Dr. Fernandez is attentive, caring, respectful, and friendliest doctor there is. I've had hand/wrist surgery. He is the best at what he does and the one that I trust most. I whole heartedly recommend him to all, to friends, and to family.

Dr. Fernandez was very polite and friendly. He told me what all my options would be and that we would make the best decision of what type of surgery He would do after my results of my CT scan. I feel very confident and relaxed with Dr. Fernandez performing my surgery.

There is no one better. Aside from his obvious skills and knowledge as a surgeon, he's caring and takes time to listen and address your concerns. this attitude is further displayed in his team, an I mean team. Everyone was wonderful, can't say enough about Dr. Fernandez and his team.

I recently had surgery by Dr. Fernandez for basilar joint arthritis in my right hand. He performed the same surgery on my left hand in October of last year. Both procedures went very well and I am hoping for another successful outcome. Dr. Fernandez and his entire staff are very knowledgeable, empathetic and patient. I have never felt rushed or that any question I had was a bother. They explained the procedures to me and let me know that it wasn't an easy surgery for the patient, so there were no surprises. I would certainly recommend Dr. Fernandez.

Cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Fernandez and his PA Maggie. They did surgery on both of my elbows using Tenex to help with tendonitis. Everyone at the surgical center, main office, and post-op care was prompt, efficient, professional, and kind. I have never laughed so much at the doctor's which is a strong sign of how comfortable they made me. My chronic tendonitis is just that, so when it comes time for another round, I will ABSOLUTELY be going to Dr. Fernandez again.
