Ratings for Dr. Thelma T. Fernandez
I have gone to this doctor for over 10 years I would never consider changing doctors sometimes there is a little weight but that is due to the fact that she takes so long with each patient because she cares and she is an excellent doctor and the staff is caring and right on top of things as I said would never change she is a wonderful person and a great doctor
If you are lucky enough that they answer the phone, you better pray they follow through. Usually, you'll be better by the time you can be seen by the dr. Appointments generally are set 4-6 weeks from the time you call. A trip to the ER is supposed to get you in sooner, but they don't respond to ER orders either. Good luck! Better to go homeopathic unless you need a bone set or some surgical procedure. Even then you'll need the dr to get a referral. Again. Good luck. I clearly don't.
I went in for my stomach came out with an inhaler prescription. Went back in cause it was still bothering me. I wanted a scan or something. Never heard back from anyone. It's been a year. I'm never going back there again. I told her what it felt like and that it hurt. She didn't seem to care. And the other Doctor is just as bad.
My son was sick and I tired to get in appointment with him early in the morning and was told the only available appoint was in 2 weeks. No one seemed to want to help. To make this story short I visit the urgent care a lot and never meet the DR!!
this Doctor refused to come to the ER when I was taken there. I had a 10mm Kidney Stone and the ER wanted me to be admitted. They felt I could not pass such a big stone. She refused. 8 hours later, another doctor I didn't know came and released me with the understanding that I contact this doctor the next morning to set up surgery. I did. This doctor told me to go home and wait for her call. I am still waiting. Somehow, I managed to pass that huge stone 7 days later but the ER Doctors told me I was at very great risk and had needed surgery. I was lucky that time but never went back to this doctor.
