Patient Testimonials

Dr. Hernando has brought me back to the normal world, as much as my illness will allow. He is compassionate, caring but stern when required. I am grateful to Dr. Hernando and his wonderful staff.

Leonor Arango

This is the best most amazing psychiatrist I have ever met, 6 years strong with him and I couldn’t be happier!! throughout my life I have been to different doctors, I have had mental illness since I was little and this guy has saved my life! the only downfall is that you have to wait long in the office because he takes his time to talk to his client and to understand them. Thiss Doctor really really cares. if you’re looking for a good doctor I totally recommend Dr. Hernando… he is a master at what he does.

Until a nurse gave me clothes from her personals. I am giving them credit for treatment that goes above all else.. love. They look like they have been working with some long term patients, and yet find time for the newest patients. Thank you for taking care really good care. Dr. Hernando my Doctor truly deserves a trophy for his exceptional practice. Thank you blonde nurse. And Daniel who welcomed me from the beginning.

Christian Gómez

Following a very tragic situation I was referred Dr. Hernando. The staff at his office in Kendall are very professional and caring! Dr. Hernando is one of the most compassionate Human Beings I’ve ever encountered. His professionalism, knowledge and empathy toward his patients is crystal clear. Dr. Hernando takes his time to evaluate your particular situation and truly cares for his patients!

Yes, there are long waits sometimes and sometimes he’s not available and it’s a nurse practitioner instead but he’s worth it and his office is conveniently located, the staff are helpful and attentive, the prices for his returning clients are great and because of that, I can afford great care. He knew exactly what I needed from the day I met him. The medicine he prescribed me works so well for me with no side effects, is extremely cost effective and has changed and SAVED my life. This is NOT any type of paid review and they didn’t even pressure me or even tell me to make a review on him I just appreciate the change he’s made in my life.
