From the very beginning Dr Fernandez and his staff were amazing. Continuing after my surgery they exceeded all expectations one could ask for while recovering. I thank all of them for their ongoing professionalism, knowledge and ongoing assistance. Specifically Ms Howard has been one of the greatest people I've dealt with in the medical field. She's always willing to go above and beyond to do whatever is necessary to make sure her patient is taken care of. She not only is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, but also very personable and willing to take the time to explain things. She is the ideal role model for students coming into the field. Couldn't thank her and the entire staff enough!
I highly recommend Dr John Fernandez. I came from 90 miles away to see him after the physician assistant of my local orthopedic doctor wouldnât listen to me and refused to help me any further. At my first visit Dr Fernandez thoroughly examined my wrist and records of the history of treatments to date. Right away I saw much kindness in him and I also realized that he isnât arrogant in any way. He patiently listened to my concerns and explained why I was still in so much pain and gave me treatment options. He went into great detail about the expected and possible results of all prospective treatments, giving an honest and educated opinion. His calm and reassuring demeanor made me immediately aware of his compassion for his patients and his passion for helping his patients to have the best possible outcomes for their wrist/hand problems. The results of the surgeries Dr Fernandez did on my wrist reflect the highly skilled abilities of this wonderful doctor. Iâm also impressed with his physician assistants. Like Dr Fernandez, they show willingness to listen patiently and I never feel rushed at any of my appointments and I never leave with unanswered questions. Also impressive is the fact that patients are encouraged to call any time with any concerns.
