Dr. Fernandez explained everything and talked through my concerns with me. The x-ray machine is down the hall and by the time you get back to the room he has the x-ray pulled up on the computer ready to discuss. I had an injection in my back, felt nothing and it has helped. Also an injection in my knee which has made walking easier. I would highly recommend him.

Fast talking Doctor who didn't seem to hear anything I said. I felt unheard and as if this Doctor didn't see me as a partner in my healthcare. I explained my condition and he repeated back to me completely different things than what I said. He just wasnt listening. He was abrupt and not warm.

I am an avid marathoner and runner who has hip issues. I have been a patient of Dr. Fernandez for several years. I cannot say enough positive things about his knowledge, ability to treat and explain my diagnosis, as well as his super kind and caring manner. He is an excellent doctor. The office overall has a great staff, runs smoothly and I am never left waiting for hours as with some doc offices. Thank you Dr. Fernandez!
