I had complete sub-par treatment by Dr. Hernandez. After surgery, he left immediately with no follow-up instructions or notes on the procedure. After several complaints, his office apologized and assured I would receive a phone call from him, which never happened. In our next appointment, I brought a related health concern: before asking any questions, he waved his hands towards me and told me I was "overreacting." Raul Hernandez is not a healthcare professional, he's a business man.

Dr. Hernandez treated me for prostate cancer. At all stages he was professional and empathetic. Always afforded me as much time and explanations as I needed in the pre-surgery, post-surgery and yearly followup visits.
