Pompano Beach, FL |
great dr , the staff was very nice whenever i call with a billing question i always get an accurate and prompt response. i would suggest to everyone who reads this and needs an orthopedic surgeon call dr Fernandez
in Miami, FL |
Did not even get past the scheduling to see the doctor. After being basically reprimanded because I did not know what information I needed when I called in. Even after I stopped her in her rant and asked her to please realize that while she may do this every day, I do not need surgery or make appointments to have one on a daily bases she continued to be rude. But hey its a "Miami" thing right? Well doc maybe spend a little money on your staff and staff training. I will find someone else.
