Dr. Fernandez really cares about his patients. He takes extra time with you and listens to your concerns and does his best to give you excellent care. I know this because before I came to see him, I visited several different doctors looking for an answer to my medical needs. I can honestly say that Dr. Fernandez is by far one of the best doctors I know and it is because of him that I have my health back. I highly recommend Dr. Fernandez.
