    Dr. Fernandez is one of the finest physicians that has cared for me. He is professional, kind, compassionate and clinically astute. More that once he has called me to check on the status of my respiratory problems. On one occasion he spent more than 30 minutes on the phone with my insurance company to petition for a medication that my insurance company had denied; He was successful in getting it approved.

    National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
