For over twenty five years Dr. Oscar Hernandez and the staff at Metromed of Miami have cared for families of all social backgrounds with compassionate and state of the art medical care. Dr. Hernandez is committed to establishing trust and strong personal bonds with his patients, and he believes in being a part of your healthcare in both its brightest moments and darkest hours. Dr. Hernandez does not have an answering service; when you are sick in the middle of the night and call for help, his voice will be on the other end of the line. Dr. Hernandez is now taking care of third generation patients, the grandchildren of original patients who have sustained the utmost confidence in his care throughout the years.
Dr. Hernandez has a strong focus on integrated care, and his outstanding support staff excel at assuring that your care with specialists, diagnostic centers, and hospitals is coordinated so that there is cohesion among the many members of the medical team. This personal focus and care help eliminate the confusion and frustration that many patients experience in an otherwise disintegrated medical system. Dr. Jorge Gil, Kathy Ganem ARNP and Dannitzah Leon, ARNP are critical members of the medical team. These trusted professionals have served along side Dr. Hernandez and share his level of commitment.
Dr. Hernandez's office is not a clinic, it is a private physician's office. In-house medication dispensing and diagnostic services including blood tests, xrays, ekg, hearing tests, holter monitoring, ambulatory pressure monitoring, echocardiography, and ultrasound diagnostic services are always available, helping you secure your medications immediately and allowing Dr. Hernandez and his professional staff immediate access to your diagnostic results.
In addition to providing primary care, Dr. Hernandez is a recognized expert in weight loss and weight maintenance. He is one of a few who has passed the certifying examination of the American Board of Bariatric Medicine and he has practiced medical bariatrics (nonsurgical weight loss) for almost 10 years. Dr. Hernandez is an expert in modern weight loss medications that carry FDA approval. He serves patients from all over the world and he has helped them treat their diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, hypertension, and other chronic illnesses without medications, CPAP, or other sleep devices.
