F.M. writes: “I can’t explain enough how good and caring he is; it’s freaking amazing to have and know and feel that your doctor is there for you, that he loves what he does and by far and most important that he is there for all the right reasons and he truly listens. I wish I had met him years ago so he could have taken care of me from day 1.

M.J. writes: “Dr. Fernandez-Silva has always been very compassionate, patient and an excellent doctor. I’ve been a patient for almost a year and they have helped me more than my previous pain management physician of 11 years was able to! And I’ve been able to decrease my pain medication to over half! If you want to try someone new or get a second opinion, this would be the best place to do that.”
