Having worked his way from a small town in Colombia to the hallowed halls of Princeton University and Harvard Medical School Harold Fernandez, MD, has devoted his career to helping the latino community and all his patients manage their conditions in the most effective ways possible. Fernandez discussed his journey into medicine which has brought him to his current position as head of cardiovascular surgery at Southside Hospital and system director of surgical heart failure of the Northwell Health System in his recent book Undocumented.
