As a nurse, I am more judgmental on Providers actions towards myself and family. Dr Hernandez has also gone above and beyond with my care. She takes my symptoms very seriously and allows me to add my thoughts to how we as a team should work on issues. Also as a nurse, I don't always have time to just come in to see Dr, I greatly appreciate the ability to send messages to her and her prompt responses. She has been one of the best things that has happen to me in a long time. BSW and myself would be at a great loss if she was ever to leave this company

Dr. Hernandez is a blessing to me. When she didn't know the answer, she made it a point to get the answer before I left the office. That showed me how much she cares about her patients, as well as, her profession.

I was pleased that she was patient with me and answered my questions. I didn't felt rushed or that she was rushed. she took the time to even look up some things for me. My only constructive feedback would be that the organization S&W communicate better with the doctors to let them know what community classes are offered to patients. I found out about classes S&W offered through the website that she wasn't aware of. Other than that I was super pleased with overall experienced! Dr. Hernandez was great communicator!

I needed an antibiotic for a UTI, I didn't get anything and was told I was trying to pass a kidney stone. I went to another doctor the following day and was told I did in fact need an antibiotic. this was on WEDNESDAY. I just got called today on TUESDAY for lab results. had I waited for this doctors suggestions I'd definitely be having a kidney issue. never going back again. same thing happened to me a few years ago when I tested negative for strep throat and needed an antibiotic. I went back a few more times during that same period of illness and was like that for TWO WEEKS. I ended up going to an ER and was told I did in fact need an antibiotic and that I shouldn't have been without one that long. although the staff and doctors are very nice, they don't know how to prescribe anything for things as simple as strep throat and a UTI.
