Patient Experience Reviews
Excellent treatment. Caring and knowledgeable
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.
Awesome doctor! I was nervous after Dr. *** retired as my doctor of 25 years. Dr. Hernandez has been great for me! I would highly recommend her to others! Smart, compassionate, takes her time with me, always follows up! Great doctor!!!
Dr. Hernandez is always professional yet very warm in her communications.
Everything went well.
Even though I waited more than 15 minutes for the doctor, it was worth the wait to be with a doctor who cared and listened and clarified and was personable. Dr. Laura was great.
This is a new doctor for me after my 30-year doctor retired. I'm still unsure if I will continue here.
Dr. Hernandez actually talked with me and got to know a little more about me. She made me feel that she really cared about my condition. I liked her.
I'm very happy with Dr Hernandez and staff
We are very pleased with Dr. Hernandez and her nurse assistant Betty.
Second time seeing this provider which has taken over for my primary I had for the last 35 years. Overall was pleased during the visit.
My doctor of 40 years recently retired. My first three visits with the new doctor have gone well. It's been a good experience.
Very happy with the experience
Dr. Hernandez and nurse *** are very thorough
Laura Hernandez is an excellent physician. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a primary care physician.
I am extremely satisfied with the care that I have received from Dr. Hernandez. For decades before Dr. *** retirement, I was fortunate to be Dr. *** patient and I feel that Dr. Hernandez is giving 100% in her efforts to be a very capable member of this practice. I am pleased that I can be one of her patients.
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!
Was very pleased with the transition from *** to Laura Hernandez. Also, nurse assistant *** was very thorough and kind.
I like my new doctor, the staff was very good. ***
Dr. Hernandez was very thoughtful about my care. This was my first visit with her. I liked her a lot for my new PCP.
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.
Awesome doctor and office, finally found a excellent doctor
Laura is very good and I continue to be impressed with her knowledge and ability to communicate in a meaningful way
Dr. Hernandez is an excellent physician and always follows up promptly. Happy to have her as my primary care physician!
This was my first visit with Dr. Hernandez and her staff and I was very pleased with both the doctor and her staff.
Dr Hernandez is the best primary care physician I have ever had. She is patient and listens. She is very caring and understanding. When I submit a question on the MyChart system she always responds.
I haven't had a bad experience since I've been going to her since last year. The staff is great and so is the doctor. They are concerned people about their patients
Overall very good operation. I trust the people involved.
Dr. Hernandez had a very pleasant manner and was easy to talk with about health issues. She recommended a cardiac halter monitor to check on a possible problem.
Very impressed with Dr. Hernandez, very professional. Additionally she gave me a referral for a podiatrist.
Dr. Hernandez explained her delay - she had an unexpected urgent situation to attend to. She apologized for the wait.
Although this was a follow up for a specific concern, Dr. Hernandez was able to address new concerns that had transpired between appointments.
It is a refreshing change from my last doctor! They were herding cattle instead of providing health care. Appointment was easy calling is easy getting blood work done was easy. Stress free. Thank you for that!
Doctor Hernandiaz is an excellent physician who truly cares about your health and provides answers. I highly recommend her.
Dr Hernadez is very patuient, understanding and caring. She is the best GP I have ever had.
First time with Dr. Hernandez as previous Dr. Had retired. She was very professional and attentive to my needs. This was a routine annual physical exam. She listened carefully and explained thing in easy to understand language.
I have been a patient of this practice for nearly 30 years with Dr. Bruce Gerlach as my provider. He is retiring and this was an interview with Laura Hernandez to see if I wanted to stay with the practice. I loved her. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable of my background and health issues. I can see that we will have a good relationship, which is important to me.
Dr Hernandez has inherited a complicated patient in me. She took a good amount of time to understand my current status. Given that, I did not at all feel rushed through the appointment. I appreciate that.
Dr. Hernandez is caring, thorough, kind, professional, and I have complete trust in her.
My experience with a provider was always very well and he was always attentive. And helps me with my problems I was having.
Very caring provider Detailed explanations of problems and plan of care
Very satisfied with attentive care.
Laura was exceptionally detailed and helpful. She is terrific to work with.
Dr. Laura Hernandez is excellent. Caring, compassionate, accessible and responsive. Nurse *** is very good ***
My regular doctor is ***. I needed an appointment quickly and when I called the office *** Dr. Hernandez had an opening. I was most pleased with Dr. Hernandez and am glad that she is now part of the staff. I saw her again on *** and was also very satisfied with my patient care. Dr. *** is exceptional and I feel that Dr. Hernandez is a competent and wise addition to the practice.
That was my first visit with Dr. Hernandez. I was seeking a new primary care physician since my doctor of 30 years had recently retired. I was very pleased with Dr. Hernandez. Based on only one visit, I feel she may be a good fit for me. Her staff was also very helpful.
Recently moved to area, second visit and been very satisfied. Dr. Hernandez has been great, better than me and my wife expected!
*** I love my Doctors and staff. ***
I had a very good experience with my provider.After my visit and her review of my x-rays, she called me first thing the next morning and advised me to visit the ER for further review concerning my injury.
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.
Dr Hernandez is caring and very attentive. She really discusses the options and it feels like she's definitely on your team, like she's in it with you.
Dr Hernandez listened to my input regarding any health issues and provided thoughtful and helpful feedback. She didn't seem rushed and showed a lot of respect for me as the patient.
Dr. Hernandez is personable, knowledgeable and listens very well. She has outlined additional care for me that has been useful and helpful to my overall health and well-being. 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!
Dr. H was great
The medical assistants and Doctor were wonderful to work and talk with.
