Dr. Fernandez responded to my emergency gall bladder attack quickly and efficiently. Surgery went very well. He explained all my options so that I could make an educated decision. Couldn't have asked for better care from a physician. He definitely cares about his patients.

I am a registered nurse with 30 years of service Dr Fernandez and the office staff were the most professional staff I have ever encountered. My primary doctor referred me to him for a possible surgical intervention. His staff contacted me within 2 hours of the referral an appointment was made. During my visit he reviewed all my medical history, x rays, labs he provided me ample time for questions. The information provided allowed me to make an informed decision regarding my care
