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 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.
great care trust him without question
My family and I were very pleased with the care given me.
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".
Dr. Fernandez is THE BEST!!! I have recommended him to numerous other people in the past 2 1/2 years and they all rave about him and his way of treating his patients.
I'm telling you that Doctor Fernandez and his staff are among if not the best I've ever seen. (and I'm not his family either)
I recommend all my friends to *Doctor Fernandez.
Dr. Fernandez is an excellent doctor, I am blessed to have met him and been his patient...he will do my surgery soon and I have full confidence in him
I can not say anything but good about this care giver, he was in my words EXCELLENT.
Dr. Fuzz is awesome! He gives great medical care, and provide ethical care within his scope of practice.
Prolonged wait times was only problem area. Everything else was very good.
