I was very uncomfortable when nurses kept knocking on the door as Dr. Fernandez was checking my lower abdominal wound. I mentioned the concern, but she discounted it since the nurses knock on the door. The nurses were not the ones working with me, but asking questions about other things/patients. I don't think this is appropriate when I paid for my time with Dr. Fernandez.
Dr. Fernandez (and everyone I have seen at her office) shows the most concern and patience with my questions and worries. I am very thankful for the amount of time she spends with me and the great care she provides.
She is very nice and friendly and I would recommend her, but I felt like she was in a hurry and although she asked if I had any questions, I didn't feel like I had much time to gather my thoughts. I don't know if it was because it was late in the day, but I would have liked more time.
