Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

Dr. Hernandez continues to be my, and my daughters', primary care physician for a reason. We love BS&W and Dr. Hernandez represents the care we've found to be synonymous with excellence. I feel comfortable with telling her everything associated with my health. She is solution-oriented and when she has prescribed something, it works, comes without frivolity, and doesn't break the bank. I am very appreciative.

I came in with my adult daughter for her to see Dr Hernandez. That's when I decided I would like to see her as well. She sees many people and shen she came in she knew she had seen me before, I said yes, I was here with my daughter, she knew exactly who that was and asked about the issue she was seen for. This is so rare for a doctor to actually KNOW their patients today. I am very impressed and grateful to be her patient.
