His more than thirty-five years of experience in pediatrics and his love of the field ensures that he is not only proficient in his current practice, but fully up to date with the latest developments that the discipline has to offer.
At his private practice, he and his team are always prepared to treat the many diseases and problems of childhood from infancy onward, but prefer, whenever possible, to focus on preventative medicine. Through periodic exams, indicated immunizations, and nutritional advice, their goal is to keep the children of the Central Valley healthy and happy, as well as to provide them with the best medical care available.

As a pediatrician, Dr. Hernandez examines, diagnoses, and treats children of all ages with a wide variety of injuries and illnesses.
