Dr. Fernandez is an amazing doctor. He always takes time to talk to both me as the parent, but also address any concerns my son has. He makes the visit an easy, non-threatening experience. My son actually enjoys going to the doctors because Dr. Fernandez is so friendly and welcoming. My son always wants to save time to talk about the latest movies and Dr. Fernandez makes him laugh for a good 10 minutes. You won't find a better doctor our there.
Dr. Fernandez is an amazing Dr. He goes above and beyond all time time
we love our care provider!
Dr Fernandez took time to listen to our concerns. he explained things to us regarding our daughter that our previous nuerologist seemed too bothered with us to discuss. We are extremely pleased with our visit with Dr Fernandez and will return to see him as our daughters future nuerologist.
very good with my son and answered any questions we had.
Dr Fernandez is a very kind provider. My son really seemed to like him and considering his aversion to doctors since being diagnosed with seizures, that is extremely important to us.
I say it was a great one..
dr. Fernandez is the first Dr. I felt truly listened to what has been going on with my child. I felt so reassured that we were on the right path after leaving.
The doctor's nurse Michelle was phenomenal - she accommodated a visit the next day in the Erie office so that we did not have to travel all the way to Pittsburgh !!!The physician was kind, courteous and knowledgeable! He was very approachable and put my worries at ease ! I would without a doubt return to this practice for any concerns with my son !
great physician easy to talk to and my daughter was not intimidated by him...she really liked him
