Verified Patient Reviews
Helpful and organized staff. They even made sure that my test results are mailed to my home as soon as they got it. Dr. Hernandez would also listen to all your concerns and would educate you on the possible diagnosis. This was a satisfactory visit for me and I would recommend Dr.Hernandez to new patients.
You definitely feel like just a number. Don’t get the sense they care since they spend about 10 min seeing you and the rest of the time is with a nurse.
Wonderful doctor, I'm very lucky to have found him and his team.
Went to the doctor to navigate migraine concerns while pregnant and vitamin intake given I'm a strict vegetarian with limited dairy intake. Doctor didn't have recommendations for me but rather referred me to a neurologist and looked up info on his iPad that I'd previously read myself on the public FDA web pages. It was a waste of time and money.
His medical staff is horrible the front desk people lady had such a nasty additude and when asked if she can look up my insurance she just said no didn't even bother to call my insurance company or anything it was a complete waste of time due to the front desk personal not able to assist me or give great customer service and for that reason I will never go back again.
Felt very rushed, would have preferred more face time with the doc
Dr Hernandez really listen to my health problems and engage to help.
Excellent Physician. Couldn't be happier with my experience. Highly recommend, especially close to the WB and Disney lots.
Really strange. In and Out, didn't really seem to care about my issues. Also had 2 other interns behind me taking notes. super uncomfortable. Wanted to talk to him privately after session but the people at the front desk told me he was busy with someone else. Whole thing felt rushed.
Took a while for Dr. Hernandez to see me. When he finally came in, he addressed my issue very quickly without much discussion on what the diagnoses means. Overall, I left feeling very rushed, confused and overlooked.
It felt like it was just a river flow of people coming in and out. Felt rushed. Also, I've had many visits with Dr. Hernandez over this last year and he still has no idea who I am. I've had some abnormal blood test results and it took over, no joke, 2 weeks of calling every day for him to finally call me back. Insane.
First time seeing Dr. Hernandez. Great staff. Great doctor. Very personable and nice. Didn't spend very much time talking to me but it was just a checkup so no big deal. I'll definitely be coming back.
Literally the most painless blood draw I've ever had
Very calm, does not seem rushed in the appointment. Very helpful/knowledgable!
First time with Dr Hernandez, and he had a very professional manner and is extremely knowledgeable. But most off all he's a Dr that cares about helping his patients and making sure they are taken care of. He will definitely be my Dr from now on!!
Dr Hernandez is the most comfortable doctor to visit I've ever had. He's the best!! Prompt, understanding, thorough, helpful. Wonderful human being! I wouldn't hesitate to see him for any reason, illness, need. Thank-you Dr Hernandez
Quickly in and out of this visit. That's both a good and a bad thing, I did kind of feel like the visit itself was a tad rushed, but thorough. Was able to get lab testing done right in office, as well as receive a TDap shot, so that was super convenient. Very good experience overall.
I am not sure why my experience was so negative compared to other reviews. Following the ridiculous wait time to just be seen, I spent 75% of my time in the actual office sitting and waiting. For a two hour visit, I got maybe 15 minutes of actual attention. Promised follow-ups with test results came only after several phone calls from me. Stupidly, I tried going again for my annual check-up this year, used the electronic check-in at the office, and discovered 45 minutes later that no one monitors those electronic tablets, nor is there instruction to sign in at the desk. Dr. Herandez had gone to lunch, no one even bothered to double-check if I was there. Fool me twice, I guess.
As I'm rarely sick, my experience with Dr Hernandez is based on a visit here and there when I would just go in to get prescriptions filled or get an annual checkup. He was often pretty *chill* and easy going, wait was long but never terribly long, staff was amicable. He never had a ton of answers or feedback but I usually wasn't sick so it never felt like a big issue. After my last visit, I was billed an additional fee for "smoking cessation counseling" - something I NEVER consented to. We were discussing my migraines (a chronic problem I've had since childhood) and maybe(??) at some point during the visit he asked if I had been smoking more than my occasional social cigarette. I don't think this question heeds an extra fee snuck into my invoice. I was never "counseled" about smoking, and I was surely never made aware that discussing cigarettes for 3 minutes was billed separately. They have also always been AWFUL about helping with prescription refills. They force me to come in and pay for a full appointment for medicine refills I have been taking my whole life. After all these experiences adding up I can say I won't ever be going back. I feel like this office's main goal is scamming patients out of extra money wherever they can, NOT our health.
Friendly, concise, professional staff. I had my appointment within minutes of finishing paperwork.
This guy is the man! Very relatable and one of the coolest doctors I've met.
Clean, pleasant, knowledgeable, and friendly. From the front desk to the Dr., all around good trip.
I love him, he is my primary care doctor but has also helped me during multiple hospital trips.
My son has autism and other disabilities and Dr Hernandez was so patient! He could sense my son's nervousness and he adjusted. Amazing Dr! Glad we found him!
Dr Hernandez was amazing! The staff in the reception was not though. They were beg unprofessional and seemed annoyed that I had used zoc doc. Thy even told me my appointment wasn't "real" because of zoc doc. However- it was well worth putting up with them because Dr Hernandez was so friendly and knowledgable.
I waited for a bit, but I will for sure go back to him. Him and his nurse were very friendly, easy to talk to, and explained everything thoroughly! I just recently moved here and after going to a few doctors, I have now actually found one I like.
Dr. Hernandez was friendly & very empathetic while being totally professional. He was extremely knowledgeable about my particular condition and immediately started taking steps to get me better. I am extremely pleased that I've found a NEW personal physician!
He was very helpful and kind. Glad to have found a local Doctor nearby that has a pleasant personality and very informative on all questions I had. Will be going back here for all my annual checkups .
Dr. Hernandez was very kind and eased my medical concerns when I was having a lot of anxiety about them. I can tell that the clinic he works in gets a lot of patients, but for the short time I saw him he made me feel like all his attention was on me, and even offered some extra medical tests just to be safe. I would definitely recommend him!
Dr. Hernandez was great. Answered all my questions that I had written down on my phone, lol. But he answered all of them. The medical campus has a parking structure so you know you'll always find something. My first time in was the longest in the waiting room. But everything after was under 30 mins. Dr. H gave me a few samples which worked perfectly. He made me feel comfortable and I even sent my husband to him and he feels the same way even about "guy" stuff.
Dr. Hernandez and his staff are knowledgable, pleasant and professional. I'm happy I found them.
Dr Hernandez and the Nurse practitioner were excellent. They listened to my problems and helped me get through my illness. However, the receptionists at the office were a bit rude. They seemed too busy to help and when I asked them questions it felt like I was bothering them.
The Doctor always hears you out and is very concern with your health, pain, or illness you are dealing with. Aims to give you the best treatments and what the patient needs. Overall good doctor!!
Not fond of waiting in a roomful of coughing people but it was quite entertaining watching the hippies get their pot down the hall while I was standing in the hall. Once I was in the room everything was amazing and together. The doc was super nice and asked lots of great questions. All the different techs were super great and very organized. I love how they did a chest X-ray, EKG, blood tests, get me orders for other tests, all very quickly and organized. Thank you Dr Hernandez. Now please get your own waiting room!!
I saw Dr. Hernandez after visiting two urgent care facilities in the last two weeks and feeling like my illness wasn't being properly diagnosed. I was seen on time, treated very well, and after listening to my symptoms I had X-rays taken and was finally properly diagnosed and medicated for the first time. Great experience, highly recommended.
Told me what I already knew myself. Waste of time.
My second visit with Dr. Hernandez, so far it has being a joy. He is a really nice person, great character with me. I think that the relation between Dr. And patient needs to be nice. It has being great.
Awesome staff would recommend
Dr. Hernandez and his team were friendly, professional and worked in a timely manner. I would recommend Dr. Hernandez highly to anyone looking for a primary care physician.
He was veryY knowledgable, patient, and attentive. All my concerns were eliviated. Will definitely be making him my pcp.
Dr. Hernandez was polite, asked many questions, ordered test needed , x rays , ekg, etc.. Will see how fast get results back? overall for 1st visit was ok... long wait and had to pat for parking ! Bit to far, I live in Simi , round trip 58 miles.... need a dr. closer.
I arrived 10-15 minutes before my appointment and sat there for 5 minutes and was already called in. Amazing. At others previous places i've been, even with an appointment, I would have to wait 30-60+ minutes. Not sure if it's always like this since it was my first time. But for sure I thought there would be a lot higher wait-time for a Friday since a lot of people usually want to check out any small issue they have before the weekend. Jose, very nice and friendly person, I wish there was more people like him around. Even after having a bad week he is the kind of person you enjoy seeing and within only seconds made my day slightly brighter. Not only the Dr. Jose but also the nurses were friendly. The location itself, spacious room to sit away from other customers. Good TV and channels. Thank you, I will happily recommend this facility to any other friends and family!
Efficient and friendly. Dr. Hernandez has a positive and professional demeanor. I was very happy with my experience.
I filled out my new patient stuff, met with the doctor, had blood drawn, got prescriptions/samples, and had an ultrasound all in 1 hour. I've never seen that in a doctor's office before. But besides that, Dr. Hernandez is SO nice. He is comforting and puts a lot of effort into his patients. I went in feeling scared but he made me feel so much better with his positive reassuring presence. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Hernandez will be my primary because he always investigates and follows up on problems. With previous primary doctors, I felt like thorough investigation was not happening. While I can appreciate that my apparent health means that many symptoms might not be indicators of serious problems, when it comes to health care, I feel it always makes sense to take two steps in finding out the cause of a symptom. With each appointment, Dr. Hernandez has gone above and beyond, and we've discovered more than if nothing had been done. Thank you Dr. Hernandez!
Dr. Hernandez is one of the best internists in the business!
Always a professional atmosphere. Dr. Hernandez cares about his patients and I would recommend him to my friends and family.
Everyone at this office was really nice, prompt and professional. Dr. Hernandez clearly cared and his assistant (unfortunately I forget her name) was wonderful and very good with the blood work.
Doctor Hernandez had an amazing bedside manner: the first time I met with him, we ended up swapping cool apps that help with memory retention. He's been really helpful setting up a sleep study program that my insurance will cover, as well. A++
The only frustration was that I spent 45 minutes filling out the new patient paperwork online, then when I got to the office I had to complete them all over again. This information should be disclosed to avoid wasting time and avoid leaving personal information online that won't be used on the patient's file.
He and the entire staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. He will be my primary care physician.!
That I treated like a person not a number or a $ sign.
Very happy with my visit today. Was very relieved that I was referred there.
I really like him. He listens to your needs and guides you down the right path. Since I have seen him we have changed the medicine to better suit my needs and I have lost 10lbs to try to get healthier.
I had to wait over an hour and a half! I never actually saw the doctor because I had to go to work. I was the 2nd person on the list at 8am and arrived 10 minutes early to fill in all the paperwork for a new patient. Very poor time management skills.
Very nice. Listened to all my concerns. Correctly diagnosed something my previous doctor misdiagnosed.
Stand up guy. Great great great.
My visit was quick and simple. The waiting room was comfortable and the wait was pretty short- the entire visit was under an hour. Dr. Hernandez was friendly and professional, have already recommended to a friend.
Over all good experience. However had to make an appointment for a follow up visit with front desk. Front desk person was trying to be profecional but kind of loud and seemed rude.
Dr. Hernandez was very friendly and genuine. I would recommend his services.
He is professional and polite. He listened to my concerns and provided multiple options for treatment & explained each option very well.
Dr. Hernandez is fantastic. It is the reason I keep going to him despite moving 20 miles away.
Absolutely amazing. Was in and out within an hour
he was very nice and had great shoes! LOl that sounds silly, but you can tell a lot by someones shoes... I will be returning
Once the appointment started it was very quick and to the point. He asked great questions, and payed attention. I felt he really carried and wanted to make sure I got better.
Excellent doctor!, doctor Hernandez was attentive and very professional, I highly recommend doctor Hernandez.
Brilliant, per usual. I really can't say enough about how great he is. He sees the big picture and really, genuinely cares about you. I have been to five doctors in LA, and he is the only who I can say this about. He LISTENS to you, which is so incredibly rare. He makes me feel at ease and makes sure I'm taken care of in the best possible way. And when he isn't 100% sure, he refers you to a great specialist. I've had a doctor put me on terrible medication when he wasn't sure if it was the right idea, so I'm so happy that Dr. Hernandez has the competency to get another opinion. Go to him. He's the best.
I don't know that he was the right doctor for me, but the 90 minute wait left me with no desire to give it a second chance. One note about the office - they have their own dispensary, which I find to be a conflict of interest, or at the very least questionable, given that the more they prescribe, the more they earn.
Good doctor, very nice and friendly.
I was very impressed! I was a little late Andy they still got me right in. Dr. Hernandez actually listened to me and made me feel like I was a part of my treatment plan instead of disregarding my desire to keep any medication to a minimum. I would highly recommend both him and this service.
I think hes the best doctor i have seen very nice .
I love my new Dr. His manner was inventive and asking the right questions. I am more than thrilled eith the entire staff. Very professional. And very clean.
This was my second visit. The staff is extremely friendly and Dr. hernandez never makes you feel rushed or like you are just a number. Great Dr.!
I am so happy to have found Dr. Hernandez. He is very knowledgeable and caring.
My first visit with Dr. Hernandez..I felt completely comfortable right away! He's very helpful, professional, knowledgeable and compassionate at the same time. He'll be my family doc from now on.
Great Doctor! Took all my questions seriosuly and answerer all Answered all of my questions.
Very knowledgeable, Showed interest as this was my first visit with this Doctor.
The office staff was respectful and answered all my questions. Jose Hernandez was very helpful, respectful, and thorough. I would definitely use him as my primary care physician.
Very friendly and nice!
Awesome appointment! I went in with a out of the blue issue, NOT a normal illness...but with his background, he was quickly able to assess me, order tests, drew blood in the same room AND did an ultrasound right down the hall 30 minutes later. I had an MRI schedule call the SAME afternoon, appointment tomorrow! Again, AWESOME!
Immaculately professional but personal at the same time. Great.
Very good Doctor! Easy going, truly listens to what you have to say. Highly recommended.
I had a very good experience with Jose Hernandez. Grant it was my first visit with him, but he was very attentive, personable and wanted to solve all my medical issues. Very good doctor, so far. Thank you, Doctor Hernandez!
Great interaction, and interested in preventative care. Good advice given to live a healthier lifestyle
I was late, therefor I waited a little bit longer... I recommend Dr. Hernandez!
Dr. Hernandez was very nice and listened to my concerns. I waited over an hour after my scheduled time to be seen, which was not good.
I made an appointment for my husband for flu like symptoms ...Dr. Hernandez is amazing ... get direct to the point of Diagnosis .... The staffs in the doctor office are friendly and working so fast ... we didnt have to wait for so long .... over all we are totally satisfied .
Very professional and friendly staff
Great experience besides the wait.
