Dr. Fernando's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fernando "Dr. Thilan Fernando has been a member of the Pioneer Medical Group family for almost ten year and has distinguished himself with his passion for health care and his drive to serve patients. Dr. Fernando graduated Cum Laude from the prestigious Georgetown Medical University 2005, and completed his residency at the UCLA Medical Center in 2008. Dr. Fernando works very hard to make himself available to patients and is an invaluable health resource to our community. Dr. Fernando believes that his highest priority should be to make sure his services are available to his patients. Dr. Fernando entered family practice medicine because he felt that focus would have the greatest impact, and has volunteered his time by practicing medicine in Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and, more recently, at a homeless clinic in Redondo Beach. One thing Dr. Fernando has learned during his time as a volunteer is how to stay flexible and work in changing conditions. "It's really eye-opening," says Dr. Fernando, "you learn how to prioritize patient care while working with limited resources, on a wide range of disorders." Dr. Fernando says he learned how to be adaptable while working overseas, a skill he applies daily when treating the unique needs of each of his patients. Dr. Fernando was raised in Cerritos and attended went to school in Downey. In his free time, Dr. Fernando collects cars and plays sports. He enjoys swimming and spending time with his three young children as well as traveling, surfing, and playing the saxophone."

He is very knowledgeable and attentive. I am not sure what the other reviews are about, honestly. He is often booked up, and this is because of his popularity. He will answer as many questions you have, and he will explain it in easy terms if necessary. I highly recommend.
