    How was your appointment with Dr. Hernandez?

    Jan 15, 2021
    Dr Hernandez was very attentive and answered all my questions on my first visit to him. During this time of pandemic concern, I was pleased to see that the waiting room only had one or two people waiting at a time. The office staff were extremely helpful and answered any question I had. The wait time was not unreasonable but I did have to wait to be called in and then for a short time in the exam room. Dr. Hernandez was very personable as well.
