Please note these insurance updates.
We participate with the PPO and POS plans of a number of large insurance networks, including CIGNA and Great West. Note that we have always participated with Evolutions PPO, the insurance used by the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Department.
We also recently returned to the Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO network.
We have always taken Medicare. Now we are also accepting a number of Medicare replacement plans that are not HMO’s or restricted managed care policies. This includes most plans that are designated “PFFS.” If you would like to know whether your specific Medicare replacement plan is one we will accept, please call the office.
Dr. Hernandez was just included in “The Gulfshore’s Top Doctors,” an annual cover story in Naples’ monthly Gulfshore Life magazine. This review lists physicians in the region who are included in Castle Connolly’s “America’s Top Doctors,” a national listing based on physician recommendations (www.americastopdoctors.com). We’re happy to report that our doctor has been included 6 years in a row. Thank you, friends and colleagues!
The results have been tabulated for the Charlotte Sun's 2008 Readers Choice Awards, and the winners have been announced. We are proud and honored to report that our doctor was named "Best Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist." Dr. Hernandez has been voted this honor 9 different times. He tells us he is grateful for this recognition and feels "fortunate to practice with so many talented colleagues in this area." He credits his staff for providing him with excellent support, and he reports that he plans to "continue to work very hard to serve this community." A big "thank you" to our patients and their families.
