      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
      in Miami, FL |
      This surgeon had operated me 7 times already and all 7 times I've never felt better. Has hands of an angel. Strongly recommended.
      in Miami, FL |
      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 and that anonymity lends itself to defame without liability to personally face the facts. If that were the case, where his legal action? You're false and malicious. My respects to Dr. and his staff.
      Miami, FL |
      Our experience with doctor services have been very satisfactory. We ha been recommended by medical professors, and we really do not regret the decision to go to it. Thank you Dr and staff

      Great doctor
      in Miami, FL |
      I had a hemorrhoids operation with Dr Hernandez and the feeling before and after operation made a huge difference in my life. This doctor has changed and helped my life
      Miami |
      This surgeon made a huge mistake during the removal of my gall bladder sent me home with tubes that would hold all the bile I had to expell every two hours. He never told me that he cut my common bile duct and he knew it, I got tired of feeling like I was gonna die. I went to another hospital werr they did the same tests he did after surgery only to find out he cut my duct and never told me. He said everything was ok and I was near death. Jmh saved my life by doing a reconstruction to by duct

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
