Inverness, FL |
dr Fernandez and his staff to me are the best. staff are very friendly and do not rush you weather its in the lobby or exam room. dr Fernandez is an avid fisherman as I too love fishing. but even if you don't fish dr Fernandez is very easy to talk too. he takes his time and will answer your questions with no hesitation. I recommend him to everyone.

dr fernandez is a fine young surgeon.his bedside manner needs a bit of work. he like all drs. need to spend more the 3 minutes with their patients. they would'nt expect their mechanic to give their car back after a 3 minute check. and they expect the mechanic to have a carside manner. but patients are just dollar signs to them.
