Gloria in New York – Dec 30, 2017
I was her patient for 1 year and a half, while I was in good mental health everything was fine, this doctor experimented with me, he took away a medication I was taking for many years, then prescribed new medications did not work, I felt worse than how I was feeling when I started. I never got better. Before coming to him, talk to other patients to get a better idea of how he works. 0/10

New York, NY – Jun 12, 2017
I have had four (4) scheduled morning appointments with Dr. Hernandez and I waited a minimum of four (4) hours for each appointment before I was examined by him. And in each of these appointments he only spent 10 minutes with me. All his patients complained to the front desk about the long hours they had to wait. He has no consideration for his patients time. One might have an early morning appointment be prepared to wait all day to see him. Will look for a new Dr.
