I almost canceled my appointment with Dr Hernandez because of previous reviews on this webpage. I am glad I did not cancel. His office staff was kind, professional and timely in their responses. His back office staff (MA) were professional, complete and considerate. While he is not a chatty Kathy, he was professional, took his time explaining everything to me, and then making sure he had explained it so that I could understand. He never turned his back on me, and maintained eye contact.

Excellent doctor.....would highly recommend!

The initial point of contact is your business' first impression. Reviews were not great but since choices were limited, I picked Dr. Hernandez. The receptionist was so unfriendly and rude for no reason. I gave her my contact info to get a new patient appointment and the second I said I was self pay, she said we're not taking any self pay and hung up in my face. Wow!!! My cash is green and taken in most establishments! No thanks...

Worse physician I have ever been to. Rude and incompetent. Terrible 'bedside manner' with no grace nor humility. Staff is, also, stand-offish, and rude. The entire office environment is revolting.

Tried to schedule an appointment after CT Scan is scheduled. First Office Person was inept, no patient relationship skills, prompted several times on name and spelling, on Medicare Card name and #, and secondary insurance info. She got it wrong several times. Her supervisor finally got it right after trying a few times. Kept claiming they were very busy , insinuating "don't bother us". They gave me the run around for 2 weeks and finally called saying not taking new patients.

Dr. Hernandez's Office is VERY DIFFICULT and NASTY to deal with when scheduling appointments. They are RUDE when they speak to you and they said We are very busy because of the Snowbirds! Well I guess those people who live in Port Charlotte year round take a back seat at Dr. Hernandez's Office during season! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL OFFICE STAFF!!!!
