Gastroenterologist Joins Selma Community


A board-certified gastroenterologist has joined the Selma community.

Dr. Jose Carlos Hernandez specializes in general digestive health, colon cancer screenings, liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). He cares for patients at 1142 Rose Ave., Suite A. The phone number is 559-856-6160, and the fax is 559-856-6162.

He earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan Medical School. He then completed residency training in internal medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif., and a fellowship in gastroenterology at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

“My father’s approach to medicine was to treat each patient with sincere compassion,” says Dr. Hernandez. “That day, I realized the tremendous gratitude the community had for my father and that if I’d become a dedicated and caring physician, too, I could have a fulfilling career because I would be genuinely helping the community.”    

Dr. Hernandez is fluent in English and Spanish.
