My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My patients are part of my extended family. I strive to always provide the best medical care possible, and I treat each patient as an individual, addressing how his or her medical issues relate to their entire life. Because of the MDVIP practice model, I am able to listen to my patients and give them the time they need to discuss all of their issues and concerns. My MDVIP-affiliated practice is all about knowing my patients medically and emotionally so that I can facilitate long, happy and healthy lives.

I had been in the MDVIP for a couple of years while living in Texas. We just moved to Florida and found Dr. Fernandez through MDVIP. He and his staff are AWESOME and we get the best and prompt care when needed. There is never a reason to visit an immediate care facility when your doctor is available 24/7.

We feel so lucky we have Ron Fernandez and his staff as our doctor. They care about us like family. We trust him completely with all our health problems. He has diagnosed problems that other doctors have missed. They always follow up with calls to make sure we are doing well. We hope he never retires. (-:

What do I say about Dr. Fernandez ? We have been the Dr's. patients since before MDVIP. He is the best doctor we have ever had. He is caring and compassionate, always seeking ways to improve our health. He is easy to talk to. Dr. Ron, his nurse Carolyn and staff Melony are a very important to us.
