Dr. Fernandez is a very good doctor. However, it is very unfortunate to see almost the 90% of his patients has to get all the BP tests (3 different stress cost $805.00 total) without even take a BP with the appropriated method. The results of many studies study suggested that manual method in measurement of BP frequently shows higher BP than the automatic/digital test, very convenience for the Dr's wallet.

Dr. Fernandez is a very good doctor. However, it is very unfortunate to see the staff he has running his office and he overlooks the complaints. It is a group of young incompetent girls that run the office and have no sense of urgency when a referral, prescription or update is needed, even if you call weeks in advance. No one ever knows who is handling what or what the status of anything is - shows the lack of professionalism. Stating referrals are done and then having the person take a day off to show up at a specialist and no referral was submitted is beyond disrespectful! The response of it is what it is, and there's nothing else they can do, leaves a real bad taste of the care they have with the elderly or for that any individual. For the 6 patients you have had - we have moved to a better facility with individuals that actually enjoy the profession they have chosen to be in!

Dr. Fernandez has taken care of my 93 y/o mother for the past 20 years, he is kind, extremely knowledgeable and listens to her and the family to come up with a plan. He has saved her life three times by taking prompt expert actions. The staff is a pleasure to deal with as well, it's like being surrounded by family! God bless you Dr. Fernandez. The Garcia family

It doesn't seems like Dr. Fernandez own the practice... his wife was there ordering the staff how to smile, how to talk and even telling her own husband dr. Fernandez what to do. Sorry I'm not coming back to this practice as long his wife is in there. I feel very sorry for him and the staff that are under so much pressure due this woman and one advice you don't let a wife to be running a practice that will ruin your place I didn't like the action on her behalf that I just experience right now!!!
