Dr. Messenger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Messenger "Dr. Adam J. Messenger received his MD degree at New York Medical where his interest in the field of Pharmacology motivated him to concomitantly pursue an additional graduate degree. He was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) National Medical Honor Society for his standing in the top 10% of his class. He subsequently decided to pursue the specialty of Internal Medicine to develop outstanding diagnostic skills and pharmacology expertise in all aspects of medicine instead of just one field. He was elected Chief Resident at the Yale University Residency Program at Greenwich Hospital and held the position of Chief Medical Information Officer for several years. One of the youngest physicians to receive the prestigious Physician Partner in Care Award at Greenwich Hospital, Dr. Messenger was voted by nurses to be the physician they felt most comprehensively displayed outstanding skill in patient care, compassion and team leadership. He was twice awarded the Greenwich Hospital Quality Award for going above and beyond in patient care, particularly with those who were critically ill, and was also awarded the Dale Carnegie Golden Book award by his peers for outstanding leadership. Because of his extensive experience is several areas of medicine, Dr Messenger has two aspects to his practice which are internal medicine and cosmetic medicine. He utilized his training as a cosmetic physician to develop innovative techniques for the injection of both Botulinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) as well as fillers (such as Restylane and Juvederm ). In fact, it is his passion for art and skill as a sculptor that enabled him to create his Vertical Volume Lift technique for fillers. This revolutionary, new technique allows immediate, non-surgical results with minimal to no bruising or downtime. It has been so successful that some pharmaceutical companies have asked him to teach his method to other physicians. Dr. Messenger also uses his training and extensive knowledge in internal medicine, pharmacology and alternative/integrative medicine as an internal medicine provider. Specifically, he is an expert diagnostician who often consults on the most difficult cases to create a treatment plan that utilizes both conventional and alternative medicine protocols. Dr Messenger is constantly innovating within the field of medicine to improve upon what already exists, and always takes time to educate both patients and their families while addressing the emotional and spiritual needs in addition to the physical. You will find that Dr. Messenger is committed to eradicating the cold, clinical barriers so common in many practices, which is immediately evidenced in his accessibility and down-to-earth demeanor. He strives to make each patient and family member feel secure and informed every step of the way, and very much looks forward to assisting you in achieving optimal health and comfort."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Messenger "I firmly believe in treating patients like family members. I ask myself "How would I feel if this were my mother, and how would I want her physician to act?". Thus, I take care to educate both patients and their families and am a firm believer in addressing not only the physical, but emotional and spiritual needs as well. My wish is for every patient and family member to feel secure and up to date every step of the way. There is no excuse for anyone to feel abandoned or left in the dark. "
