Dr. Martha T. Fernandez is originally from the Philippines. She attended undergraduate school at the University of Virginia, where she was the Captain, Manager and Choreographer for the Cheerleading Team. She completed medical school at the University of Virginia Medical School and internship and residency at Baylor College of Medicine where she served as Chief Resident.
She decided to specialize in OB/GYN because it allows her to enjoy every aspect of medicine, both primary care and surgery. Her favorite part of the job is the long term relationships that evolve caring for women from adolescence to menopause and of course delivering babies.
Dr. Fernandez is Board Certified and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and serves as a managing director of The Group For Women. Dr. Fernandez is currently the Director of our Ultrasound department and recently obtained accreditation from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
She and her husband, Rusty Cook, stay busy with their two sons and daughter.
