    Dr. Hernandez is always very thorough. Dr. Hernandez will always listen and provide answers to my concerns or questions I have about my treatment or visit.
    Good experience.
    Though this was the first experience with this provider, I was very pleased with the experience. I hope to be able to use this provider again in the future,.
    I'm sorry to say but I feel that Dr Hernandez while being a nice man has been slow to react to my health concerns. I had to ask my oncologist for a note to get off of work. My health snowballed last year to a variety of issues. I kept asking to see a specialist for my kidney issues, I asked for help in losing weight. Dr Nicolaus kept having me do blood work for weeks, meanwhile my health kept getting worse and I kept gaining weight. Finally I got off work and Dr Hernandez had me see a nephrologist and this week I finally started the HMR diet. I am 150 pounds overweight! He gave me a month extension off work but I feel I need more time to give this diet a chance. I don't have confidence in Dr Hernandez and I'm thinking of changing providers
