Mr Fernando is an intelligent, patient and an experienced doctor. He brought our little angle to this world with a planned C-section. My recovery was so smooth and healthy that no one could believe that I have had a c section in past 2 weeks. I would definitely recommend Mr Fernando to my family and friends.
