Very thorough and patient. Takes sufficient time and explains everything clearly.

Dr. Fernandez utilizes sufficient time to explain conditions and treatment options and does not appear to let any time pressure affect the thoroughness of his explanations. When I recently needed to refill a prescription, his team (nurse) worked diligently with the insurance company to ensure the medications, which were backordered at the prescribed dose, were delivered right away at the dosage that was available.

I can't say enough good about Dr Fernandez and his nurse. I trust them with my life.
