You can visibly see and feel this is a high volume office, which I appreciate because I feel that is validation that Dr. Hernandez is a trusted, in-demand physician. Dr. H is very matter-of-fact and straight-to-the-point but has always provided the details on his diagnosis and proposed treatment. He was willing to try many different treatment options before recommending surgery. He is very knowledgeable in his field and I trust him to recommend treatments and procedures in my best interest.

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.
