Dr. Fitchmun's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fitchmun "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.

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.
