Specialties

Dr. Sergio Hernandez has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Ignore the 5-Star

My sentiments are much like the other poor review. Dr. Hernandez is one of those doctors who is the know-all, end-all and be-all....you aren't in control of your own care when he's in charge...so incredibly frustrating to come out and be better after getting off the meds he prescribed while I was admitted

Dr. Hernandez is Unethical and Inexperienced

My mother was involutarily admitted to ECMC in Buffalo for Psych. She is prescirbed Suboxone outside of the hospital which she has an up to date prescription and docotr whom prescibes this monthly. Dr. Hernandez is refusing to let her have her Suboxone medication while in ECMC psych ward. She is now exetremly ill from withdrawl and they will do nothing for her. He is a terrible doctor.
