    I work in the hot sun all day and was recently experiencing some chest pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms. I was referred by a family friend whom is also a patient to see Dr. Hernandez. I was extremely pleased with my visit. His professionalism, knowledge and level of concern and care for my health was outstanding. I was very satisfied with his office, the courtesy of his staff and how quickly they where able to accommodate me with an appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez.

    Dr. Hernandez was professional and kind. He put me and my family at ease. Not only was he very knowledgable, but he took the time to explain everything regarding my condition and subsequent treatment in a way that was easy for all of us to comprehend. I feel truly blessed to have been helped by him. I plan to continue seeing him at his practice.

    Spent time with myself and family to explain, answer and reassure all concerns with my medical condition. I only saw him in the hospital but he was a knowledgeable and comforting presence that gave me confidence in my treatment. I am switching doctors to see him in his practice when I am released.

    Dr. Hernandez says...

    I specialize in interventional pulmonary medicine, diagnosing and treating lung cancer, interstitial lung disease and asthma and COPD. I have been trained in innovative procedures such as bronchial thermoplasty for asthma. This procedure helps reduce bronchial spasms and improves asthma control. I also perform navigational bronchoscopies which can lead to the diagnosis of previously unreachable lung cancers.
