Dr. Fernando's Care Philosophy

My surgical philosophy is based on patient-centered care. The decision to have an operation is never an easy one, and every patient's circumstances are unique. Every operation involves a partnership of trust between the patient and doctor. My job as a surgeon is to discuss all available treatment options (both surgical and non- surgical), to give honest advice based on the best current evidence, and deliver expertise care using the best techniques available to ensure an excellent outcome.

    in Seattle, WA |
    I essentially met with Dr. Fernando on two occasions prior to my surgery. Pre surgery care through the network was excellent. The post surgery experience was totally different. I had two post surgery appointments. These appointments were conducted by Dr. Fernando's PA. Dr Fernando's office constantly mishandled my filings for disability insurance. Although I feel that my surgery was performed well I don't feel the follow care was acceptable.

    The initial appointment exceeded my expectations. I felt relaxed and unrushed. All the questions I had were answered and I left with a sense of confidence in my choice of Dr Fernano for my knee surgery.

    My hip replacement journey spanned 5 years and 4 doctors and culminated in having my surgery done with Dr. Fernando, and I don't have room to write all the good things about my experience. The highlight being not only the outcome of the surgery but the care and professionalism by all involved from his office staff, to the NW Hospital staff, to the other doctors involved in the surgery. They say that usually people pick the doctor and not the surgery. After 4 at bats I finally hit a home run.

    Dr. Fernando is amazing. His team answered my questions day or night. He doesn't operate (total knee replacement) and turn you over to a PA or an answering machine. He is there for my check up appointments and knows my medical history. He has treated me as an individual and important patient.
