I have been seeing Dr. Fernandez for over a year now, and I ALWAYS feel better after an appointment. The staff is friendly, kind and very competent. Their waiting room is clean and comfortable. I know all of the nurses now, and they greet me as if I am an old friend. I have never felt rushed or treated like a number there. Dr. Fernandez is warm and caring, with a good sense of humor. He listens carefully. He hasn't run out of empathy which must be tough in that line of medicine. I will attest to the fact that he is a very skilled anesthesiologist, as he has given me radio frequency ablations and trigger point injections, as part of my treatment. Both were exactly what I needed, where I needed it and helped considerably. I saw a negative review here, where someone claimed to have waited a ridiculous amount of time to be seen. That has never been my experience. Like at any physician's office, there can be emergencies. Perhaps that is what happened to that patient? My wait times have rarely been more than 15 mins past my appointment. If I did need to wait more, I wouldn't mind. I'd know that someone else needed Dr. Fernandez a bit longer that day, and he didn't turn that patient away. I know this because I was that person once. He doesn't shove people out the door just because their "time is up." I appreciate that level of care. Dr. Fernandez is easy-going, but sharp as they come. He was quite familiar with my odd, rare, maladies which is a rare treat for me. New doctors usually excuse themselves for a few minutes, then come back newly educated. I understand. But this time, he didn't even blink. Instead, he immediately asked me pertinent (and appropriate) questions about my current concerns and past care. I have a complex medical history and have actually been turned away by some other doctors. Dr. Fernandez listened carefully and now has my pain under control. Unfortunately, I have been to other pain clinics in the past, as I have genetic problems, that have caused long term pain and dysfunction. At some clinics, they treat the patient like a potential liar/addict, every single time you go. At one local clinic, even after 3 years as a totally compliant patient, the attitude of the staff and the doctor continued to be standoffish and sometimes overtly rude! I dreaded every visit to my old clinic. Their waiting room was stained and dingy. Cheap, uncomfortable chairs lined the walls, and there was nothing to look at except over a dozen nasty "NOTICES." It felt more like some kind of holding center, rather than a place of medicine. Dr Fernandez's office is the opposite. If you truly want help with your pain, see him.

I find the office staff easy to converse with. I'm one who likes to joke around some with people who I'm comfortable with and they are very easy to get a laugh out of and to play along with. Dr Fernandez is breath of fresh air when it comes to Doctors. He is personable and easy to talk with as well as to explain things to that are going on with my pain. He is very knowledgeable and seems to be a highly educated person but yet still has that connection, his relatability. Which makes him easy to talk with about personal issues that otherwise would be a bit awkward with some Doctors who aren't in touch. Thank You Dr Fernandez! Your work is much appreciated and does not go unnoticed.

Worse experience ever, people waiting 2-3 hours even longer past their appointment time before they see doctor. My advice, find any other provider that you can because these people do not care about your well being, how long you wait or what they put their patients thru while they sit in pain while they have to wait to see doctor. Please look around for other options.

I went in there hopeless because of how lightly I have experienced doctors are these days, im talking about my personal experience, after the visit, it was so hard to believe how much Dr Silva actually cared and how he was concerned after looking at my MRI and my history, it felt really really good to be listened too and not judged, I could keep going but at this point there's nothing else to say besides how grateful and blessed I feel so far.

So far the level of care has been excellent. Their ability to keep appointments on time and minimize the waiting time is extremely good! On average I spend less than 35 minutes in the offices for a 20-minute appointment.
