About Ms. Hernandez

Melissa Hernandez, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, is a board-certified family nurse practitioner at  Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic in San Antonio, Texas. Ms. Hernandez is a native to San Antonio and completed her education at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, where she graduated with a Master of Science in Nursing as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and Family Nurse Practitioner. 

She has a 24-year career in nursing, with 13 of those at the Advanced Nurse Practitioner level. Ms. Hernandez began her nursing career in the operating room working as an OR circulator, where she first realized that the application of preventive medicine could positively impact patients. She then decided to continue expanding her education to care for patients. 

As her career advanced, she felt the need to interact with patients more and began her journey to become an Advanced Practice Nurse. During her clinical training at the UT Health Science Center, she discovered her passion for primary care and fostering health care provider-patient relationships.

Her strong desire to make a difference in health care and build patient relationships in a practice setting that felt like family inspired her to start Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic in November 2013. She strived to curate an environment built on preventive medicine and patient-centered medical care. Expanding upon that sentiment, Ms. Hernandez went into practice with her daughter, Ezara Gutierrez, DO. Together, this mother-daughter team, along with the wonderful staff at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic, strive to make their patients feel like family and make a long-lasting contribution to the community where they were raised.

Ms. Hernandez is the proud mother of two children and enjoys spending time with her family, dancing, and reading on her patio. Her goal is to educate patients on the prevention of early disease through multifactorial lifestyle interventions to prevent the risk of illness. She spends quality time with patients and educates them on improving their quality of life.

Ms. Hernandez is also BioTE® Certified for Bio-identical hormone pellet replacement, trained in all forms of Bio-identical hormone treatments for both women and men, and trained in medically supervised weight loss.
