Dr. Hernandez is proud to have been born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Clark High School in 1983, earning academic scholarships including designation as a National Merit Scholar. Dr. Hernandez dreamed of a career in medicine since childhood, influenced by his father and his uncle, both local physicians. As a young boy, he developed an interest in archeology after finding arrowheads at his father's H ill Country ranch. While at Texas A&M University, he took advantage of the opportunity to further this interest and earned a degree in Anthropology in 1987. Dr. Hernandez then moved to Northern California to study at Stanford University School of Medicine. Following graduation in 1991, he completed an internship in Internal Medicine. He then traveled to New Orleans for residency in Ophthalmology at the Ochsner Clinic. Because of a special interest in glaucoma, Dr. Hernandez performed an additional year of sub-specialty training (Glaucoma Fellowship) at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago.
Dr. Hernandez was pleased to return to his native Texas in 1996 to enter group practice. In the summer of 2000, he opened his own office, North Central Ophthalmology, in the Stone Oak area. While many of his patients appreciate the convenience of an Eye M.D. in the neighborhood, Dr. Hernandez is honored to have patients who travel from as far as Del Rio to have him care for their eyes. Dr . Hernandez is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. He has received the Physician's Recognition Award in Continuing Medical Education from the American Medical Association. Dr . Hernandez has assembled a highly qualified and friendly staff to assist with your eye care needs. We are pleased to offer comprehensive eye care in a people-friendly environment.
