While in Vernon, Dr. Hernandez was also on the board of the Lamar County Cattlemen’s Association. In his first year of practice he became co-owner/partner and the sole practitioner of the clinic.
The six months leading up to taking over as TCVH’s sole practitioner and practice manager, Dr. Hernandez practiced in a “relief veterinarian” capacity, performing surgery, preventative medicine and general practice, in multiple small animal clinics across Alabama.
Dr. Hernandez is married to his beautiful wife, a Mary Kay Sales Director, Stephany, and together they have a son, Lexton, four dogs: Maggie, Toby, Frank, and Hitmonchan.

Doc has recently developed an affinity for Royal Pythons, also known as Ball Pythons. He has two that reside safely in his office.
They would all like to welcome you to the TCVH family!
