She enjoys treating a variety of patients including those struggling with workplace ergonomics, expectant mothers and anyone working towards a wellness or fitness goal. Dr. Hernandez’s favorite part of chiropractic is creating a relationship with her patients and getting to know them over the course of treatment.
