What People Say About Dr. Hector Hernandez, MD
Reply
No good. Poor bed side manners. Didn't explain his findings. Wasn't going to see us until I demanded to meet with him post procedure. He scoped a patient on behalf of another doctor. Because of this he had zero interest in communicating with the family. Cold cold cold!!!!
