Upon completion of his residency in 2006, Dr. Fernandez moved to Maryland with his wife and has been a physician in the Emergency Medicine Department at Holy Cross Hospital. He is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine for Georgetown University School of Medicine. In 2009 he did a subspecialty fellowship in phlebology and joined Center for Vein Restoration. He has been practicing phlebology ever since.
After these rewarding professional milestones, Dr. Fernandez is proud to now serve on the team at Center for Vein Restoration, where the physicians have rededicated their careers to bringing relief to patients coping with venous disease.
“I had my own experience with venous disease. I went years with misdiagnosed venous disease and associated pain. I want to make sure that similar situation does not happen to others.”
His dedication to providing state-of-the-art treatments comes at an important time – an estimated 40 million Americans now suffer from vein disease. Medical practice is rapidly advancing to reduce the suffering from painful symptoms, and yet it’s still too often an under-diagnosed condition.
“It is my great joy to see the rapid benefits that so many patients get after years going undiagnosed. This is most important in patients with venous stasis ulcers and dermatitis.”
Dr. Fernandez describes his personal work in the field of venous insufficiency and areas where he has a particular focus: “I specialize in the treatment of venous ulcers and varicosities.”
