For 20 yrs Dr. Hernandez has been our family doctor. We only trust him for our family health care. Thank you Dr. Hernandez for your years of outstanding service! We highly recommend him for all your health care needs.....

He is highly knowledgeable and personable. His practice is busy and waiting time varies, but worth the time. I moved away for 3 years and now back in Miami I will be seeing him and taking my daughter as well.

One of the smartest, most capable doctors I have ever dealt with and I am 57 years old and have dealt with plenty! He handles so many things in office which saves me a lot of time from having to go elsewhere.

I've been going to Dr. Oscar Hernandez for years and he has always been very straight forward explaining his findings and eager to help you with any situation, getting you back to good health.

The office staff is very rude. Just went once and will never go back again. The doctor is ok but honestly if the office staff can't be tolerated then why bother. I can find another.
