Specialties

Dr. Aland R Fernandez has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr Fernandez walk into my room at the hospital he was very rude. He told me "you had a heart attack" he then walked out and would even answer 1 question. He is the rudest Doctor that I have ever met. He didn't even see me after the heart cath. I left the hospital without any idea why I had a heart attack. because of how rude he was I decided not to follow up with him. The worst experience

After 4 years and several surgical/cardiac procedures.

In every aspect of his professional expertise and personal mannerisms, as fine a physician as I have ever encountered. The same is to be said for his surgical personnel and his office staff. I would go further than just recommend him to family and friends - I would actively encourage them all to experience such a medical practice. As an aside - after quite a few office visits over a 4 year span, I have never waited more than 15 minutes to be seen - something i consider a modern-day miracle worthy of canonization for every member of this practice.

Aland Fernandez has been my cardiologist for 7 years. I have found him to be not only a fine doctor, concerned and personally involved with me as his patient, but I feel that he is my friend as well. I am grateful to him and to his staff for care I have gotten. He's the best a doctor could be !

Opinion

Through negligence of the office my surgery was delayed which caused continued pain and stress. When I discussed the situation with the Doctor he said, "I don't want to hear it". He is an excellent surgeon but his manners are unprofessional as a Doctor. He ignored my Primary Doctor's concern about not being able to breathe when exerting. His remark was, "You are 88 years old and you will be fine".
