My mother was scheduled to have an exam & as she signed papers she saw an in-depth contract stating her info would be sent to a collection agency if delinquent so she contacted her provider to make sure it was covered, which wasn't b/c the MD who sent her there failed to inform the insurance of the exam & the secretary was SO RUDE. Her words, "the Doctor said just leave, until you get your insurance together"... "you can go," SO RUDE. SO SO RUDE. They will NEVER EVER SEE MY MOTHER AGAIN.
Crooked Oppong,for someone who came to a Cardiac facility with no referral , no insurance authorization, refused to sign the paperwork allowing Billing procedures , & in addition was rude to the Office Manager/Front Desk , and actually wasted a full appointment slot that other patients were waiting for--you certainly have the Gall to write badly on this office, let alone rate the MD , who never saw nor treated nor even spoke to your "mother" !!! Nasty persons, we have your name---Stay away!!!
Dr. Fernandes is an excellent Cardiologist. He has been monitoring my son since I was 38 weeks pregnant. As any parent can imagine, hearing your son has an issue with his heart is a terrifying experience, however Dr. Fernandes' continued compassion and professionalism has been a tremendous help in dealing with the emotional stress that comes with such diagnosis. I highly recommend Dr. Fernandes. His staff is wonderful as well! Ms. Jackie always makes us feel welcomed and at ease upon arrival.

The best Doctor in NJ , and I hear also NY, for Fetal Cardiology.
Dr. Fernandes has been my 13yr old son's cardiologist since he was a newborn. A year ago he detected a potentially life threatening new heart condition my son developed completely unrelated to why we were seeing him. He treated him immediately and I believe saved his life. I couldn't put into words how highly I recommend Dr. Fernandes.
