About the Providers at New Milford Medical Group

Our staff of Physicians, Cardiologists and Advanced Practice Providers, ably supported by 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 having it 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.

Easy Storage Solutions

If you have ever wondered what we do when we have things that we have to store, we have turned to the flat pack containers from The Storage Answer. These units can be stored when not in use to make more room inside open spaces and store rooms, and even out in the vehicle lot space. Because these containers can be used inside as easily as out, it makes more sense than converting shipping containers! These units are weatherproof, sturdy and secure. They are much safer and more secure than a flimsy plastic shed and will be there for decades to come. We are very happy with the flat pack containers from The Storage Answer!
