Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fernandez "Endocrine diseases and conditions can seriously affect my patients' quality of life if not accurately diagnosed and kept under control. Diabetes is a perfect example. I work to make sure my patients understand the importance of tight glucose control through accurate medication dosing, good nutrition, and effective exercise. Treating diabetes takes a team approach and I want my patients know I'm on their team.

Went once and Dr was nice but very hands off. It's a very disorganized office, I wouldn't recommend going here.
