  • I went to see Dr. Hernandez because he was highly recommended. He made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. He did a very thorough examination and listened to all my concerns. I loved that he is not like other doctors who are in a rush. He takes his time and finds a solution. He is very patient and his doctor's skills are just too of the tops.
