My experience with Dr. Fernandez is very positive. He took time to explain my options. I’ve had 5 stents put in during 3 catheterization procedures. My confidence level is very high. I thank him for his professionalism.

Dr. Fernandez and I met 21 years ago when I was in the Emergency Room with chest pain. I have been his patient ever since. He has "installed" 13 cardiac stents over the 21 years and I have nothing but good comments to make. I have changed my life style adding 15 + hours of exercise to my weekly routine. I take limited medications and feel better than I did at 40. God Bless Alan Fernandez.

I moved here to the Clearwater area from NW Indiana. I took a recommendation from my Brother-in-law and went to see Dr. Fernandez. Without even looking at me he said what do you want to bet you have blockages. Iwould recommend a cardiac catheter. We did the cath I had two blockages 1-90% 1-78% I had 2 stents installed on thursday. Dr Fernandez likely saved my life. He's aces in my book.

I waited for an hour and 30 minutes in the examination room and my questions about the results of a Nuclear Stress test were brushed aside when Dr. Fernandez got around to me. Very disappointed.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Fernandez for two years. Up until now our experience has been satisfactory. However, our recent experience was not. 1) Our wait was an hour and fifteen minutes. We asked if there was anything wrong. Cardiologists do have emergencies. One of the assistants was annoyed with us for asking. She said that he was just behind and offered no further explanation. 2) When we did finally see the doctor he rushed through the visit. My wife had a test since the last visit. The results of that test had been forwarded to our primary care physician, who told my wife that there was a problem. When we asked about the test Dr. Fernandez just said that the results were normal, and offered no further explanation. He rushed to the next patient.

I have been seeing Dr Fernandez for several years. He is the best. His focus is on preventative treatment but as in interventionist, there is no better in our area. I recommend Dr Fernandez without reservation. As a diabetic Dr Fernandez and Dr Sola have saved the circulation in my legs. Without their help, I'm sure I would have faced amputation. This is a busy practice, but well worth your patience for the level of care they provide.

Dr. Fernandez is kind, compassionate. He will take the time to get to know you. You are NEVER TREATED LIKE A NUMBER. He will listen ?? to you. This is very rare these days. I have worked in the medical field and by doing so you get to know different doctors. My husband and I are both his patients. If you want the best care and a doctor that actually listens to you I would go to Dr. Fernandez. Dr.Fernandez office staff is excellent. Appointments are on time. Excellent doctor

This man has no bedside manner whatsoever. 1 year ago, my father suffered a massive heart attack that took his life. We had the unfortunate experience of having this cardio dr on call that night. I will never in my life forget all of he events that took place. Scrolling through his phone while telling us there was nothing he could do. Never even said I'm sorry for your loss, nothing. So little respect for my dad, a Pinellas county Sherriff's deputy of 30+ yrs. You sir, should be ashamed.
