Dr. Fernandez is a wonderful doctor. He always comes in and makes us feel welcomed and my son looks forward to their "non-medical" conversations. He does a wonderful job relating with my son making him feel at ease and it has been a wonderful doctor-patient relationship. I have been so pleased with the care we have received over the past three years. Dr. Fernandez knows my son's medical history and never rushes us out the door. When so many doctors today make you feel like a number, Dr. Fernandez truly makes you feel as if you are his only patient for the day. I would recommend him and Children's Hospital everyday.
very satisfied with the care we received
Dr. Fernandez went above and beyond to make sure all of our concerns were addressed. He made us feel welcome. He made my daughter smile and gave her a toy to take home. It was her favorite character, Minnie Mouse. Dr. Fernandez is a wonderful doctor and helped us to stop our daughter's seizures.
Everything has been wonderful since changing providers.
Dr F was very good with my child and took interest in my concerns for her back pain, which neurosurgery has ignored. He discussed other avenues and causes of pain. He has very respectful of my concerns and listened with intent to offer solution
good doctor was receptive had good feedback
the Doctor is a professional person , thanks
Dr. Fernandez is great at making my son comfortable and always involves him in his care despite him only being 6 years old. It's great since my son has anxiety especially around drs and hospitals. Dr. Fernandez has a great attitude and bed side manner. We adore him!
My daughter loves going to see Dr. Fernandez! He is absolutely amazing with her!
we love the care we receive from Dr. Fernandez. he is great with our son and always answers all of our questions and concerns regarding to our son's care. we truly value and appreciate him as our son's neurologist.
Dr. Fernandez is excellent. My son looks forward to our visits and conversations with him. He truly takes time with us to talk about our medical situation, but he also wants to know who we are as a family and as the patient. It's so relaxing to go in knowing that my son is ready to talk about Marvel movies and not just about his medical background, but as a mom, I know that Dr. Fernandez is going to cover all of my questions about the tests, next steps and my son is at ease. UPMC is so lucky to have an amazing doctor on staff.
He is my favorite doctor that any of my kids have ever had. He listens to me and my son. He jokes around to make my son comfortable and explains things in a way that he can understand.
this provider and the staff at his office are always excellent
They are great in the Johnstown and Pittsburgh office for nero. I could not have asked for a better doctor for this problem. He never is rude he always listens to our concerns and helps us and at the same time make my 7 year old laugh.
very knowledgeable, explained things so I could understand, learned some new things about her condition
always nothing but great visits with him. he always brings a little toy for my daughter, makes her smile (and all of us really). very sweet, gets the point across, even if he has to explain is four different times in four different ways. He keeps at it until we all understand it lol. you can tell he cares about each kid he treats and that he loves his profession. 13/10 would recommend(:
love dr Fernandez. he's so down to earth and so easy to talk to. he's very knowledgeable! what a great dr he is!!
Dr Fernandez is the best provider my child could see.. He's very respectful and loves what he does and it shows . He goes out of his way :)
dr. Fernandez has done a wonderful job with my child and I would continue to see him because of that he is an excellent provider and his nurse Michelle is amazing she has been with my child for 14 years knows his history like the back of her hand I can call and speak to her at any time and she returns my phone calls Michelle is an asset to the neurology department
I feel good and excited when I visited the doctor and also he is so friendly with my son
Dr. was wonderful ! we did not feel rushed. He kept making sure we understood everything and kept asking if we had any questions. He always included our son in the conversation which i appreciated.
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 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.
Dr. Fernandez is an amazing Dr. He goes above and beyond all time time
we love our care provider!
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.
