Knowledgeable, friendly
Dr. Hernandez was very kind and explained my condition to my satisfaction.
Dr. Hernadez explain things very good.
She was a poor listener. Appeared to have her "own" agenda as to changing my medications without even thoroughly listening to my history. She kept Initially assuming that she was seeing me for a long standing symptom when In fact It was only 6 days. I needed to repeat several times that this was NOT a long standing symptom.
Thanks Doctor Hernandez
Did not allow me time to explain my background because she had a "very busy schedule"
