    How was your appointment with Dr. Fernando?

    Apr 06, 2021
    Dr Fernando is a wonderful person and surgeon. Very kind, caring and compassionate. I went to him for a 2nd opinion because my breast surgeon in Johnstown told me I had to have a bilateral mastectomy due to my cancer diagnosis. I went to Dr Fernando knowing I needed a bilateral mastectomy and found out that I didn’t. All I needed was a lumpectomy. Dr Fernando and all his staff are very kind and thorough! My only regret is I didn’t find him sooner. I am more than happy to drive the 1 1/2 hours one way to see him knowing that I am receiving the best, up to date care available! I believe he was a gift to me. As soon as I met him I felt comfortable and cared for. All my worries prior to seeing him was lifted and I put all my faith in him and God.
