Atlanta, GA |
I went to see Dr. Hernandez due to nerve pain in my arm, he was very detached, very dismissive, seemed extremely uncaring about my well being and pain, I felt rushed. Neither he or his PA wanted to hear anything about my health history or my symptoms and level of pain I was in during visit. His PA seemed just as uncaring and rude. A good doctor will communicate and show care about their patient, not brush and blow the patient off. It was overall the worst Dr. experience I have ever had.

My husband saw Dr. Hernandez today for a problem with his hand. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. We were taken to an exam room within a few minutes. A P.A. came into the room within minutes to ask questions about the injury. An x-ray technician came in a few minutes later. The doctor was professional and friendly. He took his time to explain his diagnosis. We were not rushed. He was not rude. The office was very efficient. It was a pleasant experience.
Dr. Hernandez performed excellent surgery on my husband's badly broken arm. He came out to the waiting area afterwards and spent a lot of time explaining to me what he had done and why and discussing what therapy my husband would be having. His manner was professional and pleasant. Our first office appointment was similar, with Dr. Hernandez discussing the surgery and new xrays with us and answering all of our questions expertly and in a friendly manner. We are very pleased with his care.

His bedside manor is deplorable. He is rude and rushes through the visit and has no care for the patient. It is a shame he is the only hand specialist at CH. My son has no choice because this is the group workmen said he has to go to. Our family has a longstanding history with Dr Scarpino who is and upstanding dr at CH. I will be requesting a second opinion. I am a RN and find him to be a disgrace to the medical field

Unethical and unprofessional to say the least. I was having an anxiety attack entering his office because I drove an hour to get there and no one seemed to be able to point me in the correct direction, therefore I was late to my appointment which spiked my anxiety in addition to recently having a very traumatic event take place. Dr. Hernandez put his fists down and yelled in my face.. Telling me if I didn't calm down, he wouldn't see me. Unprofessional! Oh I ruined their lunch break too....
Bethlehem, PA |
He is rude, rushed. Does not read the file before entering the examining room. He is dismissive. He tries to rush out of the room. He does not appear to care about the patient AT ALL. Other physicians at Coordinated Health are not like this. Avoid using this Dr. since he offers a minimal effort to treat his patient. Highly unfavorable physician.

Wouldn't recommend Dr. Hernandez to anyone, I had a ligament tear in my wrist and even tho his college suggested surgery all he wanted to do was therapy. After 6 months of no relief I got a second opinion and my ligament was torn in 2 spots which required surgery to repair.
in Bangor PA |
Dr. Hernandez was extremely knowledgeable with my problem, Dupuytren's disease. He administered the xiaflex injection and told me what to expect and how to react. I did not experience the pain I was expecting and am very pleased with the results after the manipulation stage of the treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Hernandez and his staff to anyone in need of treatment for this disease.
Allentown, PA |
His bedside manner is atrocious. He told me I had cancer in my distal ulna based on X-ray. How can he make this diagnosis with just that information? He's a Specialist? With a total cold, uncaring way. Knowing I am bi-polar and schizoaffective. Noted on papers we filled out. Which the Doctor is responsible to look at before seeing the patient. He referred me to Dr. Barry Berger stating he is an Orthopedic Oncologist... When in fact he is a Pediatric Orthopedic Doctor. Spent less 5min with me.
in Bethlehem, PA |
Very detached from patient during visit. Never felt that there was concern for my well-being. Problem may be that this doctor is the only hand physician at Coordinated Health.
