About

Dr. Edgar I. Hernandez is board certified in Adult Psychiatry. He has been practicing for over 10 years. His areas of interest include psychopharmacology, interventional psychiatry, and medical education. Dr. Hernandez’s practice focuses on medication management. Typically, he offers this in conjunction with supportive psychotherapy in 30-minutes follow-up visits.

Dr. Hernandez has gained extensive experience treating various psychiatric disorders in diverse populations including minority patients, LGBTQ+ individuals, and veterans. He has focused his career in treating treatment-resistant mood disorders with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
