This was the first time I saw Dr Hernandez. So some of these questions I couldn't really answer fully. I was in for my 6 month checkup. The time Dr Hernandez spent with me was appreciated. I was new to her and she was new to me, replacing Dr Gerlach.

I am extremely satisfied with the care that I have received from Dr. Hernandez.

This was my first visit with Dr. Hernandez after having Dr. *** as my primary care giver for 43 years. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, her positive demeanor, and her ability to communicate! I went in with an open mind, but with some hesitation about changing doctors after mine had retired. I now am confident I made the right choice with Dr. Hernandez! I feel comfortable enough to see her for any medical concern I may have!

I appreciate that even though my appointment was delayed, it's likely because Dr. Hernandez takes ample time with her patients, and does not rush them. She took time with me during a difficult appointment and I am thankful for that.

I have been a patient of this practice for nearly 30 years with Dr. Bruce Gerlach as my provider.

I can see that we will have a good relationship, which is important to me.

I love Dr. Hernandez. Initially I was a little sad when this office switched me to her from the doc I'd been seeing there for 28 years, (and he is still there!) without any communication or reason, but now I am glad. She listens and she is proactive. I really appreciate her a lot and I'm grateful to be in her care.

I feel like I have a very good grasp of where my health stands overall and things I need to watch out for, not only for me but for my family as well. My wife was switching doctors recently and we requested Dr. Hernandez for these reasons specifically. My wife has more health challenges and I feel Dr. Hernandez is the right choice for her for the long term. Thank you, Dr. Hernandez!
