All stops in this visit were very good.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2016
Dr. Fernandez was very professional, caring and genuinely concerned for me as the patient. He obviously has much experience with IPF. I like the fact that patient cases are reviewed by a team of experts for further comments & discussion.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2016
Dr. Fernandez embodies all that we desire in our doctor. He is a brilliant clinician, professional, caring, and communicates in a way that patients can understand. He includes his patients in the plan of care and makes himself available between visits if necessary. I have been under Dr. Fernandez' care for over 4 years, and am certain that without his direction, I would not have survived.
