Dr. Fitzig's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fitzig "Graduated cum laude from New York University. Went to New York University School of Medicine. Did my internal medicine and cardiology training at Long Island Jewish Hospital which is now part of the Northwell network. I am board certified in Internal medicine, cardiology and had a certification in Geriatrics for the period of 1990-2000. I am a fellow of the American College of Cardiology."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fitzig "I am conservative on testing. I spend a lot of time on the initial interview and put in the time to retrieve all the patient's prior pertinent cardiac records. I prefer that the patients who come to see me have their own medical doctor with whom I can work with in caring for the patient."
