Very, very knowledgeable with my particular atrial flutter/atrial fibrillation problem. His treatment plan was very detailed, he explained it and answered every question I had. Excellent doctor!

Dr Fernandez talked to our family after rounds and explained my husband's options for treatment in a complete and sensitive manner. He must have spent a half an hour with us answering all our questions and with great compassion and caring. He was a great comfort.

This is a doctor that the doctors go to. Ask any Critical Care nurse at Tampa General which is the best cardiology team at TGH and they will say FCI. Florida Caridovascular Institute. Dr. Fernandez is extremely profesional, articulate and intelligent.
