Our family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins) have been patients of Dr. Fisher for over 25 years. To all of us, he is the epitome of the consummate physician. He is highly skilled in his knowledge of medicine and health, and yet can communicate with patients in layman's terms that are easily understood. In addition to his medical expertise and ability to put patients at ease, he displays tremendous compassion and kindness when caring for his patients, qualities that are exceptional in health providers. Dr. Fisher takes the time to listen, to laugh, to connect with his patients on a personal level. He is the perfect example of the kind of doctor one seeks for care, and we consider ourselves truly fortunate to be his patients. We consider Dr. Fisher family; without his keen diagnostic skills, we would have been unable to start our own!

I have participated in the Concierge Program since its inception. Consequently, I feel qualified to make the following statements and assurances.
Simply stated, the Concierge Program restores a much needed human factor to the current healthcare equation. As a participant, the Program provides an effective means for me to voice questions, concerns, or pressing health issues to my physician and nurse. Such accessibility is available 24/7; an important consideration given my need for seeking medical attention does not neatly fit into scheduled office hours. Consequently, worry, concern, and apprehension are replaced with timely reassurance and professional direction by the one who knows my health situation best.
Most noteworthy, I find the Concierge Program creates an environment where a more healthy affinity, bond, rapport evolves between physician/patient. Communication becomes more natural coupled with easibility; more comfortable, more honest, more genuine. I believe such a profiting relationship is empowering to both Doctor and Patient.
Much more can be said; sufficient to say: the Concierge Program has contributed significantly to my health and well-being. I am a believer!

Dr. Luna-Rudin has been my Primary Care Physician for the past five years. I have had my share of medical problems and since [she] has become my physician I feel that I have been put into the hands of the most knowledgeable and caring person. A true professional Doctor who monitors me on a regular basis.
She diagnoses the problem or reads what other doctors advise, discusses the alternatives which helps me come to a decision regarding my care. I have complete faith in Dr. Luna-Rudin. She is my go to Doctor for considering my options.
I do travel and if I have medical problems I consult with Dr. Luna-Rudin who is always very accommodating and analyzes the issues which helps me make a decision.
I am aging and just knowing that Dr. Luna-Rudin is available makes me feel that someone understands the issues and will advise the best care.

Back in March I saw an ad in my local paper about Dr. Rich and his recent certification in obesity management. I called the next day and met with him and his nutritionist, Susan. I lost 40 lb today!!! The diet is Mediterranean style and easy to follow. I recommend to those of you out there who feel like they can't lose weight, give them a call. You won't regret it. I feel healthier than I have in 10 years. Good luck!

As a post-menopausal patient, I first went to Dr. Francesca Luna-Rudin, with a myriad of unresolved physical issues. Finally, I found a medical person who learned the art of listening. She listened to my issues, and did not gloss over my symptoms. That immediately inspired my confidence in her. I knew then I was on the right track to being well. Dr. Luna-Rudin leaves no stone unturned for diagnosing. And, this was so true in my case. It turned out, anemia was the cause for most of my problems.
During the winter of 2014, I experienced an episode diagnosed as atypical pneumonia, which she was first to recognize. In addition to her ability as a diagnostician, she also exhibits another rarity found today… some people refer to it as “bedside manner,” I prefer to think of it as compassion. Her understanding and compassion during my recovering from pneumonia gave me an even greater trust in her. Dr. Luna-Rudin is as concerned about a patient’s problem as they are.
Did I mention the Fairfield County Medical Staff? It mirrors the caring you would expect from this medical professional, Dr. Francesca Luna-Rudin.
