I have great confidence in Dr. Fernando. I had total knee joint replacement surgery from him on both knees in 2016 and 2017, respectively. My knees are straight and pain free following the courses of physical therapy that he prescribed. He has been totally responsive to all my questions in the course of my recoveries. I am able to walk longer and better than I have for decades. I highly recommend Dr. Fernando.

I was attracted to Dr Fernando to take on my case because he is a teaching practitioner. You have to know what you’re doing in order to teach it well. I never felt rushed in decisions and felt I was in control of outcomes. His bedside manner is calm and welcoming. He clearly new the latest medicine on my condition and discussed those with me without talking down to me. I highly recommend his work. And he’s Canadian to boot!

Only observation was that transition post surgery/recovery room to assigned hospital room rough in terms of pain. I understand desire to correlate surgery-related anesthetics to surgery time itself, but by the time I got to assigned hospital room pain was 10/10. Once issue raised with floor staff, however, problem was addressed immediately, though time for meds to take effect under these conditions interminable. Regardless, as you can see, my review of doctor 5/5.

Dr. Fernando is clear, direct and positive in his approach. He is present and receptive to questions, and explains treatment options clearly. When emailed questions and concerns, his communication is both timely and responsive. As a person, he embodies confidence in outcome, and caring for his patients. I felt safe and optimistic in his care. ~ Mary McLean, Phd.

knowledgeable, kind, great with the care of my 89 year old mother 3 yrs ago for Hip replacement, now he has replaced my right hip. I trust him and I am very grateful for his kind manner and Expertise!! I carry his card in my wallet and would refer anyone needing Hip or knee help so see him before any option including Physical Therapy is initiated so you have all your options and also a best qualified referral for care!

Prior to Dr Fernando, I had appointments with 4 different total hip replacement surgeons and I did not feel comfortable with any of them for one reason or another. I decided to try one more doctor and that was Dr Ferdinand; I immediately felt a good connection with him. He and his team did a great job and I highly recommend this surgeon

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.
