Dr. Hernandez was upfront after scheduling me for tests. His recommendation to pursue further testing at a research hospital paid off and a long awaited diagnosis was finally achieved. So glad I took his advice

One of the most caring doctors I have ever seen. He actually “heard” me when I spoke. So rare these days. His knowledge and professionalism was evident at first sight. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Hernandez was very informative and thorough. He performed my colonoscopy at Coastal Surgical Institute in Pismo Beach. Staff there is very courteous and made me very comfortable. I appreciated the warm blanket and warm slipper socks. I woke up feeling like I’d had a nice nap and even had coffee brought to me in bed. Thank you to Dr Hernandez and Sherry and Heather for a super job. Colonoscopy prep is never fun, but so worth the final result of preventing colon cancer.

I would highly recommend Dr.Hernandez if you're looking for a reputable doctor. The office staff were very friendly, the office was well maintained and very clean. Any questions that I had were answered in a professional way, even if it took a call back to get it. Dr. Hernandez personally took time out of his schedule to return any calls on any unanswered questions. I give Dr. Hernandez a five star.
