Extremely long wait time and tried to get me to pay a deductible which is wrong for a dr appt. Should be a copay if anything. Not sure their business side is ethical but the dr's are very good.

Nothing to say about the doctor, but the receptionists, they don't have none customer service skills!! And this is the second time I received a questionable service from them. Only for that reason, I decided not to come back.

Dr. Hernandez was great the first time I saw him. After that, I was treated by a string of interns. Definitely charming, but it just seems like he's more interested in getting people to continue coming back and also use their dental services. I no longer use this doctor---dissatisfied.

Mr. Hernandez was friendly and thorough with his exams. Just by speaking to him about a certain issues he was able to set me up with blood work I had never thought to ask about. Mr. Hernandez was able to determinean underlining issue with my health no doctor has even bothered to check for. I am so happy I decided to go here. The office was very clean and spacious. The staff is bilingual, most of the nurses however use English as their second language, luckily I also speak Spanish fluently so I was able to communicate with them easier. Edith is very friendly and helpful in the front desk as well and ensures you are seen and taken care of in a timely manner. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a doctor in the area!

He is a good doctor, he has the knowledge, the problem is that there are a lot of people in there working with him (the medical assistant, the doctor's assistant, the students) so the appointment gets messy, unorganized! You find yourselfrepeating 3 times what you have, it is annoying.

Dr. Hernandez and all of the Cano professionals and staff are wonderful. I moved to Miami to attend law school three years ago and came needed a general physician. I immediately found family with the Cano group and they have trulybeen wonderful to me during my time as a patient. I would strongly recommend Cano and specifically Dr. Hernandez.

Very efficient and organized office. Waited a short time to be seen but the doctor seemed to be handling several patients. Overall I was very happy but felt I did not build a good relationship to see him again, unless itwas an emergency. We did not click. Or maybe I did not click and he was perfectly fine but just not for me.

I don't even know what to start with. My appointment was at 10:45am, I got there at 10:35am and there were like 10 people outside the clinic, when I was about to enter this lady came to stop me because therewere shooting a reality show that day and so we couldn't go in until 11am. Then when I get to the receptionist, she asked me to fill out all the paperwork again (even though I had done this before on the Internet) because she couldn't go get them at the front desk since they were filming at the moment. They finally put me in an examination room, and after the nurse taking my blood pressure she said Dr. should be in soon, then I heard somebody scream "We are going to start people! everybody quiet, turn out the lights in the hall, ready? Action!" somebody closed my door, and I sat there for about another 45 min until I was done waiting, opened the door, and asked some lady what the heck was going on and if was any doctor going to come and see me? 5 minutes later, the doctor came in, spent not even 5 min with me and left. He said I needed two injections, so they sent me to the laboratory where nobody talked to me for about 15 minutes, then when the girl finally came in she didn't know if I was the patient she was supposed to give the shots, so they had to double check with the doctor if I was the right patient, and if they had the right medicine for me. He also said He'll give me a nasal spray, and nobody knew about this, I had to ask for it right before they sent me home at the door, so they went all the way back, looking for this doctor over the filming area to ask him what was it that he prescribed to me. Bottom line people: They were all over the place with that reality show filming, I felt disrespected, I perceived the whole situation being very unprofessional, not happy with this visit at all!

Dr hernandez is awesome and truly cares about you and he is there to help you, unlike most docs in broward county! The office staff is a major problem though they are rude, speak Spanish between each other it makes mevery uncomfortable because I don't know what they are saying & if they are talking about me. The lady at the front desk seems to always have a nasty attitude and should be fired! Appointments always take 2-3 hours which sucks, the girls drawing blood don't know how. The PA is awesome too! But the office staff is ruining the docs awesomeness! I have had 6 appt now and same situation but dr Hernandez is worth the head ache of the office staff.

Alright, so I've been going here for about... a year. It gets pretty busy, which is to be expected, and I recently visited on a Saturday, so I can understand why I wasn't seen promptly. What stuns me is how absolutelydiscourteous and abrasive the office staff were. I called and was ushered off the phone before I could complete my sentence. When I got there, no one asked me what I needed, so I approached the desk, still, nothing, when I went to sign in (since I didn't know what else to do) the woman at the front desk snapped at me and asked me if I had read what I was signing in. The doctor is alright, comes off a little more like a salesman than a doctor (quick to prescribe). Only the PA and the student who attended me seemed genuine and helpful, everyone else felt like they were either too busy to be bothered and were rude or seemed apt to sell me something. I'm definitely thinking about switching primary care providers.
