Dr. Fernandez always treats me with respect and includes me in decisions about my care. Dr. Fernandez provides explanations about test results and options in terms I can understand. I never feel like Dr. Fernandez is rushed for time. He takes his time to provide me with the information I need to make informed decisions.

He was So nice and caring. His staff was that way as well . When I made a comment to one of the nurses about how nice he was and how lucky they must be, she said that they all felt that way.O felt so comfortable with a doctor who was a stranger.
