“Dr. Runk coming into my life and taking care of me was meant to be. She’s definitely the reason that I’m still here with my family today.”
— Kelly R.
Dr. Hernandez grew up as an Air Force brat, “a child of the world.” She is a Navy veteran, having served her country at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan from 1994 to 1997. She is Puerto Rican and speaks Spanish fluently. She used to be a belly dancer and is now a proud mom of two teenagers. Dr. Hernandez is a breast cancer survivor herself so she can personally relate to many of the patients in her care.
