- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

If you would like to be seen by a doctor whose main focus is you and your health, then this is the doctor for you. I have never met a doctor who was more in tune with the needs of his patients, who listens as well as he does, and who actively includes his patients in their plans of care. No one knows my body and what it does (or does not do) as well as I do - and Dr. Hernandez understands that, and utilizes me as a key tool in customizing my care. He takes into consideration his patients' financial and emotional needs too. You won't have him telling you to do a bunch of things you don't need just so he can make money. You living well is his main focus. I have never waited more than 15-20 minutes past my appointment time, and even if I had, it would be worth it. I know that whatever is keeping Dr. Hernandez from his appointment time, someone else needs his attention at right that moment. I am happy to wait because I know I will have his full attention when it is my turn. I also know that wait times at Dr. Hernandez's office are nowhere near as long as they are in a lot of other places in the Valley. 15-20 minutes is child's play.
Dr. Hernandez has been wonderful to our Family! He is very caring and informational when it comes down to our Health... He's very respectful and a good listener..Dr. Hernandez is a very positive person! He reminds us how important we all are to him and to ourselves... Our family have never felt so comfortable with just any Dr... Only Dr. Hernandez!! You can tell him anything about your diet, and how you feel, and never get negative feedback. He works very hard with us in resolving our health problems!
Dr Hernandez came highly recommended to me from other family members and after visiting him he quickly became my doctor as well. Now Dr. Hernandez handles almost all of our family. He iPad the most excellent bedside manner and truly makes you feel like you and your health issues matter. I highly recommend this competent and caring doctor.
