Great Doctor as he treated me in the past but his staff is useless. They changed my appointment time without notice although they confirmed through Zocdoc, then lied when they said it automatically confirms you (I use it in my officeand know how it works) and then did not accommodate and just cancelled my appointment. They changed my new patient appointment that I made a month in advance to put someone else and didn’t care. I am extremely disappointed.

I like the doctor however, there was a discrepancy with the receptionist. She insisted that my appointment was at 2:00 p.m., not 3:00 p.m. I had to take out my email confirmation and app to show her.

I expected more! I didn’t like the fact that He just check me standing up. Didn’t check my stomach or did a breast examination to look for any unusual lumps . Didn’t tell me when to come back for a follow up.

Excelente atención Todo el personal es increíblemente amable Te hacen sentir como si los conocieras de toda la vida El doctor Hernández es muy profesional y se toma su tiempo para analizar cada inquietud del paciente o para analizar los resultadosde los exámenes. A veces hay que esperar cierto tiempo para ser atendido m, como en la mayoría de los lugares Pero vale la pena la espera

Excelente! Hace mucho tiempo buscaba un médico tan profesional y con vocación como el Sr. Hernandez ; atento, respetuoso, amable y preocupado por mi bienestar en todos los aspectos. Muy importante que no tuve que pedirle que me hiciera algunexamen o enviara algun medicamento (como normalmente pasa con otros médicos) él siempre va un paso adelante. El se toma el tiempo para explicarle a uno su situación y las opciones que tenemos (exámenes, terapias o tratamientos) para mejorar nuestra salud Me siento feliz de saber que tengo a alguien responsable a quien confiarle mi salud y la de mi familia. Indudablemente lo recomiendo!

Waiting time is terrible. Waiting room is over crowded. Front desk receptionists are not the friendliest. And they never answer the phones, and when they do they put you on hold for a VERY long time and then forgot who youwere in the first place. BUT Dr. Hernandez is great. He takes his time with you and really explains everything and is very efficient. The only reason I come back.

Wait time varies. Sometimes it can take several hours before you're even seen by Dr. Hernandez. There are times when he's not even there. When discussing your medical profile with you, he always seems to be preoccupied and lacks knowledge whenyou ask questions and want answers. One may think he would use the knowledge and experience he has from the various degrees hung up on the walls of his office, instead, he is highly dependent on Google.
