Dr. Jorge L Hernandez has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

After seeing this Dr for over 12 years, I visited his office in Winter Park yesterday for a 2:45pm appt, I arrived at 2:30pm and was not greeted or asked for anything until I knocked on the window at 3pm asking if she needed anything and to make sure someone knew I was there. An hour went by and nothing had happened. After asking several times if they knew how long it may be b/c my daughter had another appt after an injury she had at 4:30pm. At 4pm, I still had NOT been seen or told how long it could even be. I had to leave to take my child to her appointment and couldn't wait any longer - still had not been called into a room or asked for my ID or Insurance card----the office ladies were of NO Help and just said he was very busy with chronic patients and or surgery - I was to continue to wait and Who Knew How Much Longer It Could Be? What a dissapointment - they offered NO apologies nor ANY solutions...save your money people-these women are running a circus NOT a business! If I behaved this way at my job, I wouldn't have one!
