Originally from New York City, Dr. Fields lives in the West Valley with his wife and has been practicing in the area since 1986.

When asked when he began playing guitar, he says, "I started playing guitar when I heard the Beatles in 1964." Dr. Fields attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH for his bachelor's degree and New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY, for medical school, completing a surgery internship at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, followed by an Orthopaedic Residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, NY.
