I love Dr. Fernandez; she professional, caring, and spends time with her patients. The only thing is that the wait time is way too long.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER

I had the most horrible experience at Dr. Fernandez's office. The staff was incompetent and rude. I had an appointment at 3pm and finally walked out at 6pm, after waiting for 3 hours! It was a complete waste of time and so unbelievably unprofessional.

Disgusting

The "Doctor" title is too big for this woman that has not idea what professional word means. Don't respect people time, rude, bad temper, yelling people. How people like her got a Dr. tittle.

STAY AWAY!

This doctor gave me multiple dire diagnoses - some of which were life threatening - all of which proved to be totally false! She doesn't know what the heck she is doing and should not be practicing medicine .
