- 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.

While in a rehab center this summer (2015) after being sent there following a surgical procedure, Dr. Hernandez was chosen by the facility to be my primary-care physician. I was so impressed by his demeanor AND his being so thorough (because he picked up on a medical error VERY quickly,) I asked him if he would consider being my primary-care physician once I became discharged. Fortunately, he agreed to my request. I had been seeking for quite a long time to find just the right doctor, so the rehab center was the place where I found him. Amazing!
Dr Hernandez is a caring, listening, very clear in explanations & patient doctor. Highly recommended.
I own my life and mobility to Dr. Hernandez he has always been considerate and listened to my medical needs when ever I needed his assistance. If he had not referred me to a neurosurgeon I personally feel I would be in a wheel chair. When I was hospitalized in 2010 he was at my bedside daily for ten days and made sure I was comfortable and being medicated properly for my pain and other medical needs. I appreciate Dr. Hernandez style and have had many physicians to compare him to. He is very knowlegable and before prescribing a medication he always checks to make sure what he prescribes will not react with other meds you are taking. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez and is very happy to be his patient.
