Accepting new patients

Since I was a child, I wanted to be a doctor. Now that I have been in practice for 14 years, I still look forward to every new work day. I believe that to diagnose and treat patients effectively a doctor must not only have excellent examination skills but takes time to listen compassionately and attentively. The best outcomes happen when patients actively participate in maintaining good health, preventing illness, and controlling disease. To do that, I provide my patients with solid medical information and treatment plans that are aligned with their needs and goals so they can make the best possible health care choices. In 1993 I graduated from UC Berkeley with honors and then attended UC Davis School of Medicine with a Regents Scholarship. After completing my residency in 2002, I joined Arroyo Medical Group and currently served as its medical director. I maintain board certification in Family Medicine, and I am an active member of The American Academy of Family Physicians and the California Academy of Family Physicians. I'm happily married with 2 children and enjoy surfing, swimming, hiking, and traveling in my spare time.

in Tehachapi, CA |
My husband and I started seeing Dr. Fitchmun soon after we moved to A.G. in 2003. From the beginning I felt his warmth and genuine concern for my wellbeing. He takes the time to get to know my story and makes me feel as if I were his only patient every time I come in. We love him so much that we still see him even though we moved 3 hrs away in 2014...that was 3 yrs ago. I am sad to think that I will need to find a new doc soon where I live. Thanks, Dr. Fitchmun, for your great care!

Dr. Fitchmun is a wonderful GP! It's difficult to find a Dr. who is so well-rounded. He's has everything you want in what is unfortunately a dying breed of GP. He's rational, smart and thorough, serious but very personable. He listens to his patients and has a great bedside manner. He's genuinely interested in your well-being. He has been my Dr. for around 14 years and I give him the highest recommendation.
in Nipomo, CA |
Dr. Fitchmun has been our primary care physician for approximately two years and we feel so blessed to be under his care. He is tireless in his efforts to provide his patients with the best medical care possible. He is a very knowledgeable physician. He is patient, compassionate and truly cares. Did I mention that he is a very good listener? I must also commend his staff for their professionalism and caring ways. They are all my HERO'S!!

As I get older I find that it is important to have a doctor that cares about you. Dr. Fitchmun goes beyond the office visit. He has called me at home to see how I am doing after a tough day.I also have called him at home for advice about a medical problem. I know he cares about me and my health.

Dr Fitchmun was very knowledgeable and helped me with a serious condition that several other doctors totally missed. I am greatful to him and his wonderful staff.
in Grover Beach, CA |
I so appreciate it that he takes time to explain things to me. He is the best Doctor that I ever had. I have so much faith in him....I trust him - and.... this is saying alot.
in Nipomo, CA |
Excellent doctor - takes time to listen - very knowledgeable - best provider I've seen in this area.
in San Luis Obispo, CA |
Dr. Fitchmun is, quite simply the best physician I have ever had. In a specific instance he saved me from grave medical harm by identifying a serious condition another MD had concluded was not serious. He did this by taking the time to listen to me and do a thorough physical exam and referred me to appropriate follow up care immediately. He is obviously in this business because he cares about his patients and enjoys his work. I cannot recommend him highly enough for his skills and compassion.
