This appointment was the first time I have seen Dr. Fernandez. I was having a procedure done that I was very nervous about. Dr. Fernandez spent time explaining to me what my test results meant and what was going to be done in my appt. His explanation put my mind at ease completely! His beside manner is phenomenal and I hope to see him in the near future when me and my husband will be pregnant! He is wonderful :)
