direct information and allow time for questions without making you feel rushed.

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.
