I have been very pleased with my care with Dr. Fuzz. I feel that he does care for his each of his patients.
Dr. Fernandez is the best!!
he has always been a great dr. to see. he is friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He explains things in an understandable way and always has time to listen.
I would absolutely recommend my care provider. I felt safe with his concerns about my overall health.
Both the resident and Dr Fernandez were articulate, careful, and very understandable. they showed concern for me, my past experiences, and my future.
I've recommended Dr. Fuzz to several people who watched and commented on my progress and improvement under his care.
Couldn't of found a more competent & caring doctor. The associates he chose are the best.
Explained options in an easy-going manner, asked for my questions/concerns and then we discussed those to my satisfaction. He did not appear to be in a hurry. I have full confidence in this surgeon and his team.
I could rate this provider at the top of scale given per category if they would just learn to exercise humility and transparency.
Everything is perfect!
Dr. Fuzz!!!! Highly recommended.
I loved my doctors positive attitude as well as the resident doctors working with him. I wish all medical teams were this great.
I already have recommended him.
If you could clone Dr. Fernandez, you should. Everyone agrees he is fantastic.
The doctor/surgeon spent about 45 min with me & we covered a lot of ground - he gave me good honest straight forward advice/diagnosis which I appreciated, some of which about my condition was disappointing but he was forthright and informed me what he good do should I take his advice - should things move forward as planned I will be seeing him again later this year - he was highly recommended by 2 other MD's by the way.
Dr. Fernandez explained my upcoming procedure in a way in which I understood. He also took the time to discuss my concerns with me. I have already recommended him to several friends! I have all the confidence in the world in Dr. Fernandez!
I'm trying to get some of my loved ones to consider treatment with him.
All staff very knowledgeable.
The Dr. Was condescending and seemed to be in a bad mood. I have something wrong but he either didn't get that or didn't much care. He was short and a little rude. This was the first time he had been like this. I left frustrated and upset.
I absolutely found my provider competent and courteous not only to me but to my family. They were at ease as well because of this great provider and the staff.
I felt like the overall staff was genuinely concerned about me and celebrated my successes!
I love Dr. Fuzz. He has been such a blessing in my life. I have recommended him to several of my co-workers, friends and family members. Several of them have come to him and had their surgery with him due to my recommendations. He is a life saver. I recommend him and his team to everyone that asks. THANKS DR. FUZZ!!!
I enjoyed meeting the doctor. He was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable. I am just not sure if he is going to be able to help me with my issues. I did not leave with peace about my condition. However, he was concern enough to set up more test for me so that we could try to get to the bottom of my problem.
My family and I were very pleased with the care given me.
great care trust him without question
This clinic has an excellent medical team.
Again, Dr. Fuzz is great.
I love Fuzz. He's awesome!
I have spoken to many people of how good Doctor Fernandez and his staff are I give a great %100
Sometimes I had to ask what the doctor meant especially with the meds, but he explained what he meant, but what I really appreciated was he didn't talk down to me.
Dr. Fernandez might very well be the nicest doctor I've ever known. I don't have words to describe my gratitude to him and and his staff.
This doctor's personality reminds me of a hormonal person. up one minute and down the next. I never know what to expect and it getting nerve wrecking.
Dr. Fernandez gave me all the time that I needed, as I came to the appointment with several questions. He treated me with respect and thoroughly answered all my questions. I appreciated that he thought through my questions and he answered them honestly. I can see why patients like him because he comes across as being genuine in his interactions with patients.
Outstanding, was a great team and is a great leader. "Has a great reputation state wide".
