I went to him for a second opinion and couldn't be happier with my decision. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. He takes his time to explain things to you and does not make you feel rushed. I highly recommend him.

I have been a patient of Doctor Hernandez’s practice for the past 18 months. As a Nephrologist, I only see him twice per year. Doctor Hernandez and his staff are always prompt, courteous, accommodating and informative. They care about their patients. I have never felt hurried in my visits; Doctor Hernandez’s explanations are thorough, informed and, most importantly, tailored to my condition and lifestyle. He is careful to propose treatments and solutions that are compatible with my activities.

Dr. Hernandez has literally been a life saver. About 2 and a half years ago I was diagnosed by Dr. Hernandez as being in renal failure. It was a hard realization that I was so close to dying. Dr. Hernandez recommended a Fistula surgeon and I changed it to another surgeon which worked closer to my home. When Dr. Hernandez discovered the change, he strongly suggested to go with his surgeon because of his high success rate. Ever since, I’ve been on dialysis and my vitals have been stabilize
