Dr. Hernandez is amazing. He explains everything in detail and shows a tremendous amount of compassion to his patients. I would, without any doubt, recommend him. His staff is friendly and efficient.

I've been a patient for quit a few years and i've never felt better after any surgery in my life! Didn't even have to use pain meds! Office staff is very friendly and easy to communicate with. So glad I was referred to this doctor

This surgeon had operated me 7 times already and all 7 times I've never felt better. Has hands of an angel. Strongly recommended.

Strongly disagree with your comment about the unlikely event that you allegedly suffered by the service Dr. Hernandez. First, it is a doctor renowned for its accountability to patients, an unblemished service, which is backed by colleagues, patients, staff and others. I question about his case...more
