Chronic kidney disease at any stage is scary for a parent to face. Fortunately, Dr. Hernandez not only explained the condition in depth for us, he gave us hope for our son's future. We like his treatment approach and appreciate his positive attitude!
Dr Hernandez is a wonderful doctor and has been kind to our son. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with kidney failure with their child. He very caring and compassionate and willing to look outside the box for treatments. The Spokane community was sad to see him go..fortunately, we've moved to now we may get to keep him as our doctor! Yeah!
