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.

from Alisa in FL February 27, 2018 for Ronald C. Fernandez, MD

When diagnosed with Cancer the worst is going through your mind. Since I was being treated out of state, they required me to have a local doctor.

Dr. Fernandez,

Thank you for your patience with my mom and caregiver. You and your wife are a good example of what MDVIP has to offer. Service at its best.

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.

from Timothy in FL February 20, 2015 for Ronald C. Fernandez, MD
