Where the ART

of medicine is loved,
there is also love of humanity

The Physician

should not only treat the disease
but also the patient who
suffers from it

He who has HEALTH

has HOPE, He who has hope
has EVERYTHING!

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US

From my first appointment with Dr. Santiago Hernandez in May 2015, my experience has been positive, productive, and professional. Office visits always are on time, unhurried, and include back-and forth dialogue. Dr. Hernandez listens to my input.

Tom Nussbaum

Few are the times I have visited a doctor’s office that my appointment time was kept. Fewer are the times that I did not get the feeling I was being rushed. I did not ever experience those conditions with Dr. Hernández. His demeanour and professionalism overwhelmed me.
