Hiroko Fernandez

Dr. Hiroko Fernandez, MD, FACC, FHRS

Internal Medicine



Hello, my name is Dr. Hiroko Fernandez, and I am an associate professor of medicine in the University of Florida Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, specializing in clinical cardiac electrophysiology. After receiving my medical degree from the University of Maryland, I remained there to complete a residency in internal medicine. I then went on to complete a cardiovascular fellowship at the University of Buffalo before returning to the University of Maryland for a fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology. I am board certified in internal medicine, cardiology and clinical cardiac electrophysiology.I am originally from Yokohama, Japan, and worked as a journalist in medical news, which inspired me to become a physician myself. I enjoyed arrhythmia in medical school and was drawn toward this path. My professional goal is to provide high-quality patient care, build positive and collaborative relationships with my colleagues and exercise my interpersonal skills and passion for electrophysiology into clinical practice, research and education.My strong interest in cardiac electrophysiology is the application of high-definition 3D electroanatomical mapping systems in challenging arrhythmic cases. I am also interested in further development of leadless or epicardial devices, including leadless pacemakers and subcutaneous ICDs. I developed educational programs on subcutaneous ICDs for medical students, cardiovascular fellows, industry staff and FDA staff through training programs at the Jacobs Institute at Kaleida Health.I am passionate about research, education and clinical care of arrhythmia patients, in particular with a focus in continued improvement of techniques to minimize risk of the procedure and enhance the outcome of arrhythmic patients. I have special expertise in atrial fibrillation/atrial flutter ablation, biventricular pacing, PVC management and ablation, pacemaker and ICD implantation, SVT ablation and VT ablation, with the first three being my favorite procedures.Outside of work, I enjoy playing the piano, particularly Chopin, staying home to spend time with my husband, cooking and baking. I also enjoy traveling back home to Japan with my husband to be with my family.

"Extraordinary doctor who performed a successful ablation on me in 2019. I went to Dr. Beck because she was highly recommended to me by a world renowned electrophysiologist in Buffalo, NY. , who has trained hundreds of EPs. I was also told by several NPs in Buffalo that Dr. Beck was the best in my area. She is very compassionate and understanding surgeon. Florida is very lucky to have such a supremely talented doctor working in their area. If I ever needed another ablation, I will be traveling to wherever Dr. Beck is practicing. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
