About the Providers at New Milford Medical Group

Our staff of five Physicians, two Cardiologists and five Physician Assistants, ably supported by 24 Medical Assistants, Medical Techs, and Patient Services personnel are all involved in the process of delivering excellent healthcare. It's not as simple as typing something into the computer and it'll spit out an answer, you build a rapport and a relationship over time, and get to know the person's expectations, how they want to be treated, and what their goals are.
The interactions with our patients, one on one in the exam room are the best part of the day.
