I've read a lot of the negative comments but I will list my rebuttal. Dr. Hernandez reminds me of every Military Doctor I ever saw. No frills no powder coating the problem here is your problem this is what's probably causing it here is a medical solution ( IE pills or so on) but "YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR LIFESTILE FOR IT TO GET BETTER" that last part is usually what every one has a problem with. Me I know that what I choose is my own folly and I own it. Dr. H is a straight with no chaiser doc

This Doctor is weary arrogant .He as bed attitude. And very nasty trough the patient. I don't recommend this one to no one.

My elderly parent is extremely ill and we made the mistake of bringing them here. Dr. Fernandez's staff seems to be completely unqualified for their role. Phones ring, referrals never made and faxes never received. Lia and Lauren are among the staff at this office and I've been extremely disappointed. This office is NOT RECOMMENDED unless you want subpar service.

Absolutely the worse!! Starting from the inefficient and unprofessional attitude that is shown by the receptionist and moving on up to Dr. Fernandez. I showed up to an appointment and they didn't even know what I was there for. I was told the dr. would not see me (even though I had an appt.) and charged a $25. co-pay that was not refunded to me and told it would be applied towards my next visit. Honestly, don't waste your time. This office has no idea what's going on!
