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.
